Welcome to Duneland Ski & SOCIAL Club

           Come and Join Us – skiers and non-skiers are all welcome!                               










Join us – we would love to meet you! Make new friends while catching up with old ones too. We have scheduled events and ad hoc meet-ups throughout the year ranging from local, regional and international ski trips to Summer parties, BBQs, Chilli cook outs, monthly dine-around-town, canoeing, camping, concerts, baseball games, social bike rides and ladies night outs. There’s something for everyone!  



A list of our events and monthly newsletters can be found under the ACTIVITIES section of this website. The newsletters are a great source for information on our scheduled ski trips and how to signup for them, potential future ski trips, social activities and other events.  



LogoOur Duneland Ski and Social Club is also an active member of the Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council (CMSC). The CMSC is a not-for-profit organization with over 60 member clubs throughout Chicagoland and neighboring states whose primary goal is to promote and support member clubs in their effort to further their interest in skiing, snowboarding, and year-round social activities.

  • CMSC currently represents 61 clubs with over 7,500 members and is also a member of the National Ski Council Federation 
  • CMSC sponsors European and American ski trips as well as an alpine race season. The Duneland Ski Club actively participates in these and we have a dedicated CMSC liaison role within the club to assist with signup and logistics
  • For more information, please visit the the CMSC Website at https://skicmsc.com or contact us directly – we would be happy to help.       


Each season, we organize ski trips for beginners and intermediate skiers to advanced and expert skiers. Our trips have action packed social calendars and may also include group lesson packages, and we always ensure that you can ski with family, friends, solo or join the fun in club member groups with skiers of your own skill level and experience. 
  • International trips with the CMSC to Canada, Europe and South America
  • Regional trips with our club to Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, New Mexico and California
  • Local trips and weekend getaways to Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.


One of the highlights of our summer calendar is our annual camping and canoeing trip. Well, some of us may be hard core campers while others prefer glamping! Whatever your preferences, this is a fully catered weekend of fun, packed full of social activities and scenic canoeing on the rivers. Whether you have ever camped, glamped or canoed before or not, this is an event not to be missed!



Our wonderful hosts, Cheryl and Joe, throw a spectacular summer pool and BBQ party each year. What’s not to love – beautiful setting by the lake, fabulous pools and manicured gardens, great food and company, and plenty of wine, beer and song! 



On Wednesday evenings throughout the Summer and Fall, we do social bike rides along the Duneland Trail. Afterwards, we grab a bite to eat and re-hydrate! We also participate in the annual Valparaiso night ride. Come join us on a relaxing way to enjoy the mid-week Sun and beautiful outdoors, and keep those vitamin D levels up! 



It’s official – Wednesday is now Winesday. Ladies, ditch your other halves and come join us for an exciting evening of hors d-oeuvres, wine tasting and good old fashioned gossip! The first Wednesday of every month is Ladies Night Out. Treat yourselves – we deserve it, don’t we?   



One of our most well attended social events is our monthly dine-around-town. Bring husbands, wives, notable others, friends and family, and join us each month as we meet at a different restaurant location around Northwest Indiana for an evening of culinary delights, beverages and good company.   



Our annual trip to our own local baseball team, the SouthShore RailCats is always an evening of full of fun, lively banter, exciting baseball and let’s not forget those hotdogs! Get a photo op with our own Rusty the RailCat – did you know he’s in the Mascot Hall of Fame? Go Rusty!  



Who says we are not sophisticated? Each Christmas, we spruce ourselves up and enjoy an evening of the classics care of our own Northwest Indiana Symphony orchestra. What a great way to start off the festive season – not to be missed. A pre-concert early dinner is usually on the cards as well – we don’t like to go hungry!
