The Alpine Ski Club is an active and friendly club of ski mountaineers. It was the first ski-mountaineering club in Britain (founded by Arnold Lunn in 1908) and remains the first choice for independent ski mountaineers.
The objectives of the club are to promote mountaineering on ski and to encourage good fellowship amongst ski-mountaineers; to encourage mountaineering expeditions on ski throughout the world and to promote a better knowledge of the mountains in winter.
