Skilaufers (pronounced "she-law-fers") is an outdoor and social activities club.   Most members are from the Madison area. 

We host weekly TGIF happy hours on Fridays at local restaurants where we meet, eat, and visit – guests are welcome!  Check TGIF tab for details.

Skilaufers was organized over 57 years ago by a group of young, single professionals working in the Madison area. The club is still a singles group, although married people, who may have met at club functions, can and do participate in our activities. Our club has a 8 member board of directors to guide us. They plan and execute activities, with input from the members, during the year. Membership is $15.

We WELCOME new members and invite you to come and meet new people and join in on our fun activities!



​Diane’s Message

Hi folks. Our club is now 57 years old and as a result we are in the process of reorganizing some of our activities. For example, downhill skiing is no longer our priority activity. The TGIF’s still are, however.
This past year we held our regular two holiday picnics, a Christmas party, a bingo party, a pontoon ride in the Madison lakes, a visit to the Dane County Zoo and two hikes.  Currently we have more hikes and monthly slow bike rides in the pipeline.

If you check our calendar, you will see that Mary Ann Fitzsimmons has a pontoon ride planned for July 1st. It will only cost $10.00 so please plan on joining us. As other activities become available, they will be posted on this website and if you have paid you dues and I have your email address, you will get timely notifications online.

Currently we are four board members short, please consider joining us to help expand our club.
