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 newly renovated 32 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.
On May 15th we were treated to an electrifying performance of the original cast members of Beatlemania. A huge MTL thank you goes out to Eric Ardolino and his team of volunteers for arranging this great lodge fundraising effort. Check out the photos!
The bike weekend (aka sports weekend) is scheduled July 17-19. This has been an annual event for many many years. The sports part of it generally goes off on its own. Someone has volunteered to mark the rides and those who plan to hike and golf will take care of organizing that. We also have someone to organize the dinner that night which could be something simple like a barbecue with side dishes. But we STILL need an innkeeper. Let's make this weekend happen this year!!!! Contact Barbara Wysocki @ email@example.com
A crew of dedicated members worked hard over the weekend of May 2-3 to do a thorough Spring Cleaning of the lodge. It looks terrific! Check out a few photos.

MTL Bike Rides, May 4th through August 22nd
Biking season is upon us and we are in need of people willing to run a bike ride for the Mt. Laurel ski club. It is easy to do, and for information on how to do it, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or my work email at: email@example.com. You may also call my cell at: 860 604-7530. We have some injuries in the club which will prohibit these folks from running bike rides, so we need people to step forward and pick up the ball, or the bike. Rides are Monday evenings, starting on May 4th, and running through August 22nd, and are at different locations, depending on who is hosting them. Most of the rides are combined with the Newington ski club, so there is much friendship and comraderie between the two clubs. After the ride there is either a pizza party at a restaurant, or a cookout in the back yard of the host. Looking forward to hearing from folks willing to host a ride. Thank you, Clyde Proch
