  • The Magic of Skiing

    by Don Lemos

    The Magic of Skiing
    And surely it's there,
    The body in motion,
    The downhill dare.

  • The sensual feeling,

    Of arcing a turn,
    The satisfaction felt,
    The better we learn.
  • And like a newborn babe,

    Marveling at the feat,
    Watching its movement,
    An extraordinary treat.
  • Thus it is so,

    When the forces we tame,
    Require Ultimate Control,
    To Master the Game.
  • And it ends not there,

    Not just with a grin,
    For powerful feelings,
    Are retained within.
  • They reflect in life,

    Conque the Impossible,
    With all our might,
    And let our souls take flight.

"Skiing: the act or sport of gliding on skis" says the dictionary. Sounds a little boring... Join us and we will show you why we look forward to Winter!

"I don't know if it's just me or everyone, but the whole vibe with skiing is not so much thriving on competition against others as it is against myself and the clock. "

You don't need another reason to join the Hamden Ski Club. 

The Hamden Ski Club was formed in 1972 by the existing membership of the Singles Ski Club of New Haven. The Hamden Ski Club, and as the former Singles Ski Club of New Haven, has been a member of the Connecticut Ski Council for over 50 years. The objectives of the club are to promote interest in recreational and competitive skiing and snowboarding, as well as good fellowship among club members. The club is a family and singles oriented all seasons sport club. In addition to downhill skiing and snowboarding, winter activities include alpine racing, cross country skiing & snow shoeing. We have a large spring skiing following and will often ski right up to June (If the ski area's are open). Activities during the non-winter months include water skiing, biking, tennis, canoeing, golfing and camping.
