The SSMU Ski and Snowboard club, formerly the McGill Snowboard Club, is the only non-competitive ski or snowboard club at McGill University. We offer our members transportation and discounted lift tickets to local mountains every Saturday and some Sundays throughout the winter season. In addition to regular riding throughout the winter we host a series of events throughout the year including parties, movie screenings and apres-skis!
The SSMU Ski & Snowboard Club offers the cheapest means to go skiing each week for anyone stranded in Montreal without a car. Due to our significant size we are able to secure the cheapest lift ticket deal with the best mountains in the area. As a result we can choose the hill with the best snow on a weekly basis to ensue that you never miss the fresh powder.

If conditions allow us, we try and do a trip or two before fall semester exams. Otherwise, we start the weekend after Christmas break. We are now hosting trips both Saturday and sometimes Sunday for more downhill fun and convenience!
Unfortunately we do not allow for trip cancellation as tickets are non-refundable. If you are unable to go on a trip that you are registered for, you can transfer the trip to someone else by giving them your ticket code. If there are exceptional circumstances, please send us an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Buses line up along Sherbrooke at the Roddick Gates and typically depart between 5:30-7:30AM. The exact time is specified when the trip is posted. If you are late in the morning we will not wait for you so be sure to be there on time!

If you register for a day trip but fail to show up on the morning of the trip, you will be subject to a Missed Trip Fee.

Refunds are done electronically 1-3 days after the day of the trip. A confirmation email will be sent to you once your refund has been issued.
If you register for an overnight trip and fail to show up at the scheduled time of departure, you will not be reimbursed at all.
Yes! We allow up to 3 guests to accompany you per trip. You receive one free guess pass each season to bring someone at the same price that a member pays. After that, any additional guests must pay an additional $30 for transportation.

Possibly! It is possible that we leave the trip open for registration after our Wednesday @ noon deadline, depending on how full the busses are. However, in order to guarantee yourself a spot you must register by noon on Wednesday.
