Skiing has never been more expensive. We are doing our part to bring costs down by bringing together skiers and boarders to purchase tickets in bulk. We obtain tickets to most Vermont and New Hampshire alpine resorts through Vermont Ski Area Association and Ski New Hampshire and offer them to our current members at significant discount over the daily window rate.
Our single-day ticket prices are significantly below window rates. Some remaining tickets can go for as little as $5 late-season! You will almost always recoup your membership dues on your first lift ticket purchase.
We pre-purchase lift ticket vouchers from Vermont and New Hampshire ski area associations during the summer. In July, we begin our member first-round “Mail sale”. There is no minimum purchase.
Join the club now! If you wait till the fall to join, you’ve probably missed tickets for the most popular resorts, since order forms are processed on a first-received, first-processed basis.
You must be present at the meeting to purchase tickets. There are limited quantities of some Vermont Mountains and some of those are on the verge of selling out, so come to the General Meeting for the best opportunity to get the tickets you want. Restrictions for Vermont Mountains are a 16 ticket maximum and no more than 2 tickets from any one mountain, except for Smugglers’ Notch, Bolton Valley and Burke for which you may purchase as many tickets as you want, subject to availability.
How It Works
In July and August, the Club through Benefits conducted a mail sale of Vermont and New Hampshire/Maine Tickets. A deposit of at least 50% of the total price was due at the time of the sale. The balance is due by November 1, 2013 by check or money order made out to Ace Ski and Board Club. Payment may be brought to the General Meeting on October 30, 2013 or mailed to Ilene Titus, P.O. Box 392, Southborough, MA 01772. If you do not remember your balance due or what you ordered, email IleneTitus@charter.net and you will be emailed a PDF of your order form.
You may purchase additional tickets at the General Meeting on October 30, 2013. Order forms for Vermont Mountains, Cannon and Bretton Woods will be available at that time. You must attend the meeting to purchase tickets in this sale. There are limited quantities of some Vermont Mountains and some have sold out. Come to the General Meeting for the best opportunity to get the tickets you want. Restrictions for Vermont are currently 16 ticket maximum with no more than 2 tickets from any one mountain. After the October 30th meeting, there will be an email ticket sale on a first come, first serve basis with confirmation by return email. Restrictions on the purchase of Vermont Mountains will continue to apply. Remaining tickets will go on sale at the December 10th meeting.
Notices from Benefits
Other than those sales at General Meetings, all tickets sales will be noticed by email with instructions as to how to place an order. There will be no notices sent by regular mail, so keep your email current with the Membership Chair at:firstname.lastname@example.org

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a member to purchase tickets?
Yes, tickets are for purchase by members in good standing only
Can I resell my tickets?
Tickets are NOT for resale. Do not attempt to sell at a Mountain/Resort – this will end up harming the club and yourself.
How do I orders tickets?
Lift Ticket order form must be complete, signed and payment attached in order to be accepted.
Do I receive the actual ticket?
What you actually receive is a voucher, which is exchanged for a lift ticket at the resort ticket counter. So we often use the terms “ticket” and “voucher” interchangeably.
What is the availability of tickets and how do hear about the sales?
You must be a member to purchase tickets. Due to a Summer mail sale and sales at meetings, starting in September, the availability starts to diminish in the early fall. JOIN THE CLUB NOW! to find out what is remaining, and be ready for next summer’s Mail Sale.
Not all tickets may be available. You will be advised by email if tickets to a particular resort have been depleted.
