The Washington, DC Fagowees are Dedicated to Having Fun!
The Fagowees offer trips and events year around for skiers and non-skiers who want to make new friends and enjoy the advantages and championship of group travel. While our members enjoy skiing, we really enjoy traveling with like minded folks who just want to have a good time while exploring new places and adventures.
Why the Name Fagowees?
Dutch Mueller, our founder, started the ball rolling in 1966. He was in the business of selling F-U-N at the Hecht Company Ski Shop. He had the opportunity to start his own ski club for "publicity" reasons and after several meetings in local pubs with like minded individuals a ski club was born. In order to standout in the sea of 106 local ski clubs, an unique name had to be found. Dutch had used the Fagowee name back in California for a defunct social club and some suggested the Fagowees return. So Fun And Games On Weekends Especially Skiingwas born.
The club is open to the general public. Anyone 21 years of age and older can join the club.
The club holds monthly meetings, the first Tuesday of every month at local watering hole. You do not have to be a member to attend the meetings. Upcoming meetings are listed on the meetings page.
Membership Has Benefits
Club members also enjoy the benefits of membership in the Blue Ridge Ski Council and the National Ski Council Federation. Our members can participate on ski and other trips "sanctioned" by other BRSC member clubs without having to join other clubs. this gives our members access to a wide range of trips to choose from.
