The Winter Sports Club is one of the oldest subclubs of the DOC, and has changed more over the years than many of the other subclubs. These days, Winter Sports Club is the home to mountaineering, with a yearly attempt at Mt. Katahdin, ME every January, and backcountry, tele and AT skiing, with the DOC Backcountry account. If you are a student looking for more information, or want to get on the BC ski list, please blitz "hypothermia".

Any WSC trips that go out, or any WSC members gone skiing or climbing should feel free to post trip reports here. To figure out how to post a trip report, contact the current WSC chairs at hypothermia@dartmouth.edu. Trip reports can help others plan future trips... get a feeling for conditions, hear about new terrain, and get stoked about getting out! Below is a link to a sample trip report.
