About Us

Like most clubs in the Mount Washington Valley area of New Hampshire, the Wedeln Ski & Outdoors Club is affiliated with Eastern Inter-Club Ski League (EICSL).

Our Lodge

Our lodge is a historic inn that sleeps 72 people. Located next to state forest land, the lodge has a wraparound porch, fully equipped kitchen, pub-style bar, game area, and large but cozy living room (including a fireplace!). We are well equipped to enjoy four seasons in the Mount Washington Valley.

The 20 bedrooms are single-sex, with each room sleeping three to six people in bunk beds. Guests bring their own bedding and towels.  During busy weekends, we often hire a chef to cater meals. The six individual bathrooms are co-ed.

Our People

We are all ages (seriously! our youngest member is in his early 20s and our oldest member is in his mid-80s). We converge from Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and beyond at our home-away-from home in the woods.  We all share a love of nature, outdoor sports, and socializing. By coming up to Wedeln, we always know we have a friend (or many!) to play with!

Our Organization

We are a self-governing, nonprofit organization that was formed in 1963.
