Metroland Takes First Place Again !
Hey Skiers & Riders,
Join Metroland this Sunday January 5th when we ski & ride Belleayre. Lift tickets are just $30 when you preregister by responding to this email. Please let us know if you need a lift ticket, lesson and or rentals in your response. Tickets are $40 for nonmembers.
Meet in the lower Discovery lodge in the brand-new wing where the Stone and Copper room used to be between 8-9:30am. If you simply need a lift ticket there is no need to wait in line. Simply sign in, have exact change and your membership card in hand and we will take care of you right away. Ski or board rentals are $30 and a lesson is $20.
Metroland has sent out the updated “Welcome Member 101.2” email which gives an overview of club discounts and benefits. Look for the 101.3 email soon. Members can refer to that email to find the complete Council Appreciation and Awareness day list, ski club lodge options, discounts and other benefits. Dates are still coming in so look for it to be periodically updated from the earlier 101.1 version.
Join Metroland on Saturday Jan 25 for the Met NY Ski Council race at Pico. It is one of the best events of the season and the après party is second to none with lots of food, prizes, auctions and fun. Metroland took first place in the main team event and had the fastest husband and wife teams last year too. Join us by simply showing up to support our team. We can do it again.
This seasons CSC On Snow 3 day extravaganza will be held at Waterville Valley New Hampshire Friday Feb 28 – Sunday March 1. Take a look at the CSC website for more details.
Remember, one of the best ways to “ski more for less” is to plan your trip in advance by looking at our Awareness and Appreciation Day list. Members please refer to that list and order advance sale lift tickets to fill in the odd days out. Remember unused lift tickets are returnable* at seasons end for credit in the following year.
Did you know Metroland Ski Club has the most extensive list of discounted lift tickets in the Northeast. No other club has as many lift ticket possibilities. Last year there were about 2,000. So, if you like to ski or ride inexpensively, join. We do not have any meeting requirements or ask our members to take on any responsibilities other than asking you to attend one of our club or Council events this winter. Simply complete the release, pay your dues online and your off to ski and ride to your hearts content. https://squareup.com/store/metroland-ski-club-membership-dues

Metroland is a not for profit ski club that helps skiers and riders plan reasonably priced ski trips. We do that by putting together a great set of mountains where you can affordably get your turns in. Check the deals and discounts page to find exceptional discount lift ticket opportunities and more.
On our Discount Lift Ticket Page you will find specially priced Council Awareness & Appreciation Days. These special days are a terrific way to get out to the best mountains for about about half price. Metroland also has advance sale lift tickets with no black out dates at substantially discounted rates. Members have nearly 2,000 possible lift ticket discounts. Take a look and see what works for you.
* Thanks to all who made last year so much fun. Our trips to Belleayre, Pico, Andorra, Banff, Innsbruck Austria, Jackson Hole Wyoming and Madonna Di Campiglio Italy were phenomenal. It was a great season and we are looking forward to more of the same. For 2020 we are headed to Europe to spend February break in Engelberg Switzerland. In early March we will head to the Great White North to ski and ride Banff Lake Louise. Our Spring fling wraps up the season with the clubs first trip to Chamonix, France. Lift tickets at Belleayre are only $30 for our clubs day trips again this year! We will start the season there to build the strength for the season. See you in December.
