The Ski Village was a centralized area in the western side of Club Penguin Island. Located here were various buildings, which were the Ski Lodge and Everyday Phoning Facility, and formerly the Sport Shop. There were also paths into the Puffle Wild, which was a small area of The Wilderness, as well as the Beach and Dock.
The Ski Village was also the base of a small, snowy mountain which was known as the Ski Hill, which could quickly be scaled by using the Ski Lift machine. The Tour Booth was also located here, which served as a starting point for Tour Guides. Due to close proximity to several places, the Ski Village could've sometimes been busy.

The Ski Village was one of the original rooms in Club Penguin. When first opened, the only room accessible from here was the Dock. The Sport Shop, Ski Hill, and Ski Lodge were not accessible until (in order) November 3, November 8, and December 8. On June 16, 2006, the path to the Beach was added.
On May 18, 2010, the Sport Shop was damaged in the Popcorn Explosion, and due to the building's weakened infrastructure, was closed off permanently. A week later, the Everyday Phoning Facility was built here.
As part of Operation: Blackout, the Everyday Phoning Facility was damaged, and remained so for many months afterwards. After the operation ended, the Ski Village was renovated, where it received a graphical overhaul and some other adjustments.
