As a club, we rep both Okemo and Killington with their 4.0 Season's Pass at a discounted rate. You do not need to be a RPI SSC member to purchase, only a full time student (your friend attending U-Albany could purchase with out code for example.) This season pass will allow you to ski or ride at Okemo, Killington, Pico, and Sunapee with no blackout dates.
We will be provide buses to and from these magnificent mountains every single week of the skiable season. These mountains offer awesome deals on college season passes and with a winter like this one, even better snow. Clear your Saturdays, and head up to shred the gnar with us every single weekend. These trips leave at roughly 7 am and return at about 6 pm the same day.

This year we have revamped our beginner trip program to better suit the club. In the past, we did a night program to Jiminy Peak. However, due to a lack of interest the past two years, these trips got continuously cancelled. Therefore, based on our pre-season survey this year, we're only doing trips on Saturdays. Now, our beginner trips will be every Saturday going to more local mountains that are smaller, with a little easier terrain, cheap rentals, and lift tickets. This allows students who are never-evers or new to the sport be able to participate at an even lower cost than trying to attend a 4.0 Pass trip to Killington or Okemo. While also skiing/riding at a smaller mountain that is less overwhelming. The mountains will vary as well as the departure/arrival times, but stay tuned for more information as we continue to plan this out!
Last year, we built two awesome 8' boxes to play with as well as got some shovels and crazy people from all over campus to build features where ever the snow allows, and this year, that's everywhere. We'll have jumps on EMPAC hill, RSE hill, and Freshman hill, and expect us to build more whenever we don't have class. We'll let you know when we head out, so come join us for some urban tricks all season long. The best part? It's all free, grab your gear and come hang out with the Ski Club!
