Louisville Ski Club
Skiing and a whole lot more since 1956!





The LSC originated in 1956 with a few avid snow skiers whose prime interest was to promote the sport. We offer a variety of winter and snow-ski activities, such as NASTAR-type downhill racing, ski weekends, and Western and European ski trips.


Today, we offer a wide range of other year-round social activities, such as Friday Night Happy Hours, boating, camping, scuba diving, whitewater rafting, wine tasting, hiking, house boating, event parties, and organized co-ed leagues for volleyball, softball and bowling. We are a member of the Ohio Valley Ski Council, and support Special Olympics KY.

 "I've been in the Louisville Ski Club about 10 years. I was looking for a fun group of people to be active with and the Ski Club fits that bill. Hiking, biking, volleyball, softball, bowling, golf, skiing, kayaking...I enjoy them all. The wonderful  part is that these people become true friends that you gather with outside of the club as well! The Friday happy hours around town gives members the opportunity to relax and socialize with friends while checking out new places.  I met Marty in the club after a softball game and so it began.


Outside of the club I basically enjoy the same activities as I do in with the added pleasures of time with my three daughters, their fellas and my three amazing grandkids. Marty and I love to travel and in addition to four LSC skiing trips we have also made 9 trips out west to camp, snowshoe, ski, hike, fish, kayak and explore the National Parks (Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, Arches, Yellowstone, Rocky Mountains, Glacier, Theodore Roosevelt, Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, a trip to Niagara Falls, trips to Florida, a trip to Russia and last summer a trip of a lifetime with the Ohio Valley Ski Club to South Africa. Last February we got to learn about, photograph, learn about and track the wolf packs of Yellowstone. Marty and I share a love of the outdoors, animals and photography and so traveling just comes naturally into play. 


I always appreciated when others ran activities in the Ski Club but when I took the plunge with volleyball and Betty at my side I discovered how much volunteers play a part in keeping the club alive and fresh. It takes a lot of people to keep the club running smoothly and I encourage everyone to try running or co-running an activity. Take over an activity you enjoy of start something new. Encourage friends and new people to join. The Ski Club is what we make it. I appreciate the nomination for member of the month but there are so many people that do so much more to make the club what it is! 


I was a Special Education teacher back in the day and it was then that I developed a lifelong love of working with children,  volunteering/community service, and crafts. I always loved exploring, new adventures and the outdoors. Marty and I stay very busy between our travels our friends our hobbies our volunteer opportunities and being Grams and Grumps. We are looking forward to him retiring or going part time (possibly next spring) and our big move out west. We will truly miss the club and our friends here when the time comes though."- Cathy Welsh

Don’t know about you, but this snow bunny is ready for some skiing!!!!  Our Winter Ski Trips are open for business and now taking sign-ups!  This ski season we’ll be heading off to Winter Park, Sun Peaks, and Beaver Creek! I know its summertime, but don’t wait to sign up as these trips will fill quickly!!  Remember to renew your club dues if you haven’t already to be eligible for any of our trips, and other upcoming events this year!!


Fall is around the corner and we still have a few spots available on the Gatlinburg weekend trip.  Stay in a mountain cabin, do some hiking, relax in the hot tub, and enjoy some cabin parties! Trip is Sept 22-25th. Sign up online today or contact me, Denise Frye, for more information!


Volunteers are needed to help us plan the upcoming 2017 OVSC Summit in Louisville. Also need helpers to plan, decorate, and run the door for this year’s Christmas Dance in December.  If you are looking to get involved these are great ways to start!!


Remember if you have an idea for an activity or event for our club, please feel free to attend a Board Meeting that meets the last Tuesday of every month or a General Club Meeting on the second Friday each month at the Aero Club. We are always looking for new ideas and volunteers to make things happen!


Yours Truly,
