How do I become a member?

To join up, just ask a member to sponsor you. If you don't know any members, no problem, just contact a member of the Committee. New members are expected to attend two work party/orientation weekends at the club. These are lots of fun and provide a great opportunity to meet other members and get a feel for what the Arlberg Ski Club has to offer. The first work party needs to be completed within 12 months of joining, with the second completed within two years. To find out more click here.
