Biggest Club on Campus Outdoors Since 1919 Lots to Do
The Wisconsin Hoofers is the largest student organization at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. We have over 2,500 members comprised of students, faculty, staff, and community members. The Wisconsin Hoofers started in 1919 when the Hoofers came together to construct the first wooden ski jump on Muir Knoll. Over the last century the Wisconsin Hoofers have brought on many more clubs and have a wide variety of outdoor activities. From sailing on lake Mendota to Skiing in Jackson hole, Hoofers offers the ability for you to learn many outdoor skills and partake in many different activites.

Danny Supernaw

SnS President

Alo! Former Yellowstone Junior Ranger turned SNS President Danny Supernaw here, catch me in the winter on any descending surface trying to calculate how much send is too much send. Follow me on instagram because I'm basically a picasso behind my camera lens. I currently am studying economics and legal studies with the hopes of going into Environmental litigation and lobbying efforts so the snow can keep falling! I've been lucky enough to be able to go 'splorin in the National Parks long before I knew what a National Park really was. I love nothing more than Montana and bear country, the mountains are insane and at night the stars light up the sky like you would never believe. Take a trip up to Whitefish and Glacier sometime and you'll see what I mean:)
