Who We Are

Club Crabtowne is the premier Annapolis ski, sports, and events club, that has been organizing exciting events for our members for over forty years. Founded in 1971 as the "Annapolis Ski Club", we have also been known as the "Crabtowne Ski Club™" and the "Crabtowne Skiers™".

What We Do

Crabtowne year-round events span a wide range of interests. We are 'not just a ski club' we organize a variety of interesting events. Crabtowne has a long history of doing pretty much anything our members think will be fun: past events have included the areas listed above as well as golf, tennis, volleyball, touring as a group in various parts of the world, white water rafting, canoeing, hang gliding, flying sailplanes, hot air ballooning, and attending barnstorming air shows. If you think there is something fun (and reasonably legal) that the club could do, talk to a Board member or a committee chairperson to get the ball rolling. Bring us your ideas... let's start new traditions or reinvigorate old ones.
