Probus Ski Legends was started in the Fall of 1997 by a number of ski enthusiasts from the Blue Mountain Probus Club. The original premise was that no one should have to ski alone. Over time Ski Legends has expanded to Probus clubs in Collingwood, Thornbury, Wasaga Beach, Midland, Owen Sound and beyond. Strong relationships have been formed with Skiis and Biikes, Merit Travel and Blue Mountain Resort, who offer promotions and group discounts to members of Ski Legends.
Ski trips are planned each year to destinations such as Colorado, Utah, British Columbia, Quebec, and in recent years, to European destinations. The ski trips for the 2021-22 season will be in Canada related to travel concerns and Covid-19.
A number of social events, to bring members together, are planned each year. They include a Wine and Cheese held at Skiis and Biikes and a Welcome Back Breakfast in early January. Also, ski days at local private clubs are organized each season. One or two days each week of the ski season there is a Ski Legends member at a designated time and location at Blue Mountain where members can meet and ski with other Ski Legends members.
The Ski Legends organizing committee is very active during the year (except during the Summer) and works hard to provide enjoyable activities for members. Members are kept informed of activities through frequent emails. Ski Legends also has a dedicated web site: probusskilegends.ca. You are encouraged to visit the site on a regular basis as it provides the most up-to-date information on all the events, ski days and ski trips, as well as the membership application form. There is a nominal annual membership fee. Registration for the 2021-22 season is open as of May 2021 and remains open for the season.
