Ski Council Discounts: Ticket Benefits. The Ski Club of New Jersey has a long relationship with the Ski and Snowboard Council of New Jersey because the founders who started the Ski Club, founded the Ski and Snowboard Council of New Jersey. The Council provides its 40+ member clubs with the opportunity to purchase discount vouchers at top resorts. Club members also use member club cards co-branded with the Council’s identifying logo to enjoy skier appreciation “Ski Council Discount Days.” These days offer huge discount tickets at numerous resorts which participate, sometimes up to 50%. Resorts such as Whiteface, Killington, Stowe, and Sunday River are only a small sampling of participating resorts offering club discounts thru the Council. Visit here to view the Ski and Snowboard Council of New Jersey’s 2018-19 offerings which lists all of the resort and other discounts available.
The Ski Club of New Jersey also has a relationship with the Metropolitan New York Ski Council, which also began in the 1930’s as an umbrella organization dedicated to promoting the amateur sport of skiing. The Council covers a geographic area which includes Brooklyn, Westchester, Queens, Manhattan, Long Island, and also parts of Connecticut, NJ, and Vermont. Both the Councils partner to offer 3rd & 4th and 5th graders the opportunity to ski free, which you can learn about on their websites. Read their offerings listed in their 2018-19 guidebook found here.
