We joined the Hermitage Club because we wanted a fun, safe, family-friendly ski mountain where we could teach our 2 young girls to ski, improve our telemark skiing, ski with friends, and continue the skiing family tradition that Matt and I both grew up with. The mountain has great terrain, the conditions are always fantastic, the mountain staff knows us by name, and we enjoy quiet, crowd-free skiing everyday. The Hermitage Club has exceeded all of our expectations. We are continually impressed by Jim and his team, and their ability to make the Hermitage Club vision come to life; we are so glad we are a part of it all.

Frankly there isn’t another Ski Club like the Hermitage the Northeast. This is the only one. They have taken a concept that has been highly successful in the golf community for decades and brought to the ski hills. The Private, Member’s only Club. Hermitage has changed everything we have ever come to except as Skiing Norm… No more lift lines, No more over crowded lodges, no more bad cafeteria burgers… It has a four star gourmet New England Country Inn for lunch. It has world class snowmaking. It has also created the member friendly service of a top tier country club. It’s a place where my children feel comfortable and safe. All the instructors and ski ambassadors know them by name. As parents we feel comfortable letting our kids ski the mountain with their friends. It’s a sense of freedom so many kids miss today. But given the truly intimate setting of the Hermitage Club, it is the right environment to let them explore the mountains.

When I heard about the concept at The Hermitage, I was immediately drawn to the idea. No lines, freshly groomed snow, and a community for my family and I to enjoy was exactly what I was looking for. I am a member at a golf and country club here on Long Island, and I joined The Hermitage for the same reasons. I want to know I can get a tee time when I need one, that I won’t have the crowds that the public courses have, and that the course will be cared for. The Hermitage Club provides all of that and more – no lines on weekends and holidays, which is unheard of in the Northeast…and snow that’s groomed all day…unimaginable until I joined The Hermitage. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is I get the same conditions – amazing.

The time that we spend together as a family is the most important thing to us. It's a big investment to pack up every weekend and make the drive, so when we arrive we want it to be worth it. Jim and his team have created that place for us. It is all about the mountain, the snow, and enjoying our time together with family and friends. The memories we have made and will continue to make on Haystack mountain are ones we will carry with us forever.

The Hermitage Club is the ideal atmosphere for families and friends to share and enjoy the beauty of the four seasons in Vermont. Ski corduroy all day long. Tee off when you like. Hike and mountain bike in peace. All on your private mountain.
Unhurried, Uncrowded, Uncompromising
The Hermitage Club at Haystack Mountain is a 1,400 acre enclave across West Dover and Wilmington, VT and provides members four seasons of private mountain activities, luxury accommodations, and a worry-free safe environment for families of all generations.
