Join MTL

 
 

Welcome! The Mt. Laurel Skiers (MTL) is an ALL Season Sports and Social Club and a member of the Connecticut Ski Council which offers discount ski tickets. Our members are warm, friendly, fun and interesting people of all ages. The club typically hosts weekly social gatherings which include our community meetings. Members are primarily from Connecticut and neighboring states, but some from as far away as Florida and Kentucky!

There are a variety of organized activities such as downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, kayaking, golfing, seasonal get togethers AND the benefit of a renovated 30 bed lodge in Ludlow, Vermont near the base of Okemo.

MTL is more than just a ski club! And anyone can join to enjoy the many benefits and discounts. Explore the website to learn more.

PIzzaMount Southington CT Ski Council Monday Night Racing Starts on December 19th (Snow permitting).

On December 19th the CSC and Mount Southington will host free Pizza night! (7:00 pm – 9:00+) for pre-registration & get together.

The CSC will (probably) not race on the night of December 19th but we will ask that you fill out your season registration form to eliminate the always hectic rush of the first night. If there is skiing, (but no racing) on the 19th you are welcome to ski (special ticket $ of $25.00) if area open. The CSC will have all registration forms available for you to fill out or you can print them out from the Mount Southington web page. There are 2 waivers = Mount Southington/CSC and NASTAR. There will be no cost for the night. Hope to see you – around 7:00 pm.

Rob Dexter, CSC Racing chairman
