When returning tickets either via mail or in person:


ALL tickets must be in an envelope and that envelope must identify:

  • Primary Members Name,
  • Primary Member Number,
  • Address,
  • Phone Number
  • Email address


The envelope must indicate the number of tickets being returned for each Mountain
and age category in addition to the total overall number of tickets being return
ed.  


Example:  11 returned tickets: 

    • 4 Okemo Adult,
    • 3 Okemo Senior,
    • 2 Mount Snow Adult,
    • 2 Stowe Jr.


We strongly encourage members to take a photo of the details listed on their return envelope in
addition to photos of each ticket returned to include the ticket number so that they have a record of
what tickets were returned.

**********************************************************************************
Please remember that full credit for tickets
is not guaranteed and it is very likely that if
there are a lot of returned tickets that full
credit will not be received.  Also remember that both
Okemo and Sunapee will also be assessing a $1 charge
for each ticket that is returned against the credit amount
that is allowed.   Both the Board and the CSC encourage
you to use your tickets if you can between now and
April 28, 2018 as there is still plenty of snow on the ground up north.

Bulk Buy Lift Ticket Voucher Program
Offered through the Connecticut Ski Council (CSC)

 

The Bulk Buy Lift Ticket Voucher Program is offered to Winterset Members through the Connecticut Ski Council.  Through the CSC's partnerships with Northeast resorts, they are able to offer steeply discounted lift tickets to their club members.  As Winterset Ski Club is a member of the Connecticut Ski Council.  We are able to offer this program and discounts to all our club members.

 

The bulk ticket program is designed to give ski club members an opportunity to purchase lift tickets for the upcoming season at reduced rates.  These savings can amount to 30%-40% of the retail lift ticket price. The vouchers for these tickets are ordered in September and delivered in November.  These vouchers are presented to the ski resort by the club member along with their membership ID and exchanged for the appropriate lift tickets.  Any unused vouchers can be turned in at the end of the ski season for credit towards new vouchers for the same mountain next year.  Not all mountains give 100% credit every year.  Please read all the rules and regulations before buying vouchers.

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.
