Membership of Thirroul Ski Club is currently open to direct family of current financial members ie spouse, partner or children. For all other people the Club maintains a membership waiting list. Thirroul Ski Club gives priority of membership to people who have stayed at Maranatha Lodge in the winter as an associate member.
For all membership enquiries including transfers and/or requests to go on to the waiting list, please contact the Committee at:
Thirroul Ski Club
PO Box 70
Thirroul NSW 2515 or email
For existing members who wish to join up direct family members a membership application can be downloaded and sent to the Committee at the above address.
Cost of Membership
$3,000 Interest Free Loan (IFL) plus a $1,000 nomination fee (inc GST) per person. The IFL is fully refundable (less any monies owing) on exit from the Club.
For Junior members, ie aged under 18 years, the $3,000 IFL may be paid off over a period of up to 10 years in annual instalments or until the child turns 18 years whichever comes sooner.
Each year a membership subscription fee and maintenance levy is payable by each member.
2018 fees - Adults:
Subscription fee - $170.00
Maintenance levy - $75.00
Total 2018 fees - $245.00
Members who attend at least one working bee during the year are exempt from paying the maintenance levy for the following year.
2018 fees - Junior Members (aged 2 to 17 years):
Subscription fee - $80.00
Junior members are exempt from paying the maintenance levy. Juniors under the age of 2 years are also exempt from the subscription fee as they are ineligible to stay in the Lodge during the winter until 2 years of age (except for Nappy Week).
The Subscription fee and maintenance levy are payable by 31 January each year. An invoice will be sent out usually in December of the preceding year.
Subscription Fee and Maintenance Levy Late Fees
Late fees apply to overdue Subs and Maintenance levies. These levies (together with accommodation fees) are the income which enables the Club to operate successfully and carry out essential maintenance and upgrades on the Lodge each year. In order to keep the booking rates affordable, and the Lodge maintained and improved, it is crucial that these levies are paid on time each year. The late fees are as follows:
Subs and maintenance levies will be required to be fully paid by 31st January each year.
After this date a late fee of $15.00 will be imposed for each year that the levies remain unpaid. A letter will be sent out in April advising members of any outstanding levies and fees owing.
Members will then have until 31st May to pay their levies (including any late fees).
From June the late fee will increase to $45.00.
If the amount owing in fees exceeds the value of the Interest Free Loan and is not paid the member will have their membership terminated by the Committee.
A member can choose to transfer their current membership to a family member if they wish to leave the Club. The IFL remains with the Club and is transferred to the new member's name. Payment of the IFL to the resigning member is the responsibility of the new member taking over the membership.
A member can choose to resign their membership. The IFL paid at the time of the member joining will be refunded less any monies owing to the Club.
