About Utah Freeskier Society
Utah Freeskier Society is all about skiing. Whether this is your 1st ski season or 20th ski season in Utah, we invite you to join Utah Freeskier Society. Our goal: to promote the sport of skiing on campus at the University of Utah.
Utah Freeskier Society was created in 2001 as a student run, non-profit organization. The club is run by 13 University of Utah students. Our club does activities year-round. Starting each fall we invite you to join the club by visiting one of our tables on campus. We are generally outside of the Union Building every Monday through Thursday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM September through mid-November. Throughout the season we host a number of ski movie premiers, in-store shop nights at our sponsors' shops, on-mountain barbecues, a trip to the Olympic water ramps, and a handful of other activities. We also offer the cheapest student season passes to Alta, Snowbird, Park City/Canyons, and Brighton. Club members enjoy discounts to a number of shops around town. Utah Freeskier Society is a great way to meet and network with other skiers, to make this season in Utah the best ski season of your life!
