NJSSC – Stratton voucher issue

Posted by skijcb on December 13th, 2014

Hello All –

Members who purchased first round Stratton vouchers need to be aware of the following information:

So sorry again about the misprint on the tickets- I have made our guest services department aware of the issue and regardless of what is printed on the voucher they are set up to print anytime tickets when redeemed. Our staff has been made aware of this issue and if any of your guests run into problems with a guest service representative not knowing to honor it you can inform them to ask for the GS manager Shannon. If for some reason she is not there they can call me.

 Thanks!

NJSSC NorthEast Resort Appreciation Days

Posted by skijcb on October 24th, 2014

NJSSC Resort Appreciation Days Discounts

Hello All –

Unfortunately, there has been no announcement from NJSSC concerning 2014-2015 voucher pricing, either for up-grades or for new purchases.

Luckily, there has been an announcement for NJSSC appreciation days at several mountains. From my experience, the prices for these appreciation days are going to be below regular voucher prices.

When you take advantage of these NJSSC appreciation days, I STRONGLY urge you to have a printed copy of the respective mountain flyer in your pocket when making your lift ticket purchase at the window. Not all resorts are diligent about disseminating discount info to their staff and many lift ticket sellers may know nothing about these discounts.

That said, you will also need your 2014-2015 Craigmeur Club membership card with the 2014-2015 NJSSC orange sticker on the back to take advantage of these discounts.

HAPPY SLIDING !!

NYC Bike Ride

CHANGED TO OCT.5TH DUE TO RAIN!!

We’ll meet at the Weehawken ferry parking lot Saturday morning 9AM. The ride will start here and go up to the GWB via River Road. We’ll cross over the GWB and head down to South Street Seaport along the Hudson River Greenway. We’ll have some lunch & libations at South Street Seaport then had back up the Greenway to the West Mid-town Ferry Terminal on 39th St. From there everyone has a choice to  take the ferry back to Weehawkin, or Hoboken to continue libations or just keep riding back to Weehawkin over the GWB. This is a family friendly ride but there are some sections that are on live streets. Everyone riding should be street wise. Any questions, please give Chuck Emery a call at 973-723-5358 or email emery.chuck@gmail.com

Take in the fun on this fall foliage multi-event family friendly day including an easy out and back rail to trail ride. The day will begin at 10:00am for a tour of the Lakota Wolf Preserve located at the Camp Taylor Campground, 89 Mt. Pleasant Rd. Columbia NJ (877)-733-9653 (Rt. 80E, exit 4 Rt. 94N go 2miles, Mt. Pleasant will be on left).  Cost $15 adult and $7 11yrs and under (cash only).  We can only take 15 people so the first 15 to reserve your spot (by calling us) will be allowed.  The tour ends at noon, pack a lunch and snack for later.  Onto our bike ride. From there we head north on Rt. 94 about 1 ½ miles to our starting point of the Paulinskill Valley Trail bike ride. Turn right onto W. Crisman Rd., come to T and make hard right onto Polkville Kill Rd. (kill is Dutch for creek).  Park anywhere under the Viaduct (built by the DLW Railroad in 1910 the world’s largest reinforced concrete structure in its time).  For those meeting us we will leave at 1:00pm sharp so have your bikes and tires filled all ready to go.  We will ride about 10 miles out, taking in the beautiful rural surroundings, vast farmland, lakes w/ white swans and, planes and gliders at the Blairstown Airport.  Then back the same way.  Onto the Brook Hollow Winery.

Back onto Rt. 94S about 2 ½ miles we will enjoy one hour of wine tasting at the Brook Hollow Winery. For those who have been there before and have your glasses the tasting is free, everyone else is $5 so keep your glass and go back anytime for free tastings.  Kids have room to play Frisbee or check their social media updates :o).  The winery intends to have a select Lakota wine available for sale which gives 25% of proceeds back to the Preserve to assist in their efforts.  For those meeting us at the winery, we should be there around 4:15-4:30ish.

Lastly, back out onto Rt. 80E we will be eating dinner at Pub 199 (cash only) , take the Howard Blvd exit and drive a few miles north.  For those just meeting us for dinner we expect to be there around 6:30ish.

Welcome Back Craigmeur members – veterans and rookies alike.  Let’s hope for another great winter weather season like last year.

Sunday River Maine fired up their new snow guns last week as a test since it was COLD enough to make snow !!  The leaf colors are brilliant, the acorns are falling, autumn has arrived and the countdown begins to the winter solstice.

Admission & parking are free. There is an Irish pub on premises to purchase a meal if you are hungry or a beverage if you are thirsty.

NJSSC membership stickers for the 2014-2015 season have been delivered to Craigmeur’s membership chairperson and will be placed on the back of your Craigmeur membership card when you renew your dues. Show this sticker to retailers / resorts / restuarants in ski country or anywhere else you patronize to let them know you are a member of NJSSC and would like to enjoy any discounts they offer to NJSSC members.

Take quick look at the late summer 2014 NJSSC post and you will find info about three (3) NJSSC sponsored trips for the 2014-2015 season.
