ABOUT KOPSC

Thank you for checking out the

King of Prussia Ski Club Website

KOPSC is a highly active skiing, snowboarding, recreational and social club for adults aged 21 and over. There are more than 400 current members in our club, even during the current pandemic! The club is managed by a Board of Directors, who, along with numerous committees and other volunteers, work to organize events and activities for every interest. If you are interested in something but don’t see it, bring it up to a Board Member or our Activities Committee Chair, and we’ll see if we can make it happen. We always encourage our members to get involved, and there are lots of opportunities to do so. Our Ski Trip Planning Committee works to plan our ski trips to Western, Eastern, and an occasional European destination. Our Skimeisters plan some fun local skiing days known as Mental Health Days, and they keep us informed about other interesting ski events and information.

Our General Membership Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month from September through April and are open to the public. They are a great way to meet some new friends, find out about our activities and to get a feel for the club. We expect to resume in-person General Membership Meetings in September 2021. Stay tuned for further details.

Our Happy Hour Committee sets up casual Friday Socials at restaurants/bars in the area. These are open to members and nonmembers and are also a great way to meet new friend and find out about the club. Check out the latest on the Friday Social tab on our website.

KOPSC is not just all about fun. We also believe in giving back to our community. The Snow Angels is our community service committee, which supports local charities such as Philabundance, Laurel House and others. Every year, we do a highway cleanup through the

Adopt-a-Highway program on our section of road in King of Prussia. We also make an effort to support other charitable events throughout the year.

We are currently coordinating some activities virtually, as well as some in-person outdoor activities like hikes and bike rides. You will always find something to do and someone to do it with! Check out the Activities calendar and the News Flurries page on this website for the latest goings-on and activities details.

Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page with more than 680 followers and our Meetup.com group with more than 3,000 followers. (See the links to our social media groups at the bottom of this web page.)

If you become a club member, you will receive a club directory, a membership card that you can use to get all sorts of discounts, and access to our Listserv, which promotes last-minute activities and reminders about club events. As a current member, you will also be eligible for early signup (usually in August) on some of the hottest ski trip destinations we offer for the following year.

So check out the rest of the site. I hope to see you on the slopes, at a general meeting or at an upcoming activity!
