Since 1977, 70 Plus Ski Club members have enjoyed free and discounted skiing, developed lasting friendships, and skied together at resorts worldwide.
When Lou Batori began skiing at the age of ten, skis were boards strapped to your feet and there were no ski lifts. Now, at age 100, he’s still skiing and racing — with no plans to stop. CBS Sunday Morning Correspondent Bill Geist catches up with him at the annual gathering of the 70 Plus ski club in Nubs Nob, Michigan.
70 Plus Ski Club continues to organize trips and events for its 3,000+ members nationwide. A newsletter is published with inspiring stories, and news of interest to senior skiers. The club offers trips to different US ski resorts and international ski destinations that have included Europe, Argentina, Chile, and New Zealand. The club also offers day events with races and other opportunities to meet fellow skiers.
To be eligible for membership you must be at least 70 years old and a downhill skier or snowboarder. Members are welcome to bring younger spouses and friends to most events.
