About Us

A club that is as much about a good time as skiing. Whether skiing is your way of life or you’ve never seen snow in your life, we’re here to help you split the costs and deliver the best break you could ask for!

Founded in 2019, we have persisted through COVID to organise our signature annual trips to Queenstown, New Zealand — starting with 19 participants and tripling to 66 in 2022. We took nearly 150 people on trips in 2024.

Outside of these trips, UQ Ski has been described by the university as a highlight of student life. Just in 2022, we offered our members 28 diverse and high quality events!

In 2023 we have already sold out the biggest ever international uni ski trips from Queensland, with New Zealand selling out in just 7 minutes and Japan in just 5. In 2024 we have been to New Zealand and Thredbo, and in early 2025 we are heading to France!
