CSC Board Elections

It is time to think about the CSC Board elections. Elections are held at the first member gathering in April; Wednesday, April 1, 2015 (as well as via absentee ballot). As the current Board Secretary, Elaine Fouts will oversee the elections this year. Please consider running for the Board!


The CSC runs on volunteers. It isn't as much of a time commitment as you may think, and we need leadership in order for the CSC to continue to prosper. Any member is eligible to run! We need creative, energetic people who have fresh, new ideas.


If you are interested, or would like more information, please contact Elaine Fouts at (614) 506-2632 or bostonlady1951@gmail.comto request a sign-up form/application or any current Board member.

This year as an option, we will be offering our trip packages both with and without lift tickets (OVSC trip excluded). While we call them ski trips, we think that even those who don't ski would enjoy the fresh air, gorgeous vistas and special camaraderie that we skiers have experienced for years. We think we have a great bunch of trips this year that will appeal to both the hard core among us as well as the more casual skier and those who are simply interested in the beautiful scenery and social aspects. And remember, with Columbus Ski Club ski trips all you have to do is show up to the airport and we do the rest!!
