Our Club

Lexington Ski Club is a family-oriented club that has been an institution in the Lexington Massachusetts area for over 50 years.  Our members are mostly from Lexington and contiguous towns, but includes families throughout the Greater Metro-Boston area and beyond.  We own a lodge in North Woodstock, New Hampshire that is available to all member families and their guests.  The lodge is open for club use year round, and there are a variety of outdoor activities available for every season.  It is located just south of Franconia Notch and at the end of the Kancamagus Highway, a short distance from Cannon, Loon, Waterville Valley and Bretton Woods ski areas.

We have business and social meetings on the third Tuesday of each month – October to June – in Lexington or a nearby town. Social events in the Lexington area include an Oktoberfest, December holiday party, spring Wine and Cheese party and June Picnic. Families who are interested in skiing and snowboarding, and in participating and being active members of the club are welcome to consider joining.  Members pay an annual fee based on family size that covers unlimited club sleeping accommodations, year round.

The Lodge

The lodge has shared spaces for the member community to socialize and dine together, as well as private accommodations to meet a variety of needs and family sizes. There are twenty-nine bedrooms, nine with private baths, fourteen with semi-private baths, and six that share two community baths on a hallway. Thirteen ‘family rooms’ have a queen sized bed and a bunkbed.  There are also two dorm rooms for male and female teens. Rooms are equipped with blankets, bed pads and pillows.  You bring your own sheets or sleeping bags and towels, all of which can be stored in the attic storage space. We have a toddler play room, a large common living room with stone fireplace and seating areas, a TV room, an après ski refreshment area, a large dining room for family style meals and a newly renovated, industrial kitchen.  We have a good sized attic where members keep lockers for ski wear, etc. and we have a basement with ski tuning equipment, and where skis and boots can be kept when not in residence. more..

A cook prepares meals at the lodge on winter weekends and holiday weeks when there are enough members, currently 20, using the club. Meals are paid for by members in residence.  Members are assigned rotating duties, based on lodge usage, to assist setup and cleanup at breakfast, prepare après ski snacks, and dinner. Everyone is expected to care for the lodge as they would their own home.  To make our shared lodge experience pleasant, we expect members, their children and guests to respect and abide by the lodge rules.

Membership

Club membership is limited to 65 families to ensure that all members are able to get accommodations at the lodge almost whenever they want.   Member’s guests can usually be accommodated at the lodge as well, even during the busy ski season, for a low nightly rate.  Several member families are retired seniors who often ski during the week.

Each member family adult contributes one work weekend at the Lodge to do repairs, upgrades, general maintenance and housekeeping. Six or seven work weekends are scheduled, about monthly, from spring to fall each year. Its a fun time to get to know your fellow club members and often to learn some new skills.

If you are interested in joining, contact our membership chair or fill in the contact information on the ‘Becoming a Member‘ page. We look forward to meeting you!
