Der Sitzmark Ski Club

Event Calendar

Contact the trip leader directly about availability of an event. You need to become a member in advance of joining most trips. All of our trip leaders are people with regular jobs. Running a trip is just a volunteer effort for the benefit of the club. It may take a few days for the trip leader to get back to you. To participate on a trip, you must be a member of Der Sitzmark or any Western Pennsylvania Ski Council affiliate club. Space may be limited on any trip. All events are subject to changes and availability.

Make payments to "Der Sitzmark Ski Club," not the trip leader. Exceptions: Money for Mary Ann's trips are payable to "Mary Ann Sarver's Tours."
