Programs and Activities

At the heart of what we are as a club, is skiing.  It's what brings us together, and the passion we share.

Training and Instruction

Our Improvement Weekend is the ideal time to learn new skills, or sharpen existing ones.

We also offer testing to ensure that all Ramapo members have the requisite skills to keep from injuring themselves and others.

 

This year, we're hoping to run a Group Lesson on “Stance and Alignment”.  Tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, February 15th, 2023 at Windham Mountain, NY from 9 AM - 4 PM. This is for intermediate skiers and above and the cost not including Lift Ticket will be $165.  Contact Elyse Stoller for details.

Junior Program:

Junior weekends normally take place at the lodge two or three times a year.  They're a great opportunity to get your kids together with people their own age and make lifelong friends.  The lodge buzzes with enthusiasm as families hangout in the great room and play games, talk, play guitars or entertain younger members with arts and crafts.

During the day, the Club will subsidize Private/Group lessons at Mad River Glen (or Sugarbush for boarders), so it's a great opportunity to get some formal instruction and improvement.

There's no extra cost at the lodge on Junior Weekends.  This year's schedule is coming shortly

Local Skiing:

We've set-up a place for club members to post where they’re going skiing and a place to meet others, including carpools to local ski areas (if you’re willing to share your drive with someone).

Club members will need to sign-up and become a website member, then you can join the Member Outings Discussion Group.

Our meetup.com group page also helps get the word out about club and other related events to members and potential members.  To use meetup, you need to create a FREE account on their site with an email address and password. 

Once you have an account you can search for and join groups such ours. meetup.com/RMSC-Ski

When one of your groups announces an event, you will receive an email with the relevant information and you can RSVP to attend. You can also see who else plans to attend the event. Once you RSVP, meetup provides an easy way to put the event on your electronic calendar of choice and receive email or mobile notification reminders.

Discounted tickets for local ski areas are available to members from the New Jersey Ski and Snowboard Council.

See the NJSSC Rep at a Thursday night meeting to reserve for the following weekend.
