The Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council ("CMSC") was formed in 1957 and now has 70 plus member clubs. The clubs represented offer downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing as well as various other activities year round. They are adventure clubs, singles clubs, family clubs, and clubs that welcome all comers.
CMSC offers clubs the opportunity to participate in our council sponsored ski/snowboard trips: Europe, Chicago Week and Winter Carnival, our Racing program for both skiing and snowboarding with 7 weekend races a year, Instructors Clinic where a club member can learn to teach beginners skiing or snowboarding techniques, Trip Seminar where clubs select destinations for the upcoming trips, along with various other activities.
Our publication, the Midwest Skier, and our web site keep us all up to date with events and news of the ski industry, council and clubs.
CMSC is managed entirely by volunteers who are members of our clubs. We encourage club members to join us on committees and as council officers. Ski clubs appoint delegates to the CMSC to represent their club. CMSC acts with the member ski clubs to promote the sports of skiing and snowboarding
