I've just returned from a great visit to Banff, Canada and Lake Louise. What beautiful scenery and ski areas. Come join MA February 25-March 4, 2017 for the second Florida Ski Council trip filled with adventure and staying at two Grand Old Hotels. Watch for details or contact Mary Ann Olden at to sign up for this unforgettable week of skiing with the best club ever, TBSSB.

Join Joe and Karla on a once in a life time ski trip to Japan – March 9-18, 2017. Voted Best Japan Ski Resort by the World Ski Awards each year since 2013, Niseko United is comprised of four resorts on one mountain. Seasonal winds from the Eurasian continent pick up moisture over the warm currents of the Sea of Japan to form snow clouds and in turn some of the driest, lightest powder in the world. A visit to Tokyo is included in this trip. Pre-Trip will be to Kyoto and a Post-Trip to Hong Kong. Contact Joe at or Karla at for more information. Download the application.

The Frequent Traveler Rewards are Now Available

It works like this: Each traveler who goes on more than one organized trip (ski or non-ski led by a trip leader, with all monies paid in full to TBSSB) with the Tampa Bay Snow Skiers & Boarders each season (the Club's fiscal year) will qualify for a cash reward as determined by the Board in April of each season for each additional trip after the first trip. This Club member must be in good standing to be able to collect this reward (meaning no monies owed to the Club).

Each frequent traveler will have to submit within a two (2) month window (postmarked from May 1 - June 30) the approved TBSSB form to collect any reward. The PDF of this Frequent Traveler Rewards program form will be available during this time.

We are putting together an AWESOME ski schedule for 2016-17 season (including a few non-ski trips)! Our Ski trips start in December and will go through April 2017. I am certain we will have a trip to meet your needs at one of the many amazing ski resorts. FSC Trips: January Beaver Creek; February Banff and March Japan. As soon as we are able to confirm our schedule we will post the list on the website. Please plan to attend our Preview Party (August) in St Pete and/or Kick-off Party in Tampa (Sept) to meet the trip leaders, get more details on great trips and just have fun socializing with fellow skiers!

I'm looking forward to another great year and I'm proud to represent TBSS&B as President.
