Where Ski & Adventure Begin

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.

he 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.
