Mr. Bryan Goehring started the ski club in 2005 with a handful of kids and one van. The club was part of the Montgomery County Parks and Recreation Department. Dozens of schools across the county had ski clubs until the budget cuts in 2009. Many clubs folded, however Mr. Goehring decided to continue sponsoring the ski club with the help of 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 Takoma Park Middle School 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 accountability. Parents and children are responsible for understanding The Rules and Expectations. There are other clubs in the area, however they charge a higher fee for less trips. We feel our club is the best, however our format is not ideal for every household. Participants are required to be Respectful, Accountable, and Stewards of the club. I will not hesitate to dismiss a participant(s) who breaks club rules.
