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 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 decides we can move to a second round for a second book of VIP tickets.
