Special Membership Deal---2 Years for the Price of One!


2020 has been an extremely difficult year for businesses and organizations everywhere -- and the Columbia Ski Club is certainly no exception. We know that some of you elected not to renew your membership for the 2020-21 year since the prospect of travel or attending large group activities during the Covid-19 pandemic was not very attractive. And we know there are others who did renew, or joined for the first time, who have questioned what value they’re receiving for the dues they’ve already paid. 

So, the CSC Board approved offering a special one-time deal as follows:

  • For those who already renewed (or joined) for 2020-21 (“active” members”), we are automatically extending your membership another year, so your membership expiration date will be 5/31/2022. No action is needed on your part.
  • For those who understandably are not yet active members but renew (or join) by May 31, 2021, your membership will also be extended to 5/31/2022.

In other words, everyone who is an active member for 2020-21 is really getting 2 years for the price of 1! This offer applies to individual memberships and family memberships as well. 

And rest assured, just as soon as it is truly safe to gather in large groups outside our “social bubbles”, we’ll return to the great variety of activities and trips that have made our club so much fun since 1981. 

Can’t wait to have a “Goodbye, Coronavirus” party, right?


 You can now join or renew membership in one of two ways: 

1. Via ClubExpress - complete online & pay online with credit card (or mail a check); most expedient method

Note: If you were a CSC member in the past you already have a Club Express account. 

Please do not create a new account.  Look for a Club Express Welcome email (from early June)

with your username/password.

If you need help with your  Club Express username or logging in, send an email to: osepe@columbiaskiclub.org

2. Fillable PDF form - download, fill out, print and mail in with a check
