2018 Summer Picnic
It’s summertime! Mark your calendars for SSC‘s annual picnic which will be held at a new location this year: Tall Cedars, Cedars Grove, 8143 Old Jonestown Road, Harrisburg. Our Summer Picnic is always a time to enjoy great food and to connect with both old and new friends. The event will be your opportunity to explore SSC’s[masked] proposed calendar of events, offer suggestions of dates and/or junkets and make your reservations for 2019 trips. Meet the trip leaders, ask questions and discover other individuals joining in the excursions. Trip applications for our 2019 winter trips and deposits will be accepted at the picnic after Noon. Applications with deposits must either be hand-delivered to the trip leader at the picnic or postmarked June 23 thru June 30, 2018. All applications meeting these criteria will have equivalent eligibility in case a trip is over-subscribed and a lottery is necessary. Memberships must be current on the date of the picnic to be eligible for trip signups (you can join or renew at the picnic registration table). SSC will provide the entree, beverages, condiments and paper products. To add to the feast, please bring a dish to share according to the first letter of your last name: A thru H – bring a casserole or side dish; I thru N – bring a dessert; and O thru Z – bring an appetizer. If you don’t bring a dish, you will be asked to pay $8 extra per membership at check in. Please make your reservation early for the picnic to ensure we have time to plan and purchase enough food and beverages for everyone. Early Bird price for SSC members through June 16 is $15/pp for ages 12 & over; $10 for ages 8-11; and free under age 8. Effective June 17, all prices increase by $5/pp. Payment can be made via our website on this page, or mail your check now, before you forget, payable to “SSC” (write "picnic" in the memo) to Picnic Chair Barb Collier, PO Box 603, Hummelstown, PA 17036. If you are paying for multiple attendees, please include their names and ages in case they qualify for free or youth admission. We always need lots of volunteers to run this event, so please share a half hour of your time at the picnic. Please contact Barb at[masked] or [masked] if you are able to help.

    What we're about

    SSC promotes skiing, snowboarding and the general love of winter snow sports through a great variety of winter trips, lessons, group discounts and membership meetings (monthly from September to April). Throughout the rest of the year, we also have lots of fun with social activities like bike riding, kayaking, picnics and parties, golfing and more! We are partnered with Roundtop Mountain to offer a comprehensive ski and snowboard program to enhance our skills on the snow, and we also enjoy discount tickets to other mountains through our affiliation with the Eastern PA Ski Council. We enjoy a great relationship with our local ski shops, as their representatives often provide programs at several meetings each year.

    We welcome members of all ages who get excited about winter and life in general. Instead of complaining about the cold weather, SSC members are out skiing and boarding, some locally, some out west, some in Canada, and yes, some in Europe! If you are looking for some new friends to ski or ride with, or looking for new destinations and throughout the United States and Canada, you have found the right club.

    Our club was incorporated 52 years ago and we have been cel, ebrating the past year in a big way! We encourage anyone visiting this site to get to know us and other skiers/boarders in the area by attending our monthly membership meetings (free to guests) and get to know other outdoor friends. As Meetup Members, please feel free to post your own winter get-togethers on this site as well.

    Our SSC 2017 winter ski trips went on sale in June: Big Sky, Montanna; Jay Peak, Vermont; Lake Placid, New York; St. Anton, Austria; Vail, Colorado; and Whitefish, Montanna. You must be a dues-paying member of SSC ($25 single or $35 family/household) to travel with us on trips.

    Please go to our website for complete details on these trips:
