How to Join

Effective October 2017, the club has moved to an online membership management system called Wild Apricot, a top-rated software program that is used by more than 20,000 organizations and clubs. This software will allow for improved efficiency in a number of ways.

We are taking a phased approach, with membership management being the initial phase. Members can self-manage their membership profile. The Wild Apricot membership profile will have new data fields to store many of the data elements used in trip sign-ups. Members will have the option to use a credit card to pay for their memberships and renewals, so this will reduce the number of checks processed by the club. Future phases are anticipated to be using Wild Apricot as our website host and ultimately to use it for trip sign-ups.

To join the club or renew your membership, click on this link (or on the logo above) to go to our Wild Apricot membership page (will open in a new browser window). Then return to the Trips Page on our legacy website (where you are now) if you're ready to sign up for a trip.

The processing and approval of membership applications is pro forma, once you submit your online application and payment. If you're anxious to sign up for a particular trip, you can do so as soon as you've joined by returning to our legacy website Trips Page.

Current Members

Current members (as of October 2017) should receive an email with login credentials and a link to the Wild Apricot website. We encourage you to go to the website and review your profile information. We have imported the data elements from our legacy database into Wild Apricot, but you may need to make updates or corrections.

We anticipate rolling out trip sign-ups on Wild Apricot for the 2018-2019 ski season. In preparation for that process, you should verify that your name (First, Middle, and Last) are accurate and match your government-issued photo ID. You should also add your Emergency Contact information and frequent flyer & known traveler numbers (e.g., Global Entry). These data fields will be used whenever you sign up for a trip, so you should confirm that all your data is accurate. If you ever need to change the data when signing up for a trip, you can do that. Either update your profile before you initiate a trip sign-up or make changes to the appropriate data as you are completing a sign-up.
