not a member but i think i've heard good things about this club
I've been trying to find a ski club that is part of the Eastern Inter-Club Ski League that doesn't have high membership rates. Any suggestions? Not looking for accommodation, just the discounts. Any advice appreciated.
There are 2 clubs in EICSL you'd want to contact. Ace Ski & Board and Blitzschnell. There is contact info for both clubs on the website, www.eicsl.org. I'm President of Blitzschnell Ski Club and current VP of EICSL (also trip chair and too many other things).
What is the annual and nightly cost to members for the ski house? What are the sleeping accommodations like? Bunk rooms?
The house cost structure varies wildly from club to club. My club is $440 per year with no nightly cost. Some clubs are more expensive, some are cheaper but charge nightly fees of $5-10.
All clubs have the same guest fee rate of $25/night and offer discounted guest fees of $10-15/night to full members of other clubs with houses. This reciprocal discount does not apply to members of the homeless clubs like Ace and Blitzschnell and does not apply to "associate"-type members.
All clubs also require that you commit 1-2 work weekends per year to maintain the house, or you can buy out a work weekend commitment for $75/day. You should be prepared that occasionally large capital projects may require a special assessment. This is a lot like being part of a condo association. They are rare but eventually happen at most clubs.

My club is $200 dues & maintenance fee, jr. members $10. We charge $24 a night lodging for members, $36 guests. Juniors under age 17 3/4 is 1/2 price. I think the jr. age cut off for guests is younger. If you attend a work weekend you get a free weekend at the house (including dinner). We also have a cook on Sat. night for dinner. Cost is $12 member $18 guest which you have to pay if sleeping in the house whether you decide to go out for dinner or not. Breakfast is included with lodging with the club supplying all the fixings, you just have to cook for yourself. The house has a commercial kitchen. We also have a dishwasher come in. Sleeping accommodations vary from rooms with queen size beds, rooms with 4-5 single beds & a couple of rooms with both single beds & bunks. A couple of the rooms with queen beds also have single beds or bunks (family rooms). Half of the rooms in the house have private bathrooms the other half shared hallway bathrooms. There is a large dining room (seats 70), large living room (with fireplace), a very large party room (with fireplace) & like I already mentioned a commercial kitchen. There is also a boot room for storing gear plus various other open spaces. The house comfortably sleeps 50 people.What is the annual and nightly cost to members for the ski house?
