Welcome to the Texas Ski Council (TSC) Website
We are a non-profit, all volunteer organization consisting of 13 clubs throughout Texas and a club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Our member clubs share three common interests: snow-sports, travel and fun.
The purpose of our council is to bring together our member clubs to ski, snowboard and travel. We run four ski trips and two tour/adventure trips world-wide each year. All members associated with our council are eligible to participate in member club trips. This often brings trip options to over 40 per year
Don't live near Texas, no problem, most trips can be purchased without the club arranged air. Just meet us there! We have many members throughout the United States and even some around the world.
We promote youth skiing through our TSC Youth Foundation with discounted lesson packages (ski or snowboarding). See the Youth Skiing tab above for more information.
Please have a look at our website and then visit our Member Clubs Tab to find information about our member clubs. If you live near one of the cities where they are located, they also offer other fun activities around town all year-long. Most member clubs start new trip sales in August and a few even earlier, so don't wait too long to join, nobody wants to sit on a wait-list.
The TSC Bidfest has been cancelled
Dear TSC delegates and members of Texas Ski Council clubs,
Facing this pandemic has put us all into uncertain and unprecedented circumstances. This compels us to do our best to protect the health and safety of our TSC members and industry vendors. To this end, the board made the difficult, and I believe necessary decision to CANCEL the April 16-19, 2020 Bid Meeting in Austin, Texas. If you have hotel reservations, please call Embassy Suites and cancel them. We will coordinate with fellow councils and industry reps to select dates in the future to once again gather together safely or we may go virtual, if necessary, to select our 2022 ski trips. If you have already registered for the Bid Meeting and paid your registration fee, please be patient while we decide if we can meet on a later date. If we choose to do a virtual bid meeting, your registration fee will be refunded. If you would like your registration fee refunded now, please let us know.
We will continue to monitor COVID-19 updates and let you know as soon as we have a plan. As we all face this uncertain path together, be safe, be patient and show kindness in the challenging days and weeks to come.
The TSC Board and I are here to answer any questions and as always, welcome your ideas or suggestions.
