Directions to Club
About Fagowees Ski Club (DC Branch)The Fagowees (Fuh-GOW-eez) ski club was established in 1966 with the intent of offering ski trips and year round activities for its members at low cost, group rates but with a high level of quality and fun.
Over the years, other branches were created across the US. Currently we have branches in Cleveland, Denver, and Sacramento. Each club is a little different, but we try to all gather annually for a week long trip to enjoy an area and wherever life takes us.
Our reputation is that we are a little wild. We certainly strive to enjoy ourselves when we are together. And, while we call ourselves a ski club we do plan activities year round, in fact some of our summer events are larger than our ski trips.
Individual members must be at least 21, as alcohol is allowed at most events. Family memberships are good for couples and may include any minor dependants (under adult supervision).
We are a fun loving bunch of Skiers and boarders that do much more than Ski. We plan float trips, white water rafting, campouts, motorcycle rides and even go on cruises!
