Skilaufers (pronounced "she-law-fers") is an outdoor and social activities club.  We ski, bike, hike, canoe and kayak, camp, dance, golf, play cards and more, depending on the season.  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! We also host a “Keen Cuisine” outing to restaurants on the third Wednesday of the month, September through April.  Our monthly meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at the Eastside Club, uniquely situated on the shore of Lake Monona with a beautiful view of downtown Madison. Meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and include dance music provided by live bands at 7:30. This is a safe, social environment in which to enjoy yourself. Beverages are reasonably priced, guys and gals are friendly, and the music is always good.

Skilaufers was organized over 45 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 12 member board of directors to guide us. They plan and execute activities, with input from the members, during the year. Membership rewards you with many things to do with other singles, good music every month, a newsletter, and the fun of TGIFs, skiing, hiking, dancing and more! Membership is $15 or $20; $15 if you are interested in viewing the newsletter here on our website, or as an email attachment instead of receiving a newsletter in the mail.  It is $20 if you are interested in receiving a newsletter in the mail. Both memberships include free admission to General Meetings. 

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