He is currently the Lodge Treasurer and has held several positions within the club during his tenure including: House Chair, Trip Chairperson, Lift Ticket Chairperson, Lodge VP, Board member and Lodge Treasurer.

Since joining SHSC in 2011, Monica has served as Secretary, Party Chairperson, Lift Ticket Chairperson and Appointed Trustee. She is currently serving in the role of Trustee. Although the initial draw to the SHSC was its fabulous lodge in Vermont, an unexpected bonus was the friendships that Monica and her husband have formed with others who share their love of the outdoors. They can often be found hiking, biking, kayaking, and, of course, skiing, with their equally adventurous SHSC friends, and they are most grateful to the club for bringing them all together.
Christmas 1970, when Rich was in seventh grade, his parents started his lifelong love of skiing by signing him and his younger sister up for five weekends of ski lessons at the now defunct Craigmeur Ski Area in Newfoundland, NJ. This was a total surprise as he didn’t know anybody in his family, extended family or Jersey City neighborhood that skied. He is still very thankful that his parents took this bold move.
Over the years Rich was a guest at our lodge when some member friends invited him up, usually for President’s weekend. He decided to join in January 2019. He volunteered to be the Club Historian and was selected as an appointed Trustee in November 2020. Rich was elected a Two-Year Trustee June 2021. He also helps out a lot on our two Facebook pages.
Stratton, Sugarbush and Killington are his favorite mountains. He also enjoys the trips that The New Jersey Ski & Snowboard Council runs.
Rich lives in Vernon NJ with his wife Susan. He has three adult children, Allison, Eric and Rich, and a granddaughter Claire, and is a retired New Jersey career firefighter.

Sharon joined the SHSC eight years ago and has been enjoying going up to our lodge and exploring Vermont ever since.

Since joining the Club Sharon has spent over 100 nights at the lodge, and this year was elected to serve as the Secretary of the Club. When she is not in VT, Sharon likes spending time at the beach, going to concerts and shows, and planning her next travel excursion.

There is just no better place to be than at the lodge of the SHSC!
I began skiing around age 5 and was immediately addicted to the sport. Skiing has always been a passion of mine for both the adventurous and social aspects. Joining the SHSC was the perfect fit for me; skiing during the day and hanging out at night. During the warmer months you’ll find me outdoors doing some kind of activity, but mainly I’ll be found on a soccer field, participating in a triathlon or on a bike. In order to fund my lifestyle, I teach high school math.
