Very Important: Be sure to get the Lodge combination prior to going to the lodge.

There are a number of different routes you can take, but we offer some suggestions.

  • The directions from our own Dick Butler, who has tried several routes and recommends this way Driving Directions from Syracuse to the OSC Lodge in Vermont on a separate printable page in .pdf format.
  • Google Maps provides directions from anywhere to the lodge. All you need to do is go to "get directions", fill in the form and it will create a route to the lodge for you. It has some really nice features.
  • Mapquest can provide excellent driving directions from your starting place, and may provide some variations with shortest route, fastest route, or whatever you may select. Your ending location (the ski club lodge) is 4051 Vt. Rt. 100, Lower Granville, VT 05747.
  • Others in the club may have favorite routes and places to stop for refreshments, ask around. It is always prudent to have a map, just in case you miss a turn.
  • Then there is always the high technology way - GPS - Lower Granville is located at 43 degrees 59' 05.14" North, 72 degrees 50' 48.54" West, and is about 977 ft. above sea level.

Staying at the Lodge

For your stay at the lodge you will need to bring sheets or sleeping bags and pillow cases, towels, and whatever food items you plan to consume. Blankets are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped. Please take your recyclable food bottles and cans back home with you. Cleaning of your assigned room and all common areas must be done before departing. There is no cell phone reception at the lodge and only local calls can be made on the lodge phone. Therefore, a calling card is necessary if you plan to make long distance calls from the lodge phone.
The lodge phone number is 802-767-3234.

There are four bathrooms at the lodge. A men's dorm bathroom and a women's dorm bathroom are on the first floor. The third bathroom is shared by rooms 5, 6, and 7 on the second floor. The fourth bathroom is shared by rooms 1, 2, 3, and 4, also on the second floor.
