Members of SMC buy into the 75 years of fun on the Manganui Ski Area.
The book that comes with your joining (while available) details the heroics of founding members who pioneered the establishment of skiing/riding in Taranaki.
SMC Membership entitles you to the following
There is no joining fee for SMC, just annual subs. Seasons passes are optional but represent outstanding value for money, especially if purchased at the ‘discounted’ rate. All season passes are due by 31 May.
SMC is again imposing a $20 levy to family/couple/senior memberships on this years seasons' subs, to help cover our insurance premiums, which have increased exponentially over the last few years; a result of, amongst other cost increases, the Whakapapa Knoll Ridge Cafe arson/fire of Feb 2009, the Christchurch Earthquakes of 2010/2011, and the Tongariro Eruptions of 2012.
a working bee qualifier is now applied to 'discounted' season passes. Working bees are required to be completed by 31 May to qualify for the 'discounted' season pass rate, otherwise full price season pass rate applies.

Season Pass holders still need to get a lift pass on T-bar operational days from the canteen. The canteen staff will have a list of season pass holders, so please have your club ID/swipe card as proof of identification.
Lockers are now free, you will need to have your name clearly identified on the front of your locker and a new date written on it each year when you pay your subs.
Lockers without a LOCK will be assumed free to use.
As a member of the Stratford Mountain Club (SMC), your new (introduced in 2016) ID Card incorporates your Membership and Season Pass status; it also features your access to the SMC facilities. The facilities will be locked 24/7 (even during operations), therefore you will need your ID Card on you when at the ski area.
