The snows still cover much of our northwest heights, but are barren of any but the most ardent skiers -- most have traded their poles and boards for rakes, shovels and golf clubs.  Only Mt. Hood is still open... it will remain so for quite a while up on the glacier.

Our fourteen scheduled 2011-2012 for this year are now history.  And what a year it was!  In the last half century, our snow pack has been decreasing -- until this year -- and what a pleasant surprise.  We all hope and pray for this to be the start of a new pattern.

Don't miss our newsletter, The Tumbleweed News, for all the latest info.  It is  distributed monthly to all club members.  The latest edition is available to all at The Tumbleweed News.
Others who want individual copies or to be placed on the DSC mailing list should contact webmaster@desertskiclub.org.

We also belong to the Northwest Ski Club Council (NWSCC) who also sponsor trips open to all affiliated clubs, some of which may be of interest to you.  Below, you can also find links to the Council web s
ite and their schedule as well as a few selected trips that may be of particular interest..

We are The Desert Ski Club, the Ski & Snowboard Club of the Tri Cities (Pasco, Kennewick, Richland) in Southeastern Washington State.

We usually meet the first Thursday of each month at the Shilo I
nn on Bradley Blvd. in Richland.  Social hour begins at 6:30 pm, followed by our meeting at 7:00 pm. All members and potential members (21 and older) are welcome.

We are a not-for-profit all-volunteer organization, incorporated in 1953, that has over the years evolved into a year around Sports and Social Activities Club for singles & couples.  However our primary goal
remains to be promotion of snow skiing, snow boarding and other winter recreational outdoor sports.  We meet regularly every month as noted above.  Most of our trips allow minors (check with trip leaders for details). All trips are BYOB, and we provide basics like water and snacks.  We sponsor between five and eight ski trips each year -- but this year, almost twice that.

We also have a bulletin board, or discussion group, available for the benefit and use of all locals interested in winter sports. Anyone can view this site; however, if you want to submit posts to the group and/or request membership in the group, you can do so by contacting the webmaster from here.

Membership annual cost is $25.
