We invite you to join our club!We invite you to join our club!

CASTA is an outdoor snow sports club with emphasis on winter activities and outings.  Our club promotes outings for Capital District residents of all ages and abilities.  Activities are promoted through day outings, weekend bus trips, annual week-long adventures (including foreign travel) at very reasonable group rates. Winter is fun when you are active while enjoying the camaraderie of other people.  We meet monthly October through March and keep in touch the rest of the year through informal group events such as outdoor summer/fall activities.
