I'm late to skiing, started a few years ago at 45 and I am safely hooked! I find though that I ski alone half the time since my family doesn't hold my passion. So, I thought joining a ski club with a house would be a good option.

I ski Windham, Bellayre, Hunter, but my favorite is Mount Snow (never did any other Vt slopes).

Anyone have a line on clubs that fit my generally newbie-affable-middling aged profile?

A good organization to try to find a club through would be the National Ski Council Federation. It's the national organization for many ski councils which are made up of ski clubs. The website is at www.skifederation.org and there is a page for councils in the East at www.skifederation.org/east.html. I'm a member of a club in the Eastern Inter-Club Ski League who's clubs have houses in the Mt. Washington Valley area. We're a bit more organized than some other councils in our club events, but there are councils in CT and NY with individual clubs that have houses in VT.

i have no affiliation but Sterling Ski Club ( out of stratford CT) has a house in West Brattleboro, VT (and one @ sugarbush north). not sure if that is close enough to MT Snow for you.

Worcester ski club. They have a nice house a few miles down the road from mt snow. $50 to join for a single person then pay $20 per night to stay.

Indeed they have. I am a member and have been helping them totally gut and rebuild the inside. It's enormous. I will be there Saturday if you want a look-see. Their Mt. Ellen house ain't nothing to sneeze at either.

is that a switch for you? for some reason i thought you belonged to (ran?) a club out of MA ???

15 min. from Pico & 25 to K. Sits on 22 acres right on the main road in the middle of town. Allows me just enough time to sip my Green Mt. hazel nut coffee on the drive.

Mount snow is nice for Catskills try one hill in Roxbry after snow. Also try north vermont places to little father travel but twice snow average and bigger bills with less people.

I belong to two clubs now. Saves me mega bucks and gives me places to crash both in VT and NH. Not an uncommon strategy for wanderers such as I. And no, I don't plan to ski Mt. Slow too much.
