Community Outreach


Craigleith Ski Club proudly supports the local community of Collingwood and The Town of Blue Mountains, focusing on charitable organizations that have an impact on our local region. The Board of Directors and Club have choosen the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital and Track 3  to be our designated charities, and in addition we support the Salvation Army at Christmas time. Throughout the winter season the club raises money for each of these chairties by supporting various events through the donation of lift tickets or collecting cash donations from members and guests.  The Club also is pleased to be the location of choice for events hosted by other notable charities including the NZ Foundation and Georgian Triangle Hospice.

Track 3

Craigleith Ski Club is the home to the largest Track 3 program in the province. The Ontario Track 3 is an inclusive volunteer, non-profit charitable organization that teaches children and youth with disabilities to downhill ski and snowboard. The goal of Track 3 is to change lives by enabling their students with the same opporunitis and experiences that are available to other children within their schools, families and communities. In partnership with The Track 3 Association Craigleith hosts a Family and Friends Ski Day to raise funds for the organization. Track 3 also takes part in our Men's Day by being apart of the 50/50 raffle.
