The Cleveland Metro Ski Council (CMSC) is a network organization of 23 ski clubs reaching thousands of skiers and snowboarders in northern Ohio, western Pennsylvania, and western New York. Managed by enthusiastic volunteers, its mission is to promote the excitement and camaraderie of skiing and snowboarding to everyone – regardless of ability, age, or economic background.
While CMSC member clubs hail from as far west as Sandusky, east to Warren, Youngstown, and Erie PA, and south to Canton, Akron and Wooster, the majority of CMSC clubs are concentrated in the Greater Cleveland area. Year-round social and ski activities of each club are limited only by their members’ imaginations.
Whether a person is married or single, a single parent or married with children, over 21 or over 71, a novice or expert skier, is physically challenged, has an unlimited budget or budget-minded, is active or enjoys being around active people, CMSC has a ski club that will suit anyone’s lifestyle and many fast friends ready to be made.
Formed in 1967 as an Ohio, non-profit corporation, CMSC’s constitution provides for an annual election of officers. Each member ski club sends a delegate to the Council’s meetings. CMSC’s newsletter, the Sitzmark, is published during the winter months. Cleveland Metro Ski Council is a charter member of the National Ski Council Federation, representing over one-third of a million skiers in the U.S.
