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.
Membership Stickers and Cards are Available

NOTICE: To ALL MTL Members
Recently, a club member gave the lodge entry code to a non-member. This non-member stayed at the lodge unsupervised. Our insurance prohibits unsupervised and unaccompanied guests, placing our lodge and club at risk. Our insurance and Ludlow zoning prohibit room rentals to the general public (i.e. unsupervised guests). Additionally, we need to keep our lodge and ourselves safe.
It is imperative that guests of MTL members be supervised and accompanied by said members at all times. The door code should not be shared with non-members.
All members are responsible for their guests, must supervise their guests, and must be present when their guests are at the lodge.
Thank you, and let's have a great ski season.
It's that time again - membership renewal. Note: New members can join at any time with never a late fee. Download the New Member form. Existing members will need to add a $15 late fee. Download the renewal form and fill it out today.
Killington / Pico bulk ticket vouchers are LIVE TICKETS. Please do not carry more than one per visit. IF multiple tickets are on your person, all tickets will be VOIDED.
