Stephen Dispenza

Steve and his wife Jill and their two children Nicole and Matthew joined the club in 2009 as a way for the whole family to meet new friends at the mountain and for their children to participate in the programs. Stephen started coming to Killington back in the 70's on High School ski trips. In the late 80's he partnered with 3 others from NJ and bought a home(much to the chagrin of JO) on Cubs Councourse.
