Schussmeisters Ski Club

What We're About

Schussmeisters Ski Club is a student run not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing inexpensive skiing to the University at Buffalo community, as well as all college students in the Western New York area.

Club History

Located at the University at Buffalo, Schussmeisters has been around for more than 50 years. The club got its start as a segment of the Student Association in 1960.

Just a few seasons later, some daring and committed skiers took out a large loan, and in 1972 Schussmeisters became a full-time student run ski club. The students wanted to run the club on their own, and make it into everything they could dream of, and continue to offer the same great skiing services that they always had to the Buffalo community.

Skiers got their turns in and somewhere along the line the "snowboard" was invented. Since then, Schussmeisters has been one of the biggest student-run ski clubs in the United States providing skiiers and boarders with excellent service and trips.

After all these years Schussmeisters still holds to its roots and strives to provide the best skiing and riding experience for all of Western New York.
