Whattuupppp Ski Clubbers!

Little Five is just around the corner and we have a ton of events/news for you.

1.)  The women’s Little 500 SKI team came in 1st place in Team Pursuit this past weekend, beating the 2nd place team by more than eight seconds. They deserve our club’s entire support during the race to cheer them on! So…

2.)  We will be having a pregame before the race on Friday April 24th from 12-3pm before the race starts at 4. Check your emails for the location! If you’re coming to the pregame, we want you at the race too! (At least do your very best to come). IF YOU ARE BEING DRUNK AND RUDE AT THE RACE, WE WILL ASK YOU TO LEAVE! Our team can be penalized for our actions, so even though we want to get crazy wild and do beer bongs from the roof, try and keep your drunkenness under control at the track.

3.)  Post-party: After the race, we’re having a huge Little Five party to celebrate SKI! Shenanigans start at 10 p.m., location TBA. THIS IS A MEMBERS ONLY PARTY. Because of the crowds, there are absolutely no exceptions to this. Members will be getting a wristband and we will have security. Check your emails this upcoming week for more details!

4.)  Little 500 tanks are going to be on sale this week for $5. Check out our Facebook page to see what they look like!

5.)  No committee meeting this Monday! We will resume meetings at 8:30 in Info East on April 27. These meetings are a great way to get more involved with the club and help out at events. Those who have served on the committee for two consecutive semesters are eligible to apply for an officer position for the next year.

That’s all for now, can’t wait for Little Five! Not that we’ll remember much…

Ski and Party Naked,

Welcome back skiers and snowboarders!

It’s hard to believe, but we are quickly entering yet another wild year of classes, tailgates and of course, ski club. The officers have been planning a ton of events to make sure we all start the season off right, so take a look at what we have planned for Welcome Week in addition to all of our other ski club news!

  1. WINTER BREAK TRIP ANNOUNCED – We are taking all of you crazies to Breckenridge, Colo., for a week you will never forget (or might, depending). The trip is January 4-9 with the 3rd and 10th as travel days. The trip includes party bus transportation to and from, lodging and lift tickets. Price details and the portal to sign up will be released soon, but check off those dates, you aren’t going to want to miss this! Callouts and info sessions held in the fall.
  2. Membership dues – If you haven’t paid your member dues, GET ON IT! Dues are discounted for the month of August at $25 and will go up to $35 after. To find out more information about dues and what they get you in the club, hop on over to our FAQ and JOIN pages. To pay, you can use the BUY NOW link on the side of our webpage, pay in cash or in person at any of our events or meetings.
  3. Welcome Week – This is the time of year we love to recruit new members, so feel free to come to any of our events or meetings! We will be chalking, holding callouts, tabling and running around campus drinking a lot of fruit punch. Make sure to spread the word to all of your friends and come to any of our Welcome Week shenanigans.
    1. BOATS- We are packing up the cars and coolers and taking a pontoon boat out onto the cool, crystalline waters of good old Lake Monroe on Thursday August 21. THIS IS A 21 AND OVER EVENT. The cops really crack down on the party boats, especially during a busy week like this, and getting a drinking ticket at the beginning of the year sucks. We have room for 24 people and the cost is $20 a person. We are going to need four sober drivers (your boat experience will be free!) so let us know if you are interested. The link to sign up will be released in the next week.
    2. COOKOUT- I think we love having cookouts more than we love $3 Thursday’s at Roys…just kidding, that will never be true. But we do love them, so come with an empty stomach and be ready to chow down on brats (cheese filled?), burgers and beverages. ‘MERICA. Time and place TBA so keep an eye out!
    3. PARTY- We will be having one of our ski club parties to kick start another awesome year. $5 cover for nonmembers and free for all you who have paid your dues. We WILL have a list of members at the door. Date and location announced closer to Welcome Week.
  4. Committee Meetings – As one of the biggest clubs on campus, we need all the help we can get! The committee is the planning body of the organization, is open to all members and those who serve for two semesters are eligible to run for officer positions in the spring. We’ll announce our first few meetings closer to the end of August.
  5. Shirts- We will be selling 2014 ski club shirts for $15 at our callouts and other events, so make sure to grab one before they run out!
  6. Miscellaneous – We will be planning a camping trip, bar crawls and other excursions for the fall, so stay tuned!

Much love from the entire IUSSC Exec Board –Ski Naked, stay classy and Live. Life. Large.







Have a Great Summer!

Thank you to all our members for another great year with the IU Ski and Snowboard Club! We had a blast hitting the slopes in Telluride this winter and Aspen this spring, and of course tailgates and all of the fun activities in between. Woah. That rhymed.

