We are a non-profit, member run, Sports and Adventure Club operating in Houston, Texas for 50+ years.  We offer 8 - 12 winter and summer trips per year, all over the world.

Our social, sports, cultural, and charitable events fill the calendar year-round. From September to May we have fun monthly general meetings normally held the 2nd Monday of the month.  Happy Hours are the 4th Thursday of each month, year-round.

Popular local Houston Area activities this year were monthly dance lessons, monthly dinner gatherings, theater outings, and winery/brewery tours.  Activities are run by volunteers, if there is something you are interested in doing, make a suggestion and we will consider offering it.

Initial trip sales generally start in August and sell briskly, so act quickly to avoid landing on a wait-list.  Trip participation requires membership but it is only $40 for an Individual for an entire season.  Have a look around and we hope you decide to Join Us.  If you need some more time to decide, Click "Add Me to your Mailing List" (Top Left Corner)

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT BEVERLY ROBERTS


Happy New Year Space City Ski Club!!

2021 has arrived, and most of us are delighted to have 2020 in the rear-view. This new year begins with hope for new beginnings, and the leadership at Space City is looking forward with optimism and enthusiasm. In February we are carefully restarting activities. A group dinner and several in-person activities are on the calendar. Bil Cuzack hosts virtual happy hours twice a month, and we continue to assess conditions and locations that will allow in-person happy hours to be safely resumed. We will use participation numbers, membership feedback, and local Covid directives to help us plan future club activities.

As you know, Colorado Covid restrictions forced us to postpone or cancel our ski trips to Snowmass and Breckenridge, but there are still trips to Wyoming and Utah ready to roll. For the adventure trips to Greece, Zion and New Zealand scheduled later in the year, we continue to watch the state and international guidance. Conditions and rules change quickly, so it is very important that you check the website often and read the weekly eBlasts for the latest on both activities and travel.

I’m double crossing fingers and toes that vaccines and other treatments will  lead us to conditions that feel sort of like what used to be ‘normal’. Better days are near. Hoping to see you soon!

Beverly President

In Remembrance

Debbie Moser, one of our members and good friend passed away Thursday morning April 1 after a long hard battle with stomach cancer.

A lot of you met Debbie either on one of her many ski trips or summer trips.  She helped Lynn with a lot of the activities for several years.  Debbie was always willing to help with anything with a beautiful smile on her face.  She will really be missed by all that loved her.

There is not going to be a funeral, only a small gathering of family and close friends to celebrate her life.


Below is a message from her children.


With great sorrow, we announce the passing of Debbie Moser. Debbie fought a tough battle with stomach cancer over the last year, and passed away in her home early Thursday morning on April 1st, 2021. Debbie felt very blessed to spend her last year and weeks with her children, enjoying her beautiful garden, and cuddling with her furry friends - her favorite things in her life. 

 

Debbie’s friendships with everyone in the ski club was a very special part of her life. We know that she will be greatly missed by many, and we have so appreciated the support, love, and kindness you all have shown our family throughout this last year. 

 

One of Debbie’s lifelong loves was animals - all of her pets and grand-pets have brought her so much joy all throughout her life, and her compassion for animals was one of the many things you could love about her. To remember Debbie, please consider making a donation to the Houston SPCA in honor of Debbie.
