Welcome to the Pentagon Ski Club!
The Pentagon Ski Club is Dedicated to Skiing
The PSC offers winter sports vacations to resorts around the world for skiers and snowboarders who want the fun, companionship and convenience of group travel. Our members have one thing in common: they like to ski! On any given trip you'll find PSC members waiting for the lifts to open in the morning and on the last lift up at the end of the day before the lifts close down. Although our focus is primarily on skiing, we also offer non-skiing summer vacation trips to Europe and other destinations.
Our members also share another trait: they like to socialize, either on the slopes skiing together or over good food or drink. The PSC doesn't run weekend trips or trips to local resorts. We concentrate on vacation ski trips to destination resorts. Our trips typically run 5-7 days. As a group, we can bargain with travel agents to keep costs reasonable. We normally stay in quality condo or hotel properties located near the slopes with nearby shops and restaurants. You can see the types of resorts we visit by reviewing our Current Trips or Past Trips.
Why the Name Pentagon?
The PSC is based in the Washington, DC area, but we have members from across the U.S. The club was founded in 1966
in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, located in the Pentagon—hence the
name Pentagon Ski Club. The PSC continues to have members that currently serve or have served
in the military, plus many current or former federal civilian employees. However, the club has no official
connection to the Pentagon, the military, or the U.S. government. Many members work in
private industry and have never been in the military or even inside the Pentagon. For more information
about the club, see About Us.
Join The Pentagon Ski Club

Meetings Held on the 1st or 2nd Tuesday of the Month
The club holds monthly meetings, usually on the 1st or 2nd Tuesday of the month, at the Officers Club at Fort Myer, Virginia, not far from the Pentagon. You do not have to be in the military to enter Fort Myer and attend the meetings. Upcoming meetings are listed on the Schedule of Meetings. See Directions to the Pentagon Ski Club Meetings at Fort Myer for driving directions and a map.
