About us Partners Ski Club of Great Britain The Ski Club of Great Britain works in partnership with ICS supporting seasonal chaplaincy work in Zermatt and Wengen.

Established in 1903, the Ski Club's purpose is to promote and protect safe, enjoyable and inspiring snowsports experiences for anyone who loves snow. How the Ski Club of Great Britain began Back in 1903, when ski lifts and safety bindings were unknown, 12 men sat down to dinner at a fashionable restaurant in London (Cafe Royal) and decided to form a ski club - the Ski Club of Great Britain. Their aim was to encourage other people to learn to ski, help members improve and take more enjoyment from their skiing while bringing together people interested in the sport.
