Current Members

The age diversity of members ranges from the mid-20's to 55+, and most reside in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and eastern Connecticut.   While most of the membership has professional backgrounds, many have worked part-time as ski instructors, ski patrollers, administrative and operational ski area management, etc. This, coupled with years of experience, can provide a wealth of information to the novice or intermediate skier.

Club Activities

In the winter months, the club enjoys skiing, snowboarding, snow-shoeing, and cross-country skiing.  We also enjoy the local ice rinks and a tubing park located within a few miles of the lodge.  During the off-season, activities include hiking, mountain biking & climbing, photography, canoeing, swimming, fishing, golf, and tennis.  In mid-April, we have our annual Pig Roast, and in June, we host a Sports Banquet to reminisce on the year’s activities.  During the summer, we participate in EICSL summer weekend events, which include tubing down the Saco River, golf outings, and kayak/canoe trips on local waterways.   As December rolls in the holiday spirit, we host our annual Senior Citizens Christmas Dinner; our way of giving back to the community.  There are many social activities throughout the year, including inter-club events on weekends during the ski season.

Most of the club activities are held at (or around) the lodge in NH, but some social events are hosted in the Boston area.  Look us up on Meetup and Facebook to hear more about these activities.
