What we're about

Public Group

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.
