The Schenectady Wintersports Club (SWC) was founded in 1932 to promote outdoor winter activities for those in the New York Capital District.

The Northern New York Paddlers (NNYP) and the Mohawk Valley Hiking Club (MVHC) joined with the SWC creating an organization that promotes activities year round.

Activities include skiing (both alpine and nordic), snowboarding, canoeing, hiking, biking and any other outdoor activity that members wish to organize.

We have nearly 1000 members and welcome all ages, singles and families.


We are members of the


New York Capital District Ski Council
