Hey guys and girls of Newschoolers! We are Schussmeisters Ski Club based out of the University at Buffalo and Iím here to tell you a little bit about who we are!
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. Currently, Schuss is directed by 6 UB students: Kareem Tawil, Stephan Olson, Justin Leanza, Austin Maciok, Greg Bluemel, and Marissa Mingarelli.
Each year our goal is to give western NY college students and their families an awesome and inexpensive ski experience. Our passes work at 5 local hills: Holiday Valley, Kissing Bridge, Peak ní Peak, Buffalo Ski Club, and Swain. We offer free bussing 4 times a week as well(2 nights to Holiday Valley and 2 nights to Kissing Bridge).
On top of our pass we offer a series of events before and during the season. Some past events include the Inspired Ski Movie Tour with guests Henrik Harlaut and Phil Casabon, our annual Fifth Season Rail Jam, Ski Mechanics, Learn to Ski, and Winterfest/Schuss Snow Day!
