Hello Craigmeur Members –

Here we are on the cusp of the first weekend in April and Spring is pushing into New Jersey with winter battling back every inch of the way. Snow showers are forecast for several days this week just to keep us in a spring skiing frame of mind. Like Tuesday – snowed most of the day here in Rockaway !

And spring skiing is going gang busters in Vermont with many resorts still operating with near 100% open terrain and some resorts turning lifts until 5pm on weekends. Monitor your favorite Vermont resorts’ web site for trail information & operating status.

Head north and use those NJSSC vouchers you’ve been holding since December 2014, the skiing doesn’t get much better this time of year. Or bring your vouchers to any club meeting and sell them to a fellow member who will ski them.

Should you end your ski season with vouchers for exchange, make sure to turn them in to Chris Budd at any club meeting ON / BEFORE Wednesday 29 April 2015 to ensure you receive a credit towards next season’s voucher purchase.


Only NJSSC vouchers are eligible for upgrade; not resort issued exchange vouchers, not pre-purchased resort lift tickets, not Ski VT vouchers.

Should you miss to 29 April cut-off, consider your vouchers souvenirs & treat them as such.


2015 Craigmeur Club Race

Posted by Mike Rachmiel on March 18th, 2015

This past Saturday March 14, 2015 we had Craigmeur Ski Club’s annual club race at Bromley, VT, we had 57 racers. The weather was 32 degrees, soft snow, but foggy with light rain. The event took less than two hours and no T-bar issues like years past. After the race we had a barbeque in the afternoon at the lodge and the festivities  went late into the evening. Especially thanks for  to the barbeque committee for a job well done.


Note: We have plenty of action shots and videos for the web page that will be posted shortly.

 Well in this reporters opinion, everybody enjoyed the race, barbeque and had fun. So remember you have 365 days to get ready for the 2016 race.

Craigmeur Ski Club does it Again!

This past Saturday February 7, 2015 was the NJSC state race for the adults and Jr. at Pico, VT., we had 13 adults and 11 juniors racing. Craigmeur Ski Club had its best day ever for the adult team, we won the women’s overall, junior overall and the combine overall.

The snow gods were shining on the Craigmeur Ski club women’s race team, this past Saturday February 7, 2015. Once again the women’s team took home the gold (only 2nd time ever) in the overall at the NJSC State race @ Pico.  The women’s’ team was comprised of Anneliese Yombor 1st place overall, Kimberly Hollister 7th overall, Brianne Rachmiel 8th overall and especially big thanks to Isabelle Brennan for stepping-up, finally joining the team and making the win all possible.

The Men’s team had an off day, by taking 5th place. Congrats to Ronald (aka Rob) McDonald 6th overall, Justin Stone 9th overall, Don Stinson, Pat Brennan for filing an open spot, Bob Quinn and Jim Hollister. Rounding out the Men’s B” team was Mike Rachmiel, Chris Budd Jr., and Larry Ticotin.

The junior team was comprised of Killan Yombor, Meredith Hollister, Sarah Priore, Russell Hollister, Jake Yombor, Sandra Quinn, Maggie McDonald, Patrick Quinn, Lindsay Stinson, Emma Brennan and Liam Brennan.

Our club was the hit of the race party for our large turn out to our loud cheering. The President of the NJSC was so impress with our Jr. Team that they are posting their team picture on the NJSC web page and also will be in the NJSC 2016 council book. In closing I like to say thanks to everybody for showing up (Not you Mr. Trash talker aka Craig DeSantis) and making this our best team results ever!

Look for a future date in May when we’ll be presenting the NJSC cup to the club.

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.
