Toronto Gay Ski and Snowboarding Club: We Belong!

Welcome to the official TGSC website!

Come join us on the slopes and in the chalets this winter! Sign-up here!

How many members does TGSC have?

We have members in the club as of today.

Is TGSC only open to men?

Absolutely not! The majority of members are men, but the club is open to all members of the *LGBTTIQQ2SA communities: the term “gay “in our name is meant to be an all inclusive short form.

*LGBTTIQQ2SA is an abbreviation used to represent a broad array of identities such as, but not limited to, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, two-spirited, and allies.

Yes! We have monthly evening socials and dinners. As well, we organize parties and other events throughout the season.

How does TGSC give back to the community?

Each March, the members of TGSC team up with Supporting Our Youth in sponsoring a ski and snowboarding day for queer youth. This important event provides the opportunity for disadvantaged youth to have fun, escape the city and even get some exercise. It also allows young men and women to spend some time with positive role models in our community. This event is fully funded by the membership of the TGSC.
