The Short Hills Ski Club was founded in 1953 in Short Hills NJ; we currently have our club meetings at the Elk’s Lodge in Summit NJ. The Ski Club is a member of the NJ Ski and Snowboard Council. The Club owns a Lodge on 160+ acres of property nestled in the beautiful Vermont Mountains. Our 1890’s farmhouse has been renovated and added onto over the years to now house 46 members. It is located in the Route 100 Valley and is easy driving distance to Sugarbush, Killington, Mad River Glen, Stowe, Okemo and Middlebury Snow Bowl.
We are first and foremost a Ski and Snowboarding club but we also offer many activities throughout the year when there is no snow. Other activities include biking, hiking, golfing, pig roasts, July 4th parades and fireworks, fall foliage trips, night’s outs at local bars and restaurants and much more. The White River flows behind the house which encourages swimming and tubing.
Each weekend during the winter season the Short Hills Ski Club offers members and their guests two nights lodging, two wonderfully prepared breakfasts and Saturday night dinner prepared by our wonderful chef.
There's nothing better than returning from a great day of skiing or other outdoor activities to relax in front of a warm fire with hors d’oervres and the smells of dinner being prepared for you. After dinner the guests can visit local entertainment venues, try out our game room, or just enjoy each other's company around a bon fire in the backyard. The Lodge is always available mid week too for those who want to spend a few extra days before or after the weekend. Click Here for our weekend and weekday rates.
Benefits of membership include access to deep discount lift tickets at a variety of ski resorts, discounts at local ski shops, access to our Lodge in Vermont, special small group skiing and boarding instruction, trips to western resorts, membership in the NJ Ski and Snowboard Council and building friendships that will last a lifetime.
Members can also participate in our racing team which races weekly at Hidden Valley, and in competitions organized by the New Jersey Ski and Snowboard Council in New Jersey, New York and Vermont.
Between our weekends in Vermont, we meet on Tuesday nights in Summit NJ. Members gather both before and after the meeting to socialize. We also sponsor dinner parties in conjunction with these meetings to celebrate various holiday’s such as Christmas / Chanukah, Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, among others.
