MEETINGS AND SOCIAL EVENTS
BSC sponsors regular meetings and off-mountain social events during the ski season. We generally have one or more guest speakers at our monthly meetings who will make a presentation on some aspect of downhill skiing. A brief business meeting typically follows the presentations.
This season, once again we will host the popular monthly apres socials at Broken Top Bottle Shop, beginning Oct. 24th
