DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC, WE WILL UPDATE THE SKI CLUB PAGE AS WE GET CLOSER TO DECEMBER 2020. STAY WELL!
Welcome to the Ys Men Ski Club! We are a group of about 20 Ys Men that like to get outdoors and enjoy the winter and snow. Subject to weather conditions, every week starting in mid-December and continuing through the end of March, we make weekly trips to Butternut Ski Area in Barrington, MA. It is an informal group, and some Ys Men skiers are with us almost every week while others participate less frequently when conditions suit them. Everyone is welcome as there are skiers at all levels of ability in our club.
Butternut Ski Area (https://skibutternut.com) is about an hour and 45-minute drive from Westport. We meet at Merritt Parkway commuter parking 42 lot to form car pools and depart for Butternut no later than 8:00 AM sharp. We ski until 2:30 or 3:00 and arrive back at the commuter parking lot by 5:00 PM.
Generally, the default day is Tuesday, but we often select another day if conditions warrant. I send a weekly email blast to club members summarizing the snow conditions in advance and ask who is planning on joining in that week.
A daily midweek ski pass costs $20 for those over 70 and $25 for all others. If purchased before August 31st, season passes for Seniors over 70 are a bargain at $99. All other pay $299. Season passes have no “blackout days,” e.g., Christmas Holidays, etc.
If you would like to be added to the club roster and the weekly email blast, let me know, and I’ll add your name to the list.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to contact me by phone or email. We welcome all new members.
