The club was started by employees of the SUBmarine SIGnal Corp, later a part of Raytheon, in the middle 1940s. Many of the early trips were run out of a bus converted to an early prototype of an RV. A stove provided heat, 16 bunk beds and a kitchen area with propane burners were squeezed in, ski racks added, and a sanding system for traction on icy roads was installed. There are many tales in the ski country of New England about this legendary club vehicle, part transportation, part monument, part event, and some of them must be true! The bus is immortalized in the Sub Sig logo.
Sub Sig is a club of activists. The trips only happen because someone is willing to lead them. If you have ideas for a trip, or would like to co-lead with an experienced leader, let us know. We don’t require any rigorous training for our leaders, only the willingness to organize car-pooling and food, then coordinate activities at the cabin.
