Membership to the Lake Placid Ski Club is $45 for either families or individuals. Your membership helps us give something back to the kids in our programs.
We find it necessary to charge program fees for each program. The fee varies from program to program. Please look over each program carefully. The Town of North Elba sponsors less than 50% of the funds need to run the Ski Club and its programs. Your membership and our fundraising makes up the rest of what is need to provide quality programs. The Ski Club administers a program at Whiteface and as we mentioned above, monetarily supports the NYSEF Programs. We have also merged with the Lake Placid Biathlon Club
