Mr. Bryan Goehring started the ski club started in 2005 with a handful of kids and one van. The club was part of the Montgomery County Parks and Recreation Department. Budget cuts in 2009 spelled the end for ski funding and Mr. Goehring decided to continue the club with dedicated volunteers. Mr. Brian Baker has been with the club since 2008 and took over in 2014. We currently use four charter buses to transport our 224 participants and volunteer chaperones. We are opened to children ages 11-18. We are not affiliated with MCPS or The City of Takoma.
We depart from TPMS and rotate between Ski Liberty and White Tail. They are both located on the Pennsylvania border. The staff are very familiar with our club and reputation. On rare occassions we depart from Blair High School.
"WE ARE NOT SUMMER CAMP"
We believe in shared accountablity. There are other clubs in the area, however they charge a higher fee for less trips. We feel our club is the best, however we admit that our format is not ideal for all children. Participanats are required to be Respectful, Accountable, and Stewards of the club. I will not hesitate to dismiss a participant(s) who breaks club rules.
