Ski Club of Manchester Newsletter

Our primary means of communicating with our members is the Newsletter which contains reports by members on recent Club events, activities and holidays along with details of forthcoming ones. We also run a "Newsflash" mailing list — details here.

We normally produce 8 newsletters per year, one every month over the winter season and one every two months over the summer.

Members are encouraged to contribute articles and if you would like to do so please contact the editor, Christine Fildes.


The newsletter is provided as a PDF file by email. We use a mailing list application running on the web server for the PDF distribution. Members can un subscribe, re-subscribe or change their subscribed email address and other settings here.


Many of the newletter articles are archived on this site and the most recent are listed below. Click on one of the "Articles and back issues" date links in the Newsletter navigation dropdown or use the search facility at the top of the page to find older articles. Complete back issues are available for members by clicking the 'get pdf' link next to the date.
