President's Message

Hello Orlando Ski and Adventure Travel Club members! 

Our 2024 Club ski trips are now leaving back-to-back out of MCO Orlando nearly every week January through March. This year we have a long list of Wonderful Western U.S. Ski destinations that include Whistler, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Telluride, Crested Butte, Mt Bachelor, and Park City.  Check out our Facebook page to view some of the various trip photos being posted by Michelle our Marketing guru and our coolest club members. These photos and videos reveal some of the fun that we have on our trips.

It was great catching up with friends at the Club’s January Social held at An Tobar Irish Pub in Maitland. So much excitement in the air from the stories of the 2 trips that had just taken place and the anticipation I could see on people’s faces for our upcoming trips.

There are a few opportunities remaining on these Adventure Trips listed below. We will NOT be skiing as these are our “Great Weather” trips! 

Sign-up now and you will not miss out on the fun!
