Welcome to the Lexington Ski and Sports Club website. Join a group of individuals who love skiing and snowboarding. Our group provides a great way to socialize with others who share the same passion for winter sports. We welcome all people to come and join us for a meeting to experience the fun discussing the trips offered to resorts in the US and overseas, as well as activities offered right here in Lexington.

Our local activity will be a hike at Raven's Run Nature Sanctuary out to the Kentucky River overlook and back. We will meet at the Raven's Run parking lot by 5:45pm and embark on our hike asap. If you are late, you can join us on the hiking trails, however we all need to be off the trail by 7:30 as the park closes the trails at that time. This hike is a moderate hike out to the overlook taking about 75 to 90 minutes round-trip "depending on your speed".
Our social activity will follow at Jean Farris Winery down the road from the Nature Sanctuary. Our estimated meet up for the social will be 7:45 pm although any members not wishing to hike may start earlier at Jean Farris and reserve some seating for the hiking group.
In case of "inclement weather", we will proceed to the social activity at Jean Farris and begin at 6:00pm. The winery's website indicates that they close the "libations bar" at 9:00. The Libations bar serves more than wine options.
