Marden’s Club is a ski club formed in 1920s for the enjoyment of “skiing the mountains”, whether that be on the piste, ski-racing or off piste. Originally known as the Grisons Ski Club, the name was changed to Marden’s Club when it was reformed in Klosters in 1929, in memory of Jock Marden, a prominent skier who died climbing in the Andes in 1928.
Still centered in Klosters, Marden’s remains a social ski club with a focus on amateur ski racing and junior training. Marden’s currently has around 500 members with membership of the club open to regular visitors to Klosters who are proposed and seconded by existing members. It organises races both over New Year and at Easter while during the Easter holidays the club also runs a junior race training program for children aged between 7 and 14, who meet the necessary entry requirements. The aspiration of the committee is to provide an exciting winter program of events to cater for the changing requirements of its members and foster a camaraderie and passion for skiing and ski racing.
Mardens members are supporters of The Skiers Trust of Great Britain – sponsors of British skiing talent.
The next Marden’s AGM will take place on Thursday 11th September at 6.30pm in the Hollywood Arms
