In 1978, a group of friends who shared a passion for skiing and travel, formed Club St. Bernard. Over the years, our club has grown to include an average membership of around 100 members: couples, singles, and families. Our travel adventures typically are based on the Texas Ski Council travel calendar, but we also run our own club trips, as well. While most of ski, we do have a few snowboarders, and a lot of non-skiers who just enjoy the beauty of the mountains and always find alternative activities to pursue on ski trips. Not all of our trips are ski trips… we have trekked to exotic locales like the Galapagos Islands, Machu Picchu, Egypt, South Africa, Australia, and more! While we don’t actually have a St. Bernard dog, we do claim Max, a member’s grand-dog, as our un-official mascot! If you, too, have a passion for snow sports and/or travel, we’d love to meet you!
