Learn to love winter!
High Park Ski Club is Toronto's longest established adult ski and snowboard club. And with age comes experience and knowing what makes for a successful winter sports club: exciting trips, professionally organised, fun people, varied activities and value for money second to none
April 28 update: THANK YOU!!
I would like to sincerely thank all of you for being members of High Park Ski Club. Without all of you we would not exist.
A special thank you to ALL of our volunteers who are the backbone of the club. Absolutely nothing would get done without the volunteer hours put in by members so that their fellow members can enjoy trips, receive lessons, attend socials, check information on our website, read the newsletter, attend election night or AGM virtually, or receive a refund when required, as well as numerous other things. Volunteers are just that and can choose to walk away if they do not feel they are being appreciated. We look forward to honouring all of our volunteers at the Volunteer’s Dinner in September.
I would also like to thank all of the members who attended, either in person or via zoom, this week’s election meeting. We had approximately 50 members attend in person, as well as 40+ virtually, ensuring we achieved the official quorum required by our club By-laws to proceed with the election. There are two events in the annual calendar where members have direct input on how the club is run – the election in April and the Annual General Meeting in September. No official actions can be taken without a quorum of members present as outlined in our By-laws. So again, thank you!
I would like to congratulate and welcome the following members as new Directors to the Board. I look forward to working with each of you.
Director of Administration: Wendy Rangel
Director of Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding: Christine Bellerose
Director of Finance: Francis Rementilla
Director of IT: Peter Kovalchuk
We plan to continue to having a variety of social events and outings over the summer, including our upcoming Year End social at The Pilot on May 11 (please register), and a special cross-border daytrip in July to visit two Frank Lloyd Wright designed complexes (registration is open).
I want to personally wish all of you have a fantastic summer and look forward to seeing you in the fall! FYI SkiFit resumes on Saturday September 9th!
President, High Park Ski Club

Have fun, meet people, and make great friends on & off the snow
Amazing trips are awesome, but it's not just about the snow or destinations at our Club. Just as important is discovering winter sports with friendly, like-minded people who enjoy leading a healthy lifestyle in the outdoors! Join our Club, and you make friends for life.Learn More
