Founded in 1988 by a small group of locals and incorporated as a non-profit social club in 1992, Vail Club 50 (VC50) is a not-for-profit organization promoting social events, sports-oriented and singles activities.
We are an all-voluntee
r group with a 15 member Board of Directors and a talented cadre of Event and Sports Directors and Coordinators and Event Organizers -- all volunteers -- who keep the club and all our activities running smoothly.
Annual membership dues are $50/person -- the membership year is Oct 1st through Sept 30th of the following year. Dues are not
pro-rated; no matter what time of year you initially join, the cost is $50/person. Thus, if you decide to join in August, you will need to renew your membership by paying $50 again before Oct 31st of that same year.
Membership renewal occurs between Sept 1st and Oct 31st each year and all members are sent an electronic reminder to renew. Dues are used primarily to subsidize events thereby keeping event costs lower for members.
Members can invite a nonmember to a VC50 social or singles event, however, the nonmember social/singles event fee will be higher. Members can also invite a nonmember to participate in a VC50 sports event -- one time only. After that the nonmember must join VC50 to participate in any future sport event. Due to popularity, some events are designated as "members only".
Once you join VC50, you have access to the "members-only" side of the website where all events are described in detail and you just "click the button" to register for those events that interest you. Any event that has a cost is paid for online via credit card.
With over 900 members, VC50 is a group of diverse individuals from all over the nation (and world) who now live full or part-time in Vail valley. The club offers members multiple opportunities to meet new people and enjoy an active outdoor life. During 2017-2019, VC50 had 560 social, sport and singles events led by 445 volunteer members.
Membership requirements are simple -- must be ≥ 50 y/o to join. If you are ≥ 50 y/o and your spouse/partner is younger -- no worries, your spouse/partner can also join. Turning 50 this year? Celebrate your 50th all year by joining VC50 anytime during the year.
Are you a tortoise, marmot or hare hiker? Or perhaps a blue, blue/black cruiser or bumper, black or double black skier? Not an alpine skier but an avid snowshoer or backcountry skier? How about a golf or tennis enthusiast? Bridge or Hand and Foot Canasta interest you? VC50 has all the above and more.
With our variety of social and sport events and the variety of skill levels and interests of our members, a good time is had by all.
Just moved to the valley? VC50 is a great way to meet people and volunteering to lead a hike, bike, ski or snowshoe event is how you get to know people better. Not sure about being a leader? Then be a co-leader. We have leader sign-up events at the start of each season.
