The Sunshine Slopers Ski & Travel Club  is a year round social group with a penchant for skiing.

Since its inception in 1989, members of the Sunshine Slopers Ski & Travel Club are an active group of people who enjoy diverse activities. As the first African American ski club established in the State of Florida, we currently have some 250 members which include singles, couples and youth who enjoy skiing and South Florida’s warmth and diversity.

The Sunshine Slopers Ski & Travel Club are also members of the National Brotherhood of Skiers (NBS) and strongly support the NBS mission of identifying, funding and sustaining athletes of color for Olympic and international winter sport competitions. We are also proud members of the Florida Ski Council– one of the largest winter sports-oriented organizations in Florida.

Meetings are being held virtually every third Sunday at 3:00 p.m. on Zoom until further notice. 

We extend the opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about our club to attend one of our meetings, or just come out to one of our local events, meet some of our members and ask questions.
