Welcome to the 

Washington, D.C.
Fagowees

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 Houlihan's located in the Springfield Hilton in Springfield, VA across from the Springfield Town Center.  You do not have to be a member to attend the meetings. Upcoming meetings are listed on the meetings page.

Membership Has Benefits

ATTENTION FAGOWEES: A Message from President John McIntire 

Current Cancellations:  Unfortunately, due to COVID, we are still limited in our offerings.  Those that are on the calendar are all outdoor activities which should help in limiting exposure. However, I still implore everyone to be respectful and do your best to protect your fellow tribe members by keeping your distance or wearing masks when social distancing is not possible. 

COVID Safety: We are being has cautious has we can as we continue to offer club activities through the summer.  As part of that caution, we are going to start temperature checks at all events.  Please do your part and use masks when indoors, practice social distancing and if you are not 100% well, STAY HOME.  

Meetings: We will continue using Zoom for our  August membership meeting and board meeting. We are able to handle all normal meeting business and still allow time for everyone to chat and catch up with each other.  We will conduct our August 4th general membership meeting via Zoom.  We will open the meeting at 7:00pm to allow for chatting and any technical difficulty. We will conduct the "official" meeting at 7:30pm.  Feel free  to join in at any time. Be sure to follow us on social media to get the latest updates.
