Discount Bulk Ticket Sales
Discount bulk ticket sales for Okemo and Other Mountains are on their second round for the ski season. Because of the multiple purchasing opportunities, the Club will not buy any tickets for resale to members.
Note: Keep an eye out for messages through the squall, website, calendar and/or squall on where future Mt. Laurel meetings will be held as the current venue will be changing management and under construction for a period of time.
Membership Renewal Reminder
It is not too late to renew your membership with Mt. Laurel Skiers for the 2016-17 membership year but you will need to include the $15 late fee since it is past the August 31st deadline. Keep in mind that membership is a requirement in order to purchase Lodge vouchers and make reservations at the Lodge, purchase discount ski tickets and to participate in ski/snowboard racing at Mt. Southington. Click here for the renewal form or see me at a meeting for a form. New members can join at any time and there is never a late fee for new members.
