Welcome to the Slalom Gates Ski Club Website!

Our club is a non-profit, recreational club run by volunteers. We are open to skiers, snowboarders, and snowshoers of all ages and walks of life and of course people who like to have fun. We offer day trips and overnight trips for downhill skiing/riding as well as overnight hut trips for backcountry (x-country, Telemark) skiing and snowshoeing.  Additionally we sponser a number of social events throughout the year; concerts, parties, BBQ's, camping, hiking and bicycle rides.

Monthly meetings are the 3rd Wednesday of each month. While our newly formatted, super fun meetings are open to everyone (bring your friends!), you must be a member of Slalom Gates Ski Club to participate in the drawings for lift tickets and merchandise at each meeting.  Visit our Membership area to purchase a club membership. 

Slalom Gates Ski Club and the Satellite Ski Club have a cooperative agreement that allows us to participate on their trips for a $10 guest fee.  Go to their website for information on their trips.  www.satelliteskiclub.org

Join the Slalom Gates Ski Club Meetup to stay informed of special activities and speakers at each meeting.

Upcoming Events:

WEEKDAY CAMPING TRIP!!!   Mon 7/28 - Thurs 7/31 (3 nights)  $5 per person per night!

Group E campsite at Twin Lakes Lakeview Campground. The campground has spectacular views of the lake and some camping sites have views and some don’t—parts of ours likely will. It accommodates tents and RVs but no hook-ups, a dump is close by.  We have a permit for 50 people and up to 26 vehicles with 2 vehicles per pull in spot.  Large RVs may take up 2 spaces, so let us know if that’s what you have.  Dogs are welcome here!

Check in 2 PM on Monday 7/28, check out 12 noon on Thursday, 7/31

Amenities include vault toilets, drinking water, picnic tables, campfire rings and pedestal grills. Firewood may be brought in or purchased onsite.  There are no bear proof boxes.

Advance payment is not required, we will collect payment at the campsite, but please RSVP to Pat Rush, PATSARUSH@yahoo.com by July 20th with type of vehicle you will have. Certain RVs may take up 2 vehicle spaces which will cost an extra $5 per night as well as leaving fewer spaces for regular cars.  Include your phone number if you can drive others or wish to ride and we will send you the numbers of the willing carpoolers - we strongly recommend carpooling if at all possible.

The directions from Leadville: drive south 15 miles on Hwy 24, turn right on Hwy 82 and travel 4 miles to Lake County Road 24 and turn right and go 1 mile north to Lakeview Campground.

Activities:

Hiking and Biking:  The Continental Divide Trail, which runs from Canada to Mexico, is a non-motorized trail that passes Lakeview Campground. Mountain bikes are allowed in the section from Halfmoon Road south to Twin Lakes

Ambitious Hiking:  There are many 14ers nearby!

Boating:  South of the campground lies Twin Lakes, Colorado's largest natural glacier lakes. Sailing and water skiing are among the popular activities here. Fishing includes lake, rainbow and mackinaw trout.

Driving Tours:  The Top of the Rockies Scenic Byway leads to Independence Pass, one of the highest paved passes in Colorado.  Aspen is on the other side of the Independence Pass,  the historic mining town of Leadville is about 1/2 hr to the north, Buena Vista is about 1/2 hr to the south.

Optional:  bring games, firewood, and a dish to share for Tuesday’s potluck dinner about 5:30-6 PM

If the trip is full, or if you plan to stay only 1 or 2 nights, or you do not wish to share a pull-in with another vehicle you can make your own reservations at 1-877-444-6777 or  http://www.recreation.gov/. At this time there are many individual sites available at the Lakeview Campground for $17/night. You can still socialize and hike with the group if you have your own separate site.
