    Come join the Schenectady Winter Sports Club, one of the oldest ski clubs in the country, for a ski adventure, January 20 - 27, 2024, at Telluride.

    Escape to the breathtaking mountains of Telluride and experience an unforgettable winter adventure. This ski trip offers everything you need for an incredible vacation, from world-class skiing to great  accommodations. We will stay at the Camel’s Garden, in old town Telluride. This is directly across the street from the mountain gondola. Old Town Telluride combines the essence of old and new in a quaint western town.

Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner, there is a run for everyone here. You can explore the legendary Gold Hill Chutes or take in the stunning views from the top of Palmyra Peak, all while enjoying the pristine snow and sunshine.

    Who Was E.H. Hull?    

    What we do know is that he was the SWC's second president, there is a building at GE-Schenectady named after him, and he was a meticulous ski trail map maker and an award winning photographer. The SWC inherited a box  of 60+ plus large format Black and White photos. Here are a few of interest that show the 1930's skiers knew a few things about skiing. Most are Rotterdam Hills, Gore Mountain and Tuckerman's Ravine. The full series will be posted to the SWC website. If you find out anything about E.H Hull, please let us know.

    Recent press releases seemed to be saying that the Warren Miller film would not be produced this year. Outside Inc. will be producing the film and SWC has a contract to show it this fall and the followup in 2024. The following is an article in the March Skiing History Magazine.

    After five years working on upgrades to the house and reservation system, Ellen is looking for a replacement. This year, that would include receiving notifications of reservations, making sure the person is a member and that they paid for the reservation.  It is all done from the comfort of your home.  All you need is an email account and access to our website.

    If interested contact Ellen.  You can find her contact information here.

    We met with a cleaner on New Years weekend, and they gave us a quote of $338 per cleaning. Obviously, this is way out of our budget (unless you want to pay a $15 cleaning fee each stay). So that means it is still up to all of us to keep the place clean. We will pay a member $100 to do a thorough cleaning (maximum of four hours), and you stay one night for free. You don't have to clean the whole place all at once, you can break that up and enjoy part of the day. We can afford to do this about every three weeks. The cleaning schedule will be on the Clubhouse webpage. Check for a date that works for you.
