Killington Ski Club has changed its name to Killington Winter Sports Club.
The change was made to encompass all of the club's programs and activities.
"The goal for the club is to make all programs accessible to all people, especially all children and youth athletes," Gordon Brewster, club president, said. "When kids are asked, ‘What are you doing this weekend?' we want them to say, ‘We'll be at the club.' The club has always had numerous identities like the Alpine Training Center of the Ski Club. We believe the new name is the best way to consolidate these identities into a single name that best reflects all that we offer to our members and the Killington community."
Killington Resort founder Pres Smith and Albert "Monk" Martin conceived of the ski club to promote recreational and competitive skiing at Killington. The club has more than 1,200 members today, including 300 family memberships, from all over the East Coast.
The club's home is at the base of the K-1 Gondola at Killington. Space there houses coaches' offices, competition and event offices, member ski lockers, ski boot storage cubbies, lunch tables, a kitchenette for prepping lunches, a heated deck with outdoor dining tables, a video review room for the competition program, space for social events, and ski tuning benches, and restroom facilities.
