San Diego LGBT ski club is active even in the summer

SAN DIEGO -- For some, it is easy to forget the world offers an infinite number of playgrounds beyond the borders of 92103. Yes, Uptown has many charms, but sometimes you may find yourself craving a type of adventure that cannot be satiated by visiting the latest restaurant or wine bar. This is where the Men’s Ski and Snowboard Club comes in.

The club, more commonly referred to as SAGA, has chapters located throughout California. And although the name implies it is exclusive to men who love winter sports, that assumption barely scratches the surface.

SAGA Ski Trip Chair Russ Fox said not only does the club host events throughout the year, they also welcome people of all LGBT walks of life to join in on the fun.

Since joining the club 18 years ago, Fox’s role in the organization has expanded. He has emerged as a “go-to-gay” when it comes to planning winter escapes for SAGA. The group has traveled to Jackson Hole, Wyo., Telluride and Aspen, Colo. and Whistler, British Columbia.
