Thinking of joining Washington Ski Touring Club?
Get an idea here of our trips but to sign up for weekend or longer trips you'll need to be a member. Members will register for trips through the "Trip and Meeting Calendar"; however, non-members will NOT see the details of trip leader contact info and some other stuff . We hope this Trip List will get you intrigued enough to join the Club. Day trips are open to non-members and some of them are listed on the Calendar; many day trips are arranged at the last minute as snow conditions warrant and often are posted only through the member Forum.
