HomeDOWNHILL SKIING & SNOWBOARDING

Downhill skiing and snowboarding are new additions for FVBSC in 2020! 

Downhill skiing and snowboarding are great crossover activities for cyclists. Skiing combines the serene joy of being outside in winter with the adrenaline rush of speeding down a snowy hill or mountain. ALL GUESTS AND MEMBERS MUST SIGN WAIVER FOR ALL SKI AND BOARDING ACTIVITIES.


Day Trips to Alpine Valley Resort

Lou Padron will be leading multiple weekend trips to Alpine Valley Resort in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, approximately 90 minutes north of the Fox Valley area. FVBSC members will enjoy discounted rates off lift tickets and rentals. Lou, a certified snowboarding instructor, will also be providing free lessons to interested members. All members and guests must sign SKI & SNOWBOARDING WAIVER.
