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 (2022-23)

MITOC is part of the Ikon Pass College Ski Club program. MITOC members who are also current students (grad or undergrad at any college/university) can get discounted passes ($469 for the base pass, $669 for the Ikon Pass or Ikon Base Plus Pass), which is $100 less than the general College passes and $300-$400 less than the public pass prices. Staff, faculty, affiliates, etc are unfortunately 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:

The 22/23 Ikon Base Pass does not have access to Aspen/Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Alta, Deer Valley, Snowbasin or Sun Valley. The 22/23 Ikon Pass now gives you 7 days access to Crystal.

To benefit from the discount, please fill out this form. It asks for some info to help us and Ikon verify your student status. Follow the instructions, and after we validate everything we will contact you with a single-use code to use on the Ikon Pass website. Passes must be purchased by December 1, 2022 - codes will not work after that date!
