The Ski Club of Ireland was founded in 1964 as a social club of skiing enthusiasts. In 1969 the Club established its first ski slope in the grounds of Knockrabo House, Mount Anville Road, Goatstown, Co. Dublin.
Developments at Kilternan
In the mid 1970's the Club moved to its current location in Kilternan. The skiing facilities were upgraded several times since then, including the installation of a modern Poma lift. In 1992 further major improvements were made with the addition of beginner slopes, another Poma lift and misting systems. In 2011 another major development took place, grant-aided by the Irish Sports Council, with the redesign of the nursery slope and the installation of Snowflex matting and two Travellator lifts. The facilities at Kilternan now rank among the finest dry slopes in Europe, boasting a 180m main slope, a 130m intermediate slope, each served by modern Poma lifts, with two Snowflex slopes, Travellator lifts and low level misting systems to lubricate the skiing surfaces.
We continue to plan further improvements.
