Frequently Asked Questions about the SSC
How do I join you for an event?
To join us in Vermont you'll need to make a reservation for the weekend. Meetings in NY are open to everyone, just see the calendar for details on times and dates
How do I make a reservation for a weekend and what does it cost?
Check our reservations page. All the information you need to attend a weekend is there. Who to call, what to bring, how much will it cost, etc.
How do I become a member?
Membership in the SSC is by a vote of the members. We ask that you join us for two meetings in New York City and two weekends at our lodge in Vermont over the course of two consecutive years.
Do I have to be an expert skier?
Not at all. Our members include skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities, beginner to advanced. You're sure to find someone to ski or board with who matches your ability. We have lots of cross-country skiers also and even an occasional telemarker.
What about other, non-skiing events? How can I attend?
For other events the procedure depends on the event. If the calendar lists a reservationist, please call that number during early evening hours for details, or email us at
I'm not Swiss, does that matter?
The club prides itself on its international membership. We have members from Europe, Asia, Latin America, Canada, the Middle East and even the unknown lands of the New York City suburbs. (Throughout New Jersey, Long Island, Westchester, Connecticut and beyond).
Do you have summer activities?
Sure do. We have social and recreational activities in New York city, the NYC area, and in Vermont, spring, summer and fall. Check our Events Calendar to see what we're doing in any season.
