DAY TRIPS - OVERVIEW
North Toronto Ski Club is a traveling downhill, snowboard and nordic club run by member volunteers.
We offer Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday day trips for downhill skiers and snowboarders; Saturday and Sunday day trips for cross-country skiers to destinations in and around Ontario. For those who would like to get away for the day we have three convenient bus pick-up points around the city and our ski/board day trip destinations vary each day. We offer Wednesday getaways to the private clubs around Ontario such as Alpine, Devil's Glen or Georgian Peaks. Just check the website or facebook group for any changes to our schedule, departure times, trip costs or other information.
Daytrips are a great way to get to know other skiers or boarders as they tend to always come out on the same day each week! This way you'll always know someone on the bus! Check our day trips schedule to see which day trips are followed by an Après party. Trips with an Après stay at the hill until the posted time and allow members to socialize during various themed events such as, beach night, Mardi-Gras, toga party etc.
Our three pickup points are Merton Street (Yonge & Davisville area), York Mills & Yonge and Hwy7 & Hwy 400.
We use Coach Canada buses. These are usually white or red and will often display "North Toronto Ski Club" or "Bus 1/2/3" in the front window. However, different buses occasionally appear, and other clubs use some of our pickup locations, so ask if you're not sure.
Membership entitles you to Alpine and/or Cross-Country lessons on every scheduled Saturday and Sunday beginning in January for approximately 10-12 weeks. Ski and Board Instructions on Wednesday daytrips are based on instructor availability and therefore cannot be guaranteed.
To book a day trip just use the convenient Online Sign-up booking system on the website. You can sign up for Saturday and Sunday trips up until Thursday midnight and you can sign up for Wednesday trips until Monday at midnight. Please note that if we are very close to full capacity on buses, sign-up for the trips may close earlier. So if you're planning to sign up for a day trip, don't wait until the last minute.
To get a full credit if you cancel a trip, Weekend day trips must be canceled by 8:00 PM on the Wednesday before the trip and Wednesday day trips must be canceled by 8:00 PM the Friday before the trip by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org If you cancel after these deadlines you will only receive partial credit equal to the lift ticket portion of the price (you still owe the bus portion since your seat is guaranteed.)
