Join the Oakland Ski Club!

Membership in the Oakland Ski Club offers a special opportunity to enjoy the friendship of people with a strong common interest in snow sports, hiking, biking, and other outdoor activities. Members also get together at meetings and special events held throughout the year both at OSC Donner Lodge and in various places in the Bay Area.

Annual New and Prospective Members’ Weekend: October 7th and 8th 2017

This is a social activity hosted by OSC members and attended by current and prospective members.  It is a great way to experience the OSC Donner Lodge, its location and meet other members. Find out all the secrets of operating the Lodge during the winter season!

Most people arrive on Saturday morning and leave on Sunday afternoon.  Activities include hiking, biking (bring your own), pumpkin carving and an Oktoberfest atmosphere.  The lift line talk can be outrageous but we always have a good time.  This will also be the last opportunity to fulfill your work party obligation for 2016.

Simply make a reservation by Wednesday, Oct. 4th.  First come, first served with preference given to new and prospective members that have not been up to the Lodge yet.  Family and Friends are welcome.  Let’s fill the Lodge!

There is no fee for lodging; food costs are shared (no more than $20/day).

Why the Oakland Ski Club?

Great question!  The Oakland Ski Club is unique among all of the Tahoe ski clubs in several ways.


First – Our Location

Perhaps the most important is the OSC Donner Lodge. The lodge was built in the early 1940s and was designed by the same architect who designed Sugar Bowl’s lodge. It is by far the nicest ski club lodge in the Donner Lake area. Also, the lodge provides incredible convenience. We are literally a stone’s throw from Sugar Bowl and only a short drive to the other Tahoe ski areas.

Second – The Food

Another great perk to Oakland Ski Club members is the food. Our onsite caretaker makes amazing meals during the ski-season for members and guests. Hot breakfasts, delicious aprés-ski snacks, and mouth-watering dinners are all included in the price. To check out some of our menus visit the food page.

Our annual New and Prospective member’s Weekend is usually held in late October.
