The Schenectady Winter Sports Club was founded in 1929 for the purpose of promoting outdoor winter activities for community members. They were integral in petitioning for the first ski trains into the Adirondacks that began running in 1934. In addition to arranging ski trips, they hosted guest lecturers, demonstrations, and films including the annual Warren Miller ski movie. In 1962 the Club purchased a ski lodge approximately 13 miles south of Stowe, Vermont which it has maintained and operated since.

This collection contains records for the years 1929 to 2002, although the club continues to be active to date. The records consist largely of newsletters, meeting minutes, membership lists, and financial reports but also include photographs and correspondence. Folders remain in original order with original titles.
