ABOUT US / CLUB ORGANIZATION / INTRODUCTION TO THE PSC

The Pittsburgh Ski Club, established in 1937 as a non–profit organization to encourage skiing, is run entirely by volunteers. Today, 80 years later, the PSC continues to promote skiing and snowboarding as well as offering year–round activities for its members – all of which are organized and run by Club members.


The PSC is governed by its Board of Directors, which consists of an Executive Committee comprised of six elected officers and the past president as well as members of its Program, Publicity, Travel, and various Standing Committees (Membership, Hospitality, Instruction and Racing). The Board of Directors meet once a month to handle Club business. The election of officers is held in the spring at the last social meeting of the year. The elected officers for the June 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018 Club year are:


  • President – Marlene Czarnecki [Email]
  • Vice President of Travel – Mike Baker [Email]
  • Vice President of Program – Helene Czarnecki-Schaukowitch [Email]
  • Vice President of Publicity – Claudia Straub [Email]
  • Secretary – Jan Wisniewski [Email]
  • Treasurer – Jim Gallagher [Email]
  • Past President – Debbie Zamberry

OUR MEMBERS ARE WHAT MAKE THE CLUB. A great way to meet members and create new friendships is by volunteering your time.
