How we do it
People – This is our secret weapon! We’re known for our wild and crazy members who create fun (and just a little bit of trouble) wherever they go. We’re all about going new places, meeting new people and trying new things.
Experience – Our Trip Leaders have planned and lead trips all over the world for many years. They’re committed, year-round, to finding us the best locations and the best prices.
Buying Power – With over 200 members, we’re able to get great group discounts on everything from Ski trips to Carribean Cruises. We even subsidize many of our trips! How many clubs can say that? We have over $30,000 in club funded subsidies.
Warren Ski Club was established in 1956 when 20-30 local Trumbull County skiers started car pooling to Western New York ski areas. The club grew in size through the years and bus trips to ski areas were organized. During the late 70’s, social activities were added year round and the club grew to well over 200 skiers.
During the 80’s, more year-round activities were added and the number of ski trips increased, as did the number of buses and memberships. The late 80’s and early 90’s found us buying as many as 200 airplane seats to the Rockies and Europe. Weekend trips increased to eight per season, with as many as five buses on some of the more popular trips.
The 90’s were great, since skiing had become very popular and the economy was doing well. Through volunteers, great management and over 600 enthusiastic members, WSC became one of the fastest growing ski clubs in the Cleveland Metro Ski Council (CMSC). Our Black Sheep Race Team became a strong contender in the CMSC race program and held the #1 spot for two straight years.
As the club continued to grow and times changed, we adapted. Members wanted non-ski trips too – so we started adding trips to places like Russia, Ireland, China, Greece, Italy and the Caribbean. We also added trips like Wine Tours, White Water Rafting, Biking and Naascar.
We have simply become a GREAT ski club that promotes travel, activities and FUN during all 4 seasons. In the spring, we start biking – with our weekly Pedal Parties running straight through the fall. We also run a 1 day Wine Trip visiting several local wineries. Spring and summer also feature our annual Pig Roast (always a great party – people come from ALL over), our famous Put-In-Bay weekend (drawing approx 100 pub crawlers each year), our Night at the Lake party, golf outings and more….. We run summer/fall trips too – such as a Caribbean Cruise, a weekend Wine Tour and White Water Rafting. In the winter, we live up to our name as we offer awesome ski trips – from 1 day local trips to Europe and West. Also, we have a ski and snowboard race team, called the Black Sheep, which competes most weekends in the Cleveland Metro Ski Council circuit. Our Black Sheep consist of racers from all levels – beginner to advanced.
Aside from seasonal activities, we have year round events – like our Pub of the Month and Membership Meetings. Everything we do is geared towards having FUN with great people and using good group value pricing. Our events and trips are awesome and you CAN’T TRAVEL CHEAPER – but it’s our PEOPLE that make Warren Ski Club a great club to join.
Planning is underway to visit those parts of the world (and outer space) that we haven’t seen yet – and to re-visit parts that we just gotta do again! We’ve also started teaming with other clubs throughout the U.S. for even more buying power – and have made some great new friends in the process.
