        Orlando Ski and Travel Club is currently deep within its planning stage for our different 2024-2025 Ski Trips. To date there is only 1 of our planned Ski trips - Pre-Holiday December Trip to Vail Colorado that is a planned EPIC Ski Pass destination. As of this early date, our other currently planned Ski destinations for 2025 will all be to IKON Ski Pass destinations. If you like to purchase Annual Ski Passes rather than any possible group lift ticket offerings if/when available then this is the best time (lease expensive) to purchase your annual passes for next year; prior to their first planned price increase (Typically mid-April). Use this link

        Purchase your Annual IKON passes rather than directly with IKON. It's not more expensive using this link and you will possibly (if offered) earn lodging credits coming back to you once you're signed up for trips with us.  FYI, you may also use this same link to purchase your Annual EPIC passes and EPIC Day Passes rather than directly with EPIC. These provided links also help support Your Club rather than you purchasing directly with IKON or EPIC (which doesn't) as their renewal advertising most likely suggests.

        Come join us at what has now become one of our annual meet-ups on Saturday, April 13th! Let's celebrate the halfway to Oktoberfest at the local German Society. Beers, Potato Pancakes, Stein holding contests, lederhosen, and fun!
