    Hello,
    You are correct but so would be two others not on your list:
    I am going skiing next week.
    I am going snowboarding.
    (Neither have 'to' in them).
    I am going to skiing/snowboarding might be used informally if it were understood that it concerned skiing/snowboarding lessons(only then).
