Snowseekers Ski and Snowboard Club began as the Waukegan Snow Birds club in 1961, then evolving to the Waukegan Ski Club in 1964, and finally settling on Snowseekers Ski Club in 1982. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, the Snowseekers club participates in other activities including: public service, biking, golf, sightseeing and parties. We sponsor local and mountain ski trips. Singles, couples, and families of all ages and abilities from around the country are welcome. We typically meet at 6:30 with cash bar and meeting begins at 7pm on the second Tuesday of the month at a location to be determined for the 2022/2023 season. Exceptions noted in our newsletter.
