SSC is always welcoming new members. We strongly encourage attending one of our meetings to get information about joining. Our membership is limited to 60 people. Our dues are $50 a year for singles and $90 a year for families with children under 18. Our members have lodging priority and pay the lowest rates for food and lodge visits. Guests of members are welcome and pay guest rates for food and lodging, which are still quite reasonable.
Members of other New Jersey Ski & Snowboard Council clubs (NJSSC.org) are able to stay at our lodge at guest rates upon approval of our Membership committee. Members of other clubs must show a NJ ski club card with a current NJSSC sticker on the back to our lodging chairperson.
Please contact our Membership Director, Jerry Ford for information about joining our club, attending an online membership meeting, or getting a membership application.
