We are active in the following disciplines:

  • Mountain touring on tele, alpine kit and boards
  • Piste skiing and boarding
  • Nordic skiing on tracks
  • Steep skiing
  • All other types of skiing both on and off piste!
  • Winter Camping (Igloo a specialty - click here)

There are many benefits of club membership. Some of these are, in no order:

A vibrant community of like minded enthusiasts. Our club Programme is full of ambitious and varied trips and we often get the most out of the weather.

Using club funds, we subsidise trips to various places and to events such as films.
Discounts at shops in Inverness and further afield. See Member Benefits.  
Access to club trips.
Discount on season passes at the ski centres
The warm feeling you get when you are part of something vibrant, knowing you are supporting skiing in Scotland and leaving a lasting legacy for others.

We would like to welcome those not previously in a ski club and split boarders, piste skiers, telemarkers, alpine tourers and so on are all welcome.

Please note that IBSC does not provide guided trips and each participant is responsible for their own safety. That said, we pool our resources and look out for others. The point is, we all look after ourselves and others, learn from each other without taking formal responsibility for others' safety.
