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.

Debbie Gravatte was elected Member of the Month of June for her hard work and dedication to the club.  She does a fabulous job running the softball league, year after year, as well as running ski trips and various other activities. Thank you Debbie (and Denis) for everything you do. You are very much appreciated!  Here's some info about Debbie in her own words:


"I joined the Louisville Ski Club in August, 1990 with the intent of getting back into snow skiing.  Then found I loved doing all the activities and meeting new friends.  Got active in the sports leagues of volleyball and softball.  Went on and ran boating, camping and ski trips.  Joined the board as treasurer.  Thru the years have enjoyed all the many activities with what has become a great group of ski club friends.  Even started bowling a few years ago.  And most importantly met Denis and we married in 1995.  We’ve raised 3 great sons, Chris, Steven and P.J. Now have 3 wonderful grandsons, ages 2, 4 and 8 thanks to Steven and Tua (Steven’s wife).  We are lucky that all are local except my son P.J. moved to Denver, CO last year. Denis and I now enjoy our home on the river sharing it with our 2 cats.  Spend our time boating on the Ohio or relaxing on our deck in the summer.  Play volleyball year round and softball in the summer.  Still love snow sking and try to go on at least one trip a year. I am a die hard Louisville Cardinal fan.  Love going to Louisville football games.

I am hard pressed to pick a favorite ski club activity.  I would have to say dancing the electric slide at every ski club meeting, dance, party, or après ski event possible, playing softball and snow skiing are my 3 favorite. 

Most memorable is a tough one too.  But I will have to say the infamous bus trips to Seven Springs Ski Resort rank among the most fun and wildest.  The 8 hour bus party on the way up, the après ski there, then the post trip parties can’t be beat.  The Laurel Lake “Miss Laurel Lake” contests were by far the funniest and just plain priceless.

Overall joining the club 26 years ago was one of the best decisions I ever made.  This is a great group of active people (maybe even a few party animals) that has greatly enriched my life.  It has been my pleasure to volunteer thru the years to keep the traditions of good times moving on.  And I am looking forward to many more years of fun and staying active."- Debbie Gravatte

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!!


Be sure to attend the Fan Appreciation Day on July 28th!  Come out to the softball fields, enjoy some free burgers and dogs, cheer on your softball friends, meet other members and make some new friends!  This is a member only event that is always a hit!!


If you are up for playing on the Sand Volleyball League, we still have a few spots open too!  League begins August 1st!  If you are unable to play this time you are always welcome to come hang out at Baxter Jacks, be a fan, grab a beer and meet some new faces.  It’s a great way to get connected!


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,
