EUS Ski Trip is the hottest event of the year. The trip usually takes place over the 3rd weekend in January. 50+ McGill Engineers hop on a coach bus and travel to Mount Saint Anne for 2 days and 2 nights of gnar skiing, snowboarding and fun party times. The EUS Ski Trip is a great opportunity to shred some pow and chill with new or old friends. The event is always a hit and sells out so make sure you buy your ticket early!


The Ski Trip Committee is a team of typically 4-5 individuals who are responsible for advertising, selling tickets, and organizing all aspects of the trip in collaboration with Gord, a retired McGill Engineering Alumni. They usually hold one Blues Pub per school year with one or more other committees, all proceeds of which go directly to that year's Ski Trip. The governing bylaws of the committee can be found here


The first EUS Ski Trip was held in 2001. An annual trip has been held every year since then making the 2020 trip the 20th Annual Trip.

In December 2015, the cabin the EUS Ski Trip typically went to burned down, to be clear, we didn't burn it down. Thus a new cabin was born with special locations like the lab and a mystical hot tub.
