Welcome to the 

Washington, D.C.

Ski, Snowboard and Social Club

 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 OWeekends Especially Skiingwas born. 

 Join Us!

  The club is open to the general public.  Anyone 21 years of age and older    can join the club.  

  Monthly Meetings

  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.
