National Brotherhood of Skiers (NBS)

The National Brotherhood of Skiers (NBS) has a mission to identify, develop, and support athletes of color who will win international and Olympic winter sports competitions representing the United States. Our goal is to have broader ethnic representation on the US Olympic winter sports teams. To that end, we provide encouragement, training, and financial support to develop young skiers and snowboarders who are elite-level competitive athletes.

Ohio Valley Ski Council (OVSC)

The OVSC organizes a series of trips each year that are open to all OVSC clubs. We generally offer two annual North American ski trips, a European trip that combines skiing with touring opportunities, a summer ski trip to take advantage of the snow south of the equator, and a two-month racing program at regional and western resorts.

Cincinnati Ski Club

Don't let the name fool you. Skiing is only part of what we do. During the off season, we participate in many other forms of activity and relaxation. Explore this web site and find out what we have to offer. Or even better, come to one of our social meetings on alternating Wednesdays to meet some of the members and learn all you want to know about our club and its activities. Look for the welcoming committee and they will answer all your questions.
