Connecticut Ski Council Bulk Ticket and Awareness Days Policies 2016-2017
The following is the policy of the Connecticut Ski Council regarding the purchase and use of bulk ticket vouchers. The CSC requires that all member-clubs comply with these policies.
Purchase of Vouchers:
- Bulk ticket vouchers may be purchased by CT Ski Council member-clubs only, and only after the club has been a member of the CSC for one full year.
- Bulk tickets are for the exclusive use of dues-paying members of CSC member-clubs.
- CSC annual dues must be paid in full prior to the club placing bulk ticket orders.
- Orders will be placed at the October CSC meeting each year. Vouchers are to be picked up at the November CSC meeting by the club’s designee. Under no circumstances will bulk tickets be mailed to a club.
Exchange of Vouchers for Daily Lift Tickets:
- Each club member 18 years of age or older must be issued a club membership card, and the current year’s CSC sticker must be affixed to that card. Family membership club cards must list the names of family members on the card and must affix a current and valid CSC sticker for each person listed. Clubs may elect to issue membership cards to individuals under the age of 18 in lieu of listing names on a family card.
- EVERY PERSON WHO EXPECTS TO EXCHANGE A BULK TICKET VOUCHER FOR A DAY’S LIFT TICKET AT ANY MOUNTAIN RESORT MUST HAVE EITHER HIS/HER OWN INDIVIDUAL CLUB MEMBERSHIP CARD, OR BE INDIVIDUALLY NAMED ON THE FAMILY’S MEMBERSHIP CARD AND A VALID CSC STICKER AFFIXED FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL WHETHER ON HIS/HER OWN CARD OR ON A FAMILY CARD.
- Club membership cards will be shown by individuals to ticket window personnel when a voucher is being redeemed for a daily lift ticket. Mountain resorts have the right to request and/or require identification in addition to club membership cards at their discretion. Resorts also have the right to refuse redemption of voucher if a valid membership card is not presented for each voucher to be exchanged for lift ticket.
- Clubs shall not charge their members any additional purchase fee, and shall only sell vouchers to its members at the price quoted by the CSC. We recommend that no tickets shall be mailed to individuals by the clubs, but in the event this occurs, actual postage fees may be charged by the club to the individual on a per-order basis only.
- Distribution of vouchers through other avenues such as but not limited to websites, eBay, resort parking lots, guests of rental properties or contest give-aways will result in the banning of the individual from purchasing vouchers in subsequent seasons.
- Names of chronic and blatant individual violators will be provided to all CSC member-clubs on an annual basis.
- Violation of the CT Ski Council policies will result in possible termination of the individual’s membership in his/her club, and possible expulsion of the club from the CSC.
Return of Unused Vouchers at Close of Season:
- All unused vouchers shall be returned to the CSC bulk ticket coordinators at the May CSC meeting – no exceptions.
- A dollar percentage of unused vouchers shall be credited to each club that has returned said vouchers. The credit shall be applied to the purchase of the following year’s vouchers.
- The percentage will vary according to the contract with the individual participating resort. Credit is based on an aggregate figure allotted to the CSC.
- Refer to Okemo Bulk Ticket Policy for specific return instructions.
Please note: Policies apply to both Southern and Northern tiers. There may be modifications in Northern tier policies; please contact those coordinators for details.
Please note: All membership card information also applies to all CSC Awareness days.
