The Family Ski Meisters Ski Club was formed in the summer of 1968 by a group of ski enthusiasts who were interested in promoting the sport of downhill skiing at a family level. Their goal was to make the sport of skiing affordable for families with children, provide the opportunity for ski education to all club members to produce better skiers, and provide an atmosphere for children to learn the sport of skiing with their peers in similar age groups. The club has over time evolved to provide a year round schedule of family oriented social activities in addition to the family downhill skiing focus.


Club membership is limited to a total of sixty (60) families not including our “Life” members. The profile of our club membership ranges from the original founding members themselves to newly married couples with small children who are just beginning to learn the sport. The club has a number of 2nd generation Ski Meisters with children of their own. A number of single college age young adults are frequent guests at club events under their parents membership. If the club membership is under the 60 family limit, new family memberships will be considered upon written application.

New Membership

Initiation & Fees Application for membership is open to families. (Married couple or single parent/legal guardians with children). When a completed membership application is received by the membership committee, the family will be formally considered for membership. Upon acceptance of the membership committee, the new family will be entitled to all privileges of club membership. Yearly membership is currently $35 per family per year or $20 per individual per year.

Ski trips include:

Day or evening trips to area ski resorts Weekend trips to upstate New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine etc. Full week trips to Europe, Canada or the Western US.

The club also prepares a schedule of events for the non-winter seasons which appeals to the overall membership.

Outdoor concerts, camping / hiking trips, biking outings, kayaking, baseball games, clam bakes, holiday parties and house socials.

Event location and the types of events are continuously evaluated based on feedback from club members with the needs of the club families in mind. Because the club can negotiate event costs on a group basis, substantial discounts are passed on to the club and its membership. Discount rates/cards are passed on to the membership as received.
