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 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.

It is now time to Renew Your Membership with Mt. Laurel Skiers. The membership year runs from September 1st through August 31st. The deadline to submit your renewal for the 2016-17 membership year is August 31st. If you renew after August 31st, please include the $15 late fee in your payment.
Starting this year, you have the option to renew online via the Reservation System where you can pay using PayPal (includes a 2.9% + $.30 trx fee). The online system renewal process has not yet been finalized. Once that is done, the member designed as the primary member on the Reservation System will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to process the renewal online. We anticipated that email to go out sometime in July or before.
The other option for renewal is to complete the Renewal Application and mail it to the address indicated on the form along with your payment. The Renewal Application as well as the New Member Application can be found on this page via links, on the Links / Flyers / Form page, and in the July Newsletter. I will be at most meetings so you can give me your completed form and payment. I will also have extra copies of the the Renewal and New Member forms if you need them.
Important - You will notice the renewal as well as the new member application is now two pages long. Page two is an updated Membership Agreement and Waiver which encompasses not only the activities of the club but also the use of the Mt. Laurel lodge in Vermont. Please take the time to read the updated waiver. Member signatures are required if mailing in the application.
Important Update: The Household category has been revised to reflect the updated Bylaws as it relates to dependent children of club members. Dependent children under age 26 and residing in the same household as the adult member(s) are now included in the Household memberships. Previously dependent children age 22 and under were included.
