It’s Almost Season Pass Season

With your membership this year you will soon be receiving a new Stowe Nordic membership card which gets you a bunch of great discounts, including 40% off your season ski pass at Stowe Mountain Resort Cross-Country Center  (note that the new Epic Pass no longer includes access to the XC trails).

How to get your pass – there will no longer be a “list” at the Stowe Mountain Pass Office, instead you will use your membership card plus a secondary ID such as a drivers license to get the discount.  The Stowe Mountain pass office will be ready to issue discounted passes to club members soon

Also, if you plan to buy a Trapps pass you only have a few days left to get their 20% early season discount which ends on Oct. 31st.

New Friday Women’s Ski Program

In addition to our Monday Masters ski training group which is targeted at the competitive skier we are introducing a less demanding program on Friday afternoons designed specifically for women who want to learn to ski better, get some exercise, and have fun.  It is scheduled to permit those who work and can get away a little early on Fridays to join.  The program will be professionally coached by a former college XC racer now focusing her expertise on helping others improve their technique, fitness and enjoyment of the sport.

Time:   Fridays 3:30-5pm – 10 sessions from December through early March (full schedule to be announced)
Location: Stowe Mountain Resort XC Center
Cost:   $85  –  club membership and ski-pass are required (pass is 40% off for members)
Questions:  info@stowenordic.org
Sign-up at:  www.stowenordic.org/programs  (click on Friday Women’s Group) – link not available until Nov. 1st
