About Skiyente

Founded in 1955 Skiyente Ski Club is the oldest, active, chartered all Women's Ski Club in the United States!  We are an active group of women dedicated to skiing and having fun.  We love racing, skiing the powder and everything between.  We have fun on and off the mountain with our meetings and several events happening in and around town.  We have events scheduled throughout the year.  We are more than a "ski" club!