We had a few firsts for our club: Our first time participating in a philanthropy on campus and our first Little 500 Women’s Bike team ( who rocked it and finished 7th, best finish for a rookie team in school history!)

The new exec board has some fun things planned for all of you next year, so don’t miss out! Remember to renew your membership for 2014-15 or join us for the first time and see what we are all about. (Go to our join page to see how to become a member)

Also follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on all things Ski Club. I promise we are highly entertaining

We are excited to see all of the returning and new faces next school year for more ski naked memories!

Stay classy and Live. Life. Large.

Telluride Openings!

Hello Listserv!


Two things for you—

-          Our Annual Rail Jam will be held on Friday December 6th at 6pm in Dunn Meadow!

  • Come ride real rails, on real snow or watch others shred it up!
  • Prizes, giveaways, swag and an overall good time!
  • Stay tuned for more information soon and check out our flyer attached!



We are opening between 5-10 spots on our winter break trip to Telluride, CO. This includes bus transportation, lodging and lift tickets. To become eligible, you must fill out the waitlist form below.



Spots will be offered on a first come- first serve basis. If you are one of the first 5-10 students to sign up you will receive an email within the next week with information on how to pay. You must have the full payment of $650 ready to go within 48 hours of being offered the spot, otherwise it will be offered to the next person on the waitlist. Please note the waitlist has been open for 24 hours already to our due-paid members, so getting on the list early won’t necessarily assure you get a spot.


If you are further down on the waitlist and aren’t offered a spot, we will send you an email in a week or so to let you know (sorry! Sign up earlier next time!!).


Again, this is your final chance to get on our trip to Telluride. If you have any other general questions about the trip, please let us know!


Have a wicked awesome week; cross your fingers pray for more snow!

Winter Break Details!


Public Link to Sign Up: https://gw.echotours.com/Register/246-SocialTrip/frtrimar

Members Link: Check your inboxes. DON’T PAY DUES TWICE.


Where: Telluride, Colorado

When: January 4th – January 9th (Travel Days January 3rd and January 10th)

Cost: $500 for the trip, $150 for the party bus there and back


Trip Includes

6 days, 5 nights slopeside condo accommodation

4 of 5 day Lift Pass

Discounted Ski&Board Rentals

Club events!

Pub Crawls, Theme Parties and Spa Gatherings

Free Shuttle Services

Unreal skiing, and one of the best vacations of your life

Heated pools to relax in after a long day on the mountain



Explain the travel days?

It takes about a day to get out there and back on the bus, so we leave from Bloomington on the 3rd and get back on the 10th. Make sure you account for that when planning your schedules. Classes start the following Monday. We use luxury busses, with several professional drivers.


I don’t know anyone else on the trip?

That’s not a question! But that’s still fine, we’ll match you up with the right set of roommates based on your preferences, but everyone is wicked friendly, and you’re guaranteed to meet a ton of people the entire trip. The busses are the best way to meet new people so don’t be lame and fly out.

What if I’m not a spectacular skier/rider?

You’ll be just fine. We have skiers and riders at every level, from never been on a mountain all the way to park/pipe and backountry bowls. There’s always plenty of people to ski/ride with.

Hmmm… seems kind of expensive. Is it worth it?

I promise you, unless you go pro or make your future employer pay for all your ski trips, you will never ski for cheaper than this trip. The condos are amazing, you’ll be with close to 1,000 other college students. It’s an spring break with snow, at high altitudes. Get ready. Lift tickets alone would usually cost you nearly $400 for 4 days. We’ll get you that, condos, parties, and transportation for under $700.

Who all can come on the trip?

The trip is open to students age 18+ from ANY school, as well as alumni. So invite your friends, invites your siblings. We have had students from Purdue, Cincinnati, OSU, Ball State, IUPUI, and everywhere in between join us on our trips. They just have to pay their dues with the club (which can be done automatically via the signup link which will be out shortly).



We’ll have more information coming out shortly, but if you have any questions about the trip, don’t hesitate to email us! Hope the school year is going great for ya’ll. If you haven’t already, make sure you pay dues on our website www.indiana.edu/~snowski . The signup link for the trip will be out soon. Have a great Sunday! (Go Patriots)



And so it begins…

Well I see you have found our IUSSC webpage. Welcome welcome… make sure you sign up for our newsletter on the side and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the up to date announcements on our callouts! We’re hoping to hold our first callouts and info sessions sometime late next week (early September).


Don’t forget, the only way to get updates on our member-only events is to pay your dues and become a member! Don’t delay! Of course, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email us at snowski@indiana.edu. We’ll see you around these next few weeks! Telluride, CO is right around the corner!
