Light appetizers will be served beginning at 6:30 while they last along with a cash bar.  DJ music begins at 7:00pm.

Conveniently located just south of the Perimeter (I-285) on the upper level of a shopping center called The Prado — we're in the back. Look for the silver grain silo and the two stone lions

Our club has come a long way during the last 50 years.  Incorporated in December, 1964, the Atlanta Ski Club has planned more than 1,000 ski and snowboard trips and adventure trips since 1964 throughout the years.  We would not have lasted if it had not been for the countless volunteers that have served the club since 1964.   Comprised of a volunteer board of directors, there are many, many people who deserve a big round of applause.  We are reaching out to all past and present members of the club.  Join us on Saturday October 25, 2014 at the Five Seasons Brewing Company at the Prado to reminisce the great times shared as a member of the Atlanta Ski Club.


Below are the minutes of the very first Board Meeting recorded for the Atlanta Ski Club.

“November 11, 1964
A meeting of the Atlanta Ski Club, held in the Sky Room of the Decatur Federal Building, Thursday evening, November 11, 1964, was called order by Charles D. Murphy.
This being a newly formed club, officers were appointed rather than elected.  Officers appointed are as follows:  President – Charles D. Murphy, Jr.; Vice President – Lester Colondy, Secretary – Avyrilla Holmes, Treasurer – William F. Swearingen.  The above mentioned shall serve as officers for the 1964 – 1965 ski season.
Committees established and chairman of these committees are:  Membership – George and Dollie Swanson; Programs – Walker Knox; Social - John Smart; Publicity - Marcia McGahe; Trips– Bob Crouse, and Special Committee - Dennis Gleim
The motion that membership fees of $3.00 for single membership and $5.50 for family membership was thoroughly discussed and carried.
Lester Colondy talked briefly on ski equipment.
The club then enjoyed a social hour at which coffee and cookies were served.
The social hour was followed by two movies.  Tom Munson of United Air presented the first movie on skiing in Aspen Colorado followed by Winter Sports in Switzerland.
Plans for the first trip of the season to Aspen, Colorado were discussed.  The cost for this trip will be $170.00.   (FYI – the first trip to Aspen, Colorado was March 11- 20, 1965. 120 people signed up and the round-trip cost $170.00….. it was a bus trip)

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned by Charles D. Murphy at 11:30pm.
