In celebration of our members, your Board invites you to a “Beach Party Weekend & Concert” in St. Augustine” on November 1-2, 2019. Enjoy good times with friends at poolside, stroll the beach, and enjoy a concert at the nearby St Augustine Amphitheatre. For more information, click to see Flyer.

Breaker Breaker - 

This is Steve Clark, your Vice President of Trips for the past 3 years and most recently known as Escapade Leader “Maverick” on the successful 52 person Dude Ranch Trip. My story begins in the early 70’s in Miami.  We then moved to lush, green Oregon and on to Denver, Colorado for middle school which is where I learned to snow ski with my French teacher.  Then It was back to Stuart, Florida for high school where I learned to water ski.  I then attended Florida State University in Tallahassee and skied slalom course with the Water Ski Team.

Both my father and mother were Realtor Brokers and he was a longtime member/trip leader in the Palm Beach Gator Snow Ski Club and in the early 90’s I was first presented with the opportunity to learn about adult skiing and group trips.  I was invited on a New Year’s Eve trip to Mont Tremblant, Canada in where I experienced cold weather and Molson Beer, A’

I have an Accounting Degree from Florida State University and after 13 years of Corporate Accounting/Financial Analysis with ORMC, Florida Hospital and Minnesota Power, I made the choice to follow my passion of Real Estate Sales and a few years later the Orlando Ski and Travel Club. I am a successful and awarded Realtor (Top 5% worldwide) and sell residential real estate throughout all areas of Central Florida.  Feel free to hire me! (Ski Club member references available).

My hobbies include tennis, running, the gym, motorcycles and most recently kayaking.  Cars are a huge love of mine and I’ve enjoyed 25 of them since I’ve been driving.  In 2009 I started taking trips each year with the Orlando Ski Club and have been leading trips beginning in 2014.  I have successfully led 14 trips with more 2 newly launched trips currently available for sign-ups. Many of you have ventured from the norm with me to places like Banff, New Zealand, Las Vegas, Aspen, Vail, Tennessee, and most recently to Whitefish and Flathead Lake, Montana for a wonderful Dude Ranch trip.  I’m looking forward to dreaming up the next Big Adventure for the Orlando Ski and Travel Club.
