BULK TICKETS

Deadline to order bulk tickets is October 6th (Hamden’s October meeting)

NO EXCEPTIONS

See our bulk ticket coordinator Yolanda Dolce.

Bulk ticket order forms and credits have been sent out in a separate news blast. If you did not receive the news blast contact Yolanda Dolce as soon as possible at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Bulk Ticket Orders must be a CERTIFICED CHECK OR MONEY ORDER (YOU CAN GET MONEY ORDERS FROM THE POST OFFICE). Please have forms filled out in advance.

**If you want your tickets mailed enclose shipping cost now. If you decide at a later date, the $25.00 must be received before the tickets are mailed. This can take up to 14 days, so don’t expect your tickets in 2-3 days, as this is also the height of the Christmas season.

*****Please note: The club will not receive their order from The CSC until the CSC meeting in November; this also depends on how quickly the mountains fill the order. These orders need to be sorted and entered into our bulk ticket system. So please do not expect your tickets until the December meeting. If you want them earlier then you will need to have the tickets mailed to you, but there is no guarantee that you will receive the tickets before the Thanksgiving weekend.

You must be a member to receive bulk tickets. You can order your tickets and renew or join at the next meeting if you wish. Memberships can be paid by a personal check or cash. Bulk tickets must be by certified or cashier’s check.

Payments for membership and tickets MUST be separate (not on one check), if renewing or joining and getting bulk tickets at the meeting or by mail.

  • Please Note: Bulk tickets for Sugarbush will NOT be accepted at the On-Snow Weekend, March 4th – 6th.

If you come to the meeting, please be patient. It gets crowded, but the beer is good and the company better.

***When ordering Bulk Tickets for Okemo, please order only what you think you will use. Okemo will take additional orders [25 or more] from the CSC throughout the season.

At the end of the year any unused tickets returned Okemo will charge $1.00 per ticket returned, so any returned tickets you will need to give the club a check for the returned tickets or no credit will be given next year. The tickets will be radio frequency so only carry ONE ticket when skiing. The ticket will be scanned at the lift line and your picture will be scanned that will show at all ticket lines that day. Therefore tickets cannot be transferred to anyone else during the day. These tickets are also tracked back to the club if there is any abuse to the program.
