Default No Ski Clubs in the Villages?

With all the gazillion clubs in the Villages, I haven’t found a ski club. When I lived in Miami years ago we had the second largest ski club in the country and since there were so many members, our ski trips to anywhere were very inexpensive.
I’m sure there has to be a lot of skiers in this active community. ⛷🏂⛄️

Like in Iowa................Build it and they will come.

Create the club, get out the news......you might find a bunch of new friends.

Assuming you have the interest, you can call the rec dept to get information about starting a club, getting it advertised in the weekly rec news, and reserving a room for meetings.

Go for it, girl.

I won't be joining. I can't chew gum and walk and I hate that white...…………..stuff. But to each her/his/their own.

I too would be interested. Miami has a very large club.. Tamp club is not a club but is a travel agency -- probably need about 30 people to form a club

I just returned from Snowshoe, WV and saw a Villages charter bus picking up a group. I assumed Villages residents, but don’t know for sure.
