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.

Bulk Ticket program Abuses
Arguably, the most important program offered by the CT Ski Council, is being abused and is at risk. Okemo has reported multiple instances of;
- individuals using someone else's ID card.
- individuals with vouchers but no ID card.
- ID cards without a valid, dated sticker.
- Individuals trying to redeem multiple vouchers on a single ID card.
- Individuals that are not CSC members trying to redeem vouchers.
- Individuals acting rudely and abusively toward Okemo employees.
Okemo has stated they will terminate their voucher program next year if the problem continues at the same rate. Additionally, the CSC can apply sanctions to clubs whose vouchers are being abused. Please see the CSC Bulk Ticket Policy for additional information.
