Kronenstadt Ski Club
About Us and other Stuff
The Kronenstadt Ski Club is unique in offering social
skiing opportunities in a distinctly noncompetitive
atmosphere (although we do have a few members that
wander off to the race course). This year we have
scheduled nine drive up trips to Mammoth Mountain. At
Mammoth Mountain, we enjoy comfortable four bedroom
condo accommodations and the ever popular 'how few
people can we fit into a hot tub' for pre-dinner relaxation.
We also keep up a tradition of variety in our non-skiing
social functions. Click the Social Events Tab.
If you are looking for a small ski club that is strong on
camaraderie and friendship, Kronenstadt will meet your
needs. Non-members are welcome on all trips and events.

"Snowjob" This is not about shoveling snow, but it is the name of the Kronenstadt
Ski Club Newsletter. Although the club was established in 1963, I do not know who
came up with this name or when. (Does anyone know?) The Snowjob was originally
published monthly by a team of graphic designers and editorial and publishing
specialists. In the early days that meant typing, xerox, cut & paste, copy, fold, address,
stamp and mail. With the advent of the internet, the Snowjob has gone the way of many
great newspapers around the country. Which is to say it has not been published and
mailed in some time. All information about the club, our trips and activities are now only
found on line in this website. The good news is that all the pictures are in color and the
information is more up to date. Click on the link below to view an edited addition of an
old Snowjob. If you still have an old copy, send me a pdf version of a classic Snowjob
and I'll add it to the list.

we can discuss how you can help.
Trip Leaders - KSC is a club run by volunteers, and one of these are the Trip
Leaders. A Trip Leader takes over responsibility for the trip from our VP of Trips about
two weeks before the trip. The Trip Leader's responsibilities include notifying all trip
participants of their room and duty assignments. Taking the 'blue boxes' and the
breakfast groceries to the condo. Organizing the dinner either by caterer or by preparing
the meal yourself (everyone prefers this method). And basically making sure everything
runs smoothly. For taking on this responsibility you get to go on the trip for a reduced
cost and get the Master Bedroom. In September, call the VP of Trips to sign up to be a
Next Seasons Trips - In August the VP of Trips establishes the dates for the

served to sign up for the season. For 2018 there will be three mid-week trips to
Mammoth. Please contact the VP of Trips if you have any questions about next
KSC Tri Fold- This handy piece of paper is used to tell newcomers about the
