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.
High School Photos
It's back! The weekly lineup of what we looked like when the world was still in black and white. A new photo will be displayed each week. The identity will be revealed in a morph a week later. If your smiling youthful countenance hasn't been displayed, it's time to dig out the yearbook. Scan the photo or take a good quality digital photo of it and send it to Pat Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
