What is the Bulk Buy Lift Ticket Program?
This is a program set up by the Connecticut Ski Council (CSC) for all their participating clubs to save skiers money on lift tickets to many of the ski areas in the Northeast. Winterset is a member of the CSC, therefore, you as a member of Winterset are able to partake in this program.
Winterset Ski Club through the CSC offers it's membership the opportunity to advance purchase lift tickets and lift ticket vouchers for many of the area ski resorts. During about 3 weeks in the month of September members are offered a list of mountains and ticket prices. Any paid member may purchase these tickets and vouchers, which have NO BLACK OUT DATES, for use during the coming ski season. These tickets and vouchers are for your use as an individual member, and are not needed for Day Bus Trips and/or longer trips that Winterset Ski Club offers it's members.

What if I don't use all the Vouchers that I order?
Each mountain has it's own return/credit policy. Most mountain will offer members credit on unused, returned vouchers -- this credit MUST be used the following ski season to purchase new vouchers for that same mountain. At the end of the season (During the month of April to be exact) Winterset members turn in unused vouchers to the Bulk Buy Ticket Coordinator, who in turn returns them to the CSC for credit for vouchers for next season --- PLEASE SEE THE INFORMATION FROM THE CSC AS TO THE EXACT RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR THESE RETURNS -- please note that credit is not guaranteed, so try to plan your purchases accordingly.
Do I need to purchase Vouchers for Winterset Trips?
No, lift tickets for any trips through Winterset will be purchased by the club and given to the members on and for that trip.
Are Bulk Buy Tickets the same as CSC Awareness Days?
No, this is a different program from the Awareness Days. These vouchers are good any day during the ski season at the particular mountain that you purchased tickets for. The CSC Awareness Days are a listing of specific dates/mountains/prices. You show up at the specific mountain, on the assigned date, show your membership card at the purchase window and get the discounted Awareness Day price.
Is the price of the Awareness Days the same as the Bulk Buy Ticket prices?
Usually not -- the prices may be more or less depending on the day/date/month, etc.
