That's not the annoying part. The annoying part is when a deal to save $20 off a lift ticket with no restrictions, all 7 days, all season long at XYZ resort is posted, then someone 2 weeks later posts a save $10 off a lift ticket at XYZ resort "deal".

I don't know how many times I have to say this but these deals are not only for CT. Ski Council member clubs.

*IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE THE DISCOUNT LIFT TICKETS, THE SKI CLUB OR COUNCIL MUST BE ASSOCIATED WITH A SKI COUNCIL THAT IS A MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL SKI COUNCIL FEDERATION.

The Stowe discount is awesome. So if you're in any local ski club that is a member of a larger council you're good with your local card?

If you click on this (http://www.skifederation.org/east.html) it gives you a list of the eastern councils that are part of the National Federation. Then click on the individual ski council to find a list of member clubs of those councils. The club I belong to is a member of both the Metropolitan Ski Council & the Ski/Snowboard Council of NJ. We get the same discounts whether they be ski council discount days or discount vouchers sold through the ski clubs to individual ski areas. Other discounts are the same also.

edit: the councils give out stickers every year you'll have to affix to your local ski club membership card to be valid. Some areas are very strict with this requirement. Sugarbush & Stowe are two areas I know for sure that are.

Well, perhaps it'll work even better if you start a new thread with the list up front so it's always easy to find?

Maybe Nick can make it sticky so it's always visible?

That is, if you wish to maintain it so it's reasonably up-to-day...

I did stick this thread. Or am I missing something
Nick, the problem with this thread is it'll grow to be 30 pages long and nobody can find anything in it except what's on the last page!

A list on the 1st page, like the one dlague put up, if updated often, will serve as a summary of what's in the rest of the thread.

Granted, we would need a volunteer (or more than one) to keep the list up-to-date.
