The Baltimore Ski Club was founded in 1947 when only the hardiest
enthusiasts tackled the slopes. Much has changed in the last 70
years, but not the goals of the club.
Smith Goggles and Helmets
January 3rd, 2018
Do you ever stop to think who invented the modern-day goggles for skiing?
In 1965, Dr. Bob Smith, an orthodontist, whose obsession with skiing through deep powder compelled him to invent and revolutionize the ski scene with his double-lens, fog-resistant ski goggle with sealed thermal lens and ventilated foam vent seal.
A lot has changed in 50 years since Dr. Smith's first design became the backbone for Smith Optics, founded in 1969. Don't miss our guest speaker Chris Sadler showcase what's new and innovative in top trending Smith Goggles and Helmets. Chris is a manufacturers rep for Smith and Dakine products lines.
Smith innovations include the patented Regulator lens ventilation system, distortion-free Tapered Lens Technology, and the versatility of the Slider Series.

Did you know that all Baltimore Ski club trips have easy payment plans? That's right, you don't have to come up with the full amount when you sign up for a trip.
Easy payments are spread out over several months in affordable increments which are a lot easier on your wallet and much more manageable.

Blue Ridge Ski Council
The Blue Ridge Ski Council (BRSC) is a collection of DC, Maryland and Virginia area Ski Clubs. The Baltimore Ski Club is a member of the Blue Ridge Ski Council. As a member of the Baltimore Ski Club, you are eligible to participate in the two trips the BRSC organizes for this coming year, the Western Carnival at Breckenridge Colorado and Winterfest at Sugarloaf Maine. You can also look at BRSC sanction trips with another club in the BRSC without joining that club. If you are looking for another ski trip that is a better fit for your schedule, please check out the Blue Ridge Ski Council website at www.skicouncil.com
Eastern Pennsylvania Ski Council
We are now members of the Eastern Pennsylvania Ski Council. Founded in 1946 as the Pennsylvania Federation of Winter Sports Councils (later change to the Pennsylvania Ski Federation). The original councils were the Western, Central, Northeastern, and Eastern Pennsylvania. The Ski Club of Washington DC and the Baltimore Ski Club were also included as part of Federation until The Blue Ridge Ski Council was formed in the 50's. The Central and Northeastern Councils and the Pennsylvania Ski Federation were disbanded in the 1980's and 1990's respectively.
Like the Blue Ridge Ski Council, we are able to promote our club's events and you now have access to their member's trips without joining their clubs. As a member of the EPSC, we receive access to a number of benefits such as discount lift tickets and EPSC sponsored events. Check out their website about discount vouchers for the Pocono Mountains and New England on their website. www.easternpaskicouncil.org
