Dear Skiers & Riders

Our first meeting for the 2014-2015 season will be September 2nd, at 7:30pm, at the Playwright Restaurant & Pub, Whitney Avenue, Hamden.


2014-2015 Membership applications will be available at the meeting and are also attached.  We’re handling things a bit differently to make things easier and to save time for everyone.  Please read the requirements on the application and fill it out NEATLY.


VIP Ski Coupon Program – Sept. Meeting

At the Hamden Ski Club September Meeting, the VIP Program continues again this year.  This provides our membership and prospective members 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 a ticket from the (16) mountains in the program.  Our Club purchases a single book of VIP tickets which contains (5) lift tickets for each of the listed mountains.

Rules for the raffle:

1.Members / new members only.

2.Payment in full for ticket orders by check or cash – at the 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 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 membership approves, we can have an additional lottery for a second book of VIP tickets.


Bulk Tickets – No information is available at this time.  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 have full details.
