Mike Pearson, Trip Committee Chair
I became a member of the Tampa Bay Snow Skiers & Boarders in the 2009-10 season, traveling to Crested Butte for my first time. That trip was so wonderful I swore I’d never ski without the club again. Since then, I've traveled with the club on about 2 trips a year. Every trip was spectacular. I love skiing and hanging out with others with similar interests, and found that leading a trip enhances my enjoyment. I was an assistant leader for my first time in the 2010-11 season, assisted the next two seasons, and have been a trip leader on one trip each year thereafter. I first tried skiing on a road-trip with friends during a winter break in college. I was fortunate to have several great ski experiences before joining TBSSB, but my trips with the club have been the best. Come travel with us for your best ski trips ever

A little background goes with this one. Our Club is a member of an organization known as the "Florida Ski Council". This is a group made up of Ski Clubs from around the State of Florida. They hold meetings and set up trips that all participating Clubs attend. This greatly enhances our Club's "Buying Power" in the Skiing Industry. There are too many positive reasons that we are members of the FSC, to list them here. So essentially, the FSC Rep. is the liaison between our Club and the FSC.
