MITOC has an active group of cross country and backcountry skiers, with trips typically running from January through May. If you are interested in learning to cross country and/or backcountry ski, we run introductory trips during Winter School. In addition, MITOCers organise trips not only here in the Northeast but across the US and beyond. Join the skiing mailing list and become a member of our skiing community. Upcoming trips and events will be announced on this list.
You can rent cross-country, backcountry, telemark, and AT ski equipment from MITOC. Please see the gear rental information page for details. MITOC does not have downhill/alpine ski equipment for rental.
IKON pass student discount
MITOC is part of the College Ski Club program from Ikon. MITOC members who are also students (grad or undergrad at any college/university) can get discounted passes ($449 for the base pass, $619 for the Ikon Pass), which is less than the College passes and significantly less than the public passes. Staff, faculty, etc are not eligible.
The major distinction between the Ikon and Base passes are that the Base passes have some blackout dates, and provide 5 days vs 7 days at the non-core resorts. You usually break even on the pass in 4-6 days of skiing at Northeast Ikon resorts (or a long weekend out West).
In the Northeast, locations include:
- Stratton, VT (unlimited)
- Sugarbush, VT (unlimited)
- Killington-Pico, VT
- Sugarloaf, ME
- Sunday River, ME
- Loon, NH.
To benefit from the discount, please fill out this form. We ask for some info (class schedule, birthday) to help us and Ikon verify student status. Once you’re validated as a MITOC student member you’ll receive a single-use code.
