Collierville Ski Club

The Ski Freeze was dreamed up 39 years ago on a dare (and winter boredom) from some of the founding members of the River City Ski Club. It was initially held on Kilowatt Lake in North Memphis. Later, it moved to the Wolf River channel between Mud Island and the Cobblestones. Only once did the Ski Freeze not take place exactly on New Year’s Day, when the water had iced over in Wolf River. It was subsequently moved to a private lake in February.

After a few years, the River Ski Club decided to have their crazy antics become a community oriented event and started each year to raise funds for non-profits. In 1988, they chose the Dream Factory of Memphis as their charity of choice and it has remained that way ever since. The Dream Factory of Memphis is a non-profit, 100% volunteer organization that grants dreams to critically and chronically ill children ages three through eighteen. In 2007, the River City Ski Club was closed. Fortunately, the Collierville Ski Club was formed that same year and has been the sponsor and key organizer of this event. Some of the original skiers from 35 years ago are in this club and participate annually in the Ski Freeze.

Over the years, Ski Freeze has raised over $265,000 for the Dream Factory. Each year, the Dream Factory selects a child to receive their dream from the funds raised at this event. The event is open to the public. If you are a skier or not, we invite you to come down and be a part of the day’s activities. Whether you want to cheer on the participants, warm up with a cup of hot chocolate, or bid on some of our great auction items, there is something for everyone to do.

Dream Child
Meet Stacey!
Hi, meet Stacey.

He is a 9 year old from Southaven, MS diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Stacey's dream is to go to Orlando and experience all the theme parks in Central Florida. The proceeds from Ski Freeze 2015 will be used to make Stacey's dream come true!

Stacey is an only child and has a black lab named Chaos. His favorite thing is to go to Moon lake with family and friends. He loves to ride on his uncle's pontoon boat or on his Jet Ski with his dad.

His second favorite thing is probably going to the beach in Destin, FL. He loves watching airplanes, especially the Blue Angels. He likes football (especially the TN Titans), WWE wrestling, River Kings hockey and just about anything that has a lot of action. Stacey is a very social little boy and loves to be in the middle of anything going on.

Plan on joining us New Year's Day at Ski Freeze 2015.
