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.

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.
