Club Meetings

Weekly Alpine Club meetings are held every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. in Lindsay Auditorium (Sturm 281).

These meetings serve as an opportunity to connect with club officers and other members while hearing from guest speakers, watching films, winning free stuff and more. The weekly meetings also serve as the pre-trip meeting, which is required for trip attendees for the upcoming weekend’s trips.

Epic Pass

The deadline has passed to purchase an Epic Pass through the Alpine Club for the 2016-2017 academic year.

Alpine Club is your connection on campus to purchase your Epic Pass at the college price each year. In Colorado, resorts include:

  • Arapahoe Basin
  • Beaver Creek
  • Breckenridge
  • Keystone
  • Vail

These are the same resorts our Ski Bus travels to throughout the ski season.

Non-students (including parents) are also eligible to purchase passes through the club at the standard rates.

Only credit cards are accepted and can be purchased at Alpine Club meetings. At the beginning of the academic year, the club will offer additional opportunities on campus to purchase your Epic Pass.

Ski Bus

New for the 2016-17 year, students can take advantage of ski buses throughout the winter. Charter buses will take you from campus up to one of the Epic Pass resorts for a full day of fun. The cost for a seat on the bus is typically between $10-15 and covers your transportation there and back. Students are responsible for their lift ticket, equipment, food and any other expenses. Registration will be online and is first come, first serve.

We recommend that students looking to make multiple trips to the mountains to purchase an Epic Pass through the club to save money.
