Membership

2015-2016 Membership Applications will be available at the meeting.

Please read the directions on the form carefully and print clearly. Children over 18 years of age need their own single membership, even if they live at the same address as their parents. Our club has over 750 members, so making calls to correct information is not feasible. Memberships will only be processed on weekends, so plan accordingly.

Be sure you can receive bulk email from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Each membership card has a serial number which directly links to a member. Anyone who misuses their membership identification will lose all privileges with the Connecticut Ski Council and will be legally prosecuted as any mountain or business sees fit.

VIP Ski Coupon Program – Sept. Meeting

At the Hamden Ski Club September Meeting, the VIP Program continues again this year, providing our membership and prospective members with the opportunity to ski Vermont at a special value. Unlike the Chinese Downhill…there are rules. Each attending member/new member will be issued a lottery ticket. When your number is picked you will have the opportunity to choose from the 16 mountains in the program. There are five (5) lift tickets available per mountain.

Rules for the raffle:

1. Members/perspective members only.

2. Payment in full for ticket orders by check or cash – day of the raffle.

3. The mountains are grouped into four categories.

 Group A - Killington, Okemo, Mt. Snow, Stratton = one ticket per purchase per round.

 Group B - Bromley, Jay Peak, Mad River, Pico, Stowe, Sugarbush = one ticket per purchase per round.

 Group C - Bolton Valley, Burke, Magic, Smugglers, Middlebury, Suicide Six = two tickets per purchase per round.

 

You may decline to purchase tickets at anytime. When we finish a round of pulling lottery tickets, we will continue to a second or third round until all tickets are gone. When all tickets are purchased, and if the board agrees, we may move to a second raffle for a second book of VIP tickets.

Bulk Tickets

There are no full details as yet. Any information that is received will be announced at the meeting.

A Newsblast will be sent as soon as all information is available. The October newsletter will also have full details. The October meeting is the deadline for bulk orders. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Okemo has changed the bulk ticket system, tickets will be a radio frequency ID lift ticket. These will be direct-to-lift live tickets that will scan the ski ID number. Okemo will also be charging $1.00 for each ticket returned at the end of the season, so when ordering tickets order what you know you will use. Okemo will take additional orders (25 or more) from the CSC throughout the season.
