TRAVEL INFORMATION


The Club offers affordable week–long trips and weekend trips ONLY to members. The majority of the week–long trips offered are SKI trips but other travel trips (such as a yearly trip to Myrtle Beach) are offered as well. As a member of the Western Pennsylvania Ski Council, WPSC trips are also offered to PSC members.

The PSC usually schedules four or five week–long ski trips a year in addition to any WPSC scheduled trips and the destinations have covered the globe — from the US, to Canada, to Europe, to South America, to New Zealand, and to Japan. The weekend ski trips are usually bus trips to New York (Holiday Valley, Holimont, Bristol), Maryland (Wisp), and West Virginia (Snowshoe, Timberline/Canaan Valley).

One of the greatest things about signing up for a PSC travel trip is that someone has already worked out the details and the only decisions you have to make are where you want to go and what to pack.
