The first iteration of the Juneau Ski Club was formed in 1935 after an avid group of hikers who called themselves the Juneau Hiking Club starting carrying skis on their weekly adventures and skied down from their hikes. These early pioneers were responsible for getting Juneau skiers the first portable rope tow in 1932 and then a “heavy duty” rope town in 1945 which was set up in the lower 2nd Cabin area where crowds of onlookers would join together to watch the skiers and ski jumpers.
A true testament to the club that was formed way back in 1935 is that we have many alumni return to the program as adults and volunteer their time and talents coaching, time-keeping, and doing whatever it takes to keep the Juneau Ski Club going.
