These local clubs make it fun and easy to enjoy Roanoke’s indoor ice skating rink, miles of cross country skiing along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and even the 13 ski resorts within a half day’s drive of Roanoke. Many of the winter sports clubs meet on a regular schedule and plan group trips throughout the year.
With more than 380 members this club seeks to bring together people from the Roanoke and New River Valleys who are interested in outdoor activities.

The Roanoke Outdoor & Social Group uses the Meetup.com web service to connect members.
