Our name says Ski Club, but we are year-round activities and adult social club based in the Mid-Hudson Valley of New York. For over 75 years, HVSC has offered ski trips to top resorts throughout the U.S., Europe and Canada, bike trips, scenic hikes, kayaking, sailing, cultural events, rafting, wine tasting parties and happy hours, which we have nicknamed, "Race Training".

Our events allow non-members to meet/participate with members at venues around the local area offering a way to meet new people and develop new friendships, no matter what your age or interests. Our club has approximately 170 members, and we are a good mix of singles and couples with common interests.

The Club offers free ski instruction for beginner and intermediate skiers up to parallel skiing. This free instruction is offered on day trips to local ski areas and on weekend trips to Vermont and Upstate New York.

Through the club's membership in the New Jersey Ski and Snowboard Council (NJSSC), members are able to purchase discount lift tickets for many ski areas in the Northeast.

HVSC meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 7:30 PM  (First Wednesday only May - August) at Umberto's of Mamma Marisa, 2245 South Road, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601. Click for map
