      The membership term is from May 1 to April 30. Anyone who joins or renews their membership within 60 days of May 1 will have their membership expire on April 30 of the following year.

          Rewards Program to be Discontinued

          As we go into the new 2023-24 membership year on May 1, we will be discontinuing the Rewards program. Anyone with volunteer reward points will be able to redeem them until the Corn Roast on August 27. After this date, the A2 ski club will open a club store where different items can be purchased.
