Welcome to the Newport Ski Club!
We are a “do-it-ourselves” organization that has been providing families and individuals with incredible memories on and off the slopes since 1955. While many things have changed over the years, the founding premise of the club has remained the same: the fellowship of skiers and outdoor lovers, low-cost skiing, operated by our members, and a family orientation. Our club has a strong membership and financial footing and our lodge continues to improve with each passing year. Besides fun winter activities, the club sponsors many other enjoyable social gatherings such as bike rides, boating round-ups, golf events, cookouts, and banquets.
The success of our club is due to the active and enthusiastic participation of its members. With over 150 members, we come from all walks of life – engineers, artists, chefs, attorneys, teachers, electricians, accountants, nurses and scientists; and all ages – from young adults to retirees.
Built in the 60’s, our well-maintained lodge is the culmination of the efforts of many people over a period of years and is a valuable asset. While we have use of the lodge year-round, the ski season is the most popular. Ski weekends at the lodge are truly special – with up to 46 members, their children and guests pitching in to do everything from taking reservations and ordering food to meal preparation, and cleanup. Those lucky enough to ski midweek take advantage of a less-crowded lodge. We have a well-established reservation system and lodge management traditions that help keep the lodge running smoothly.
Besides the superb accommodations, our club members can take advantage of reduced price ski tickets to Okemo and other northern New England mountains, which are made available through our club’s membership in the Connecticut Ski Council (CSC).
Our Club is a non-profit organization incorporated under the laws of Rhode Island and governed by its by-laws and Invitation to Ski. An all-volunteer board oversees club business and property management. We hold monthly membership meetings the second Thursday of each month from September to June.
In a nutshell, the club offers comfortable lodging in a picturesque setting, delicious community meals on weekends during ski season, access to discount lift tickets, an array of social events, and best of all, the opportunity to forge life-long friendships with like-minded people.
We invite you to join us!
