Benefits of becoming a member

Welcome to the camaraderie and relaxed social vibe of Mt Cheeseman Ski Club, where we make hitting the slopes affordable. Commercial ski field day passes can put a strain on your budget, making it challenging to ski as often as you’d like. By joining Mt Cheeseman, you’ll unlock significantly discounted rates, allowing you to pack in more ski days without breaking the bank.

Q: When is the cut off for birthdays?

A: it is the age you are at on the 1st January of that year.

Q: When does a child become a youth?

A: For the child category, membership is for children 10 and under. Once they turn 11, they become a Youth. Age cut off is the age you are at on the 1st of January of that year.

Surround yourself with like-minded people and make friends in a magic alpine environment, that’s great for adults and kids alike. You’ll be kept in the loop with regular Cheeseman E-Chat and  E-News (Winter) during the year and participate in two work parties. There are family membership options too.

Ready to carve up the slopes more often and at a fraction of the cost?

Adult members must be parents or legal guardians of the youth members.  Additional youth members of the same family may be added to a family pass, to a maximum of 6 members per family pass

Work Parties

Through working together and contributing our time and skills, the club is able to keep skiing affordable. Every year, by doing two work parties over summer, you get a generous rebate off your sub. By contributing a bit of time and energy, you not only help maintain and improve our facilities but also forge lasting friendships and create fun, memorable experiences.

Some maintenance tasks depend on people-power (many hands make light work) and others such as electrical work and marketing may require some specialist knowledge. Let us know what skills you could contribute.  Explore some work party photos to see what’s involved.

Look out for work party dates that will be advertised in the E-Chat and E-News and contact the organiser to register. Check details about start times, meeting place and what tools etc. to bring. Overnight accommodation is available free of charge for work parties. Everyone brings their own food. If staying overnight then the evening meal is usually communal. The typical meal is roast chicken pieces and vegetables. It’s a combined effort to prepare the evening meal and clean up.

Hey – why limit yourself to the minimum 2 days? You’ll get vouchers that can be used for accommodation or ski/board lessons for any additional completed work party days.

Work parties are one of the unique aspects of belonging to a Club. We all benefit from the team effort!

Q: Do kids have to do work parties?

A: No, just adults and students need to do work parties.
