The Boeing Employees Ski Club, SKIBACS, was founded in the winter of 1951 by several avid skiers eager to meet and pool resources with other Boeing employees interested in skiing. In 1956, a constitution and set of By-laws were drafted and approved by the membership and the Boeing Recreation unit. As the Club increased in membership, a plan for a Club owned lodge was developed and approved. This plan to own real estate, prompted the filing of Articles of incorporation.
In the beginning, activities were primarily social and included trips to nearby ski areas. Over the years the Club has continually added value for its members by starting its own ski school, building a lodge at Crystal Mountain, expanding the selection of trips, and adding social functions. If you love to ski or snowboard or would like to try, SKIBACS offers the most affordable opportunities in the region.
The Boeing SKIBACS Ski Club offers a broad spectrum of activities throughout the year. During the regular ski season, members can take ski or snowboarding lessons at Summit Central on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. SKIBACS also has a 72-bed lodge at Crystal Mountain with low rental rates. Ski trips are offered to a variety of the top ski and snowboarding destinations, both in the United States and abroad.
