Edmonton Ski Club is located on Connors Hill, the slope of the North Saskatchewan River valley, in the heart of downtown Edmonton, in the community of Cloverdale. The top of the hill yields a great view of the downtown core behind the Muttart Conservatory.

The Edmonton Ski Club is a Not-for-Profit Society established in 1911.[3] During the winter months, the hill offers skiing and snowboarding on machine-made, groomed snow. The hill has five surface lifts including a T-Bar for uphill transportation. In summer, the grassy hills are used by a variety of slope sports including dirtsurfing. In August, these same slopes become seating areas for the Edmonton Folk Music Festival.

In 2017, the lease for the buildings was terminated. [4]
