TEXAS SKI RANGERS:  About Us

 

The Texas Ski Rangers is a chapter of the Rocky Mountain Region of the National Brotherhood of Skiers, Inc. (NBS). The NBS is a non-profit organization whose primary goal is to identify, select and finance training of a potential Olympic caliber African-American athlete capable of winning a spot on the United States Ski team.

 

The Texas Ski Rangers, Inc. was founded in 1984 to encourage and offer opportunities for African-Americans to participate in winter sports and activities. We are one of five predominately black ski clubs in Texas. As the popularity of skiing among African-Americans has exploded, so has the membership of the Texas Ski Rangers, Inc. as well as other Texas ski clubs. The club also actively strives to provide area youth the opportunity to participate in various winter sports and to further develop their skills and interest to the level of world class competitors. The focus of both the NBS and the TSR is to:

  • Encourage minority participation in winter sports and other seasonal activities.

  • Teach and further develop skills in the sport of skiing for youth and adult members.

  • Provide a comfortable atmosphere for social and recreational interaction among the members, other participants and organizations

 

The Texas Ski Rangers sponsors activities all year with its primary concentration on winter activities and ski trips. The Club is dedicated to enhancing the skills and enjoyment of members involved in the sport. In addition to winter activities, we also have several non-sporting events which include the annual Leather and Lace Dance, fashion shows, family picnics, lake-outings and joint participation in social events with other area organizations, just to name a few.

 

Every season thousands of people try skiing for the first time. Skiing with Texas Ski Rangers makes for a memorable and enjoyable experience. Since many of the trips and activities are jointly planned with other NBS clubs, meeting other skiers from around the country only adds to the experience.
