Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 16, 2011 12:52 am

New York State Department of Motor Vehicles just took it up a notch when they announced that the redesigned I SKI NY custom license plate will be made available, Tuesday, Nov. 22, to motorists statewide. They hope to not only show their enthusiasm for this popular winter sport but also help support winter recreational facilities in New York State. Ten dollars of the initial fee will go to help support ski areas statewide.

The I SKI NY plate will be available in both passenger and commercial class, but only through the trade association Ski Areas of New York. You can call the organization at (315) 696-6550 or visit their Web site at

Those who have the previous version of the plate will be able to upgrade to the latest design for $28.75, either on-line or by calling Custom Plates at (518) 402-4838. First-time registrants can purchase the I SKI NY plate with a standard plate number assigned by DMV for an initial fee of $70. The annual fee of $31.25 is in addition to the standard registration renewal fee. The plate can also be personalized with two to six character, including spaces, for an initial fee of $101.25. The annual renewal fee for a personalized I SKI NY plate is $62.50.

In addition to being available for passenger class vehicles, the I SKI NY plate will also be available with the International Symbol of Access (ISA) on it for any registrant with a disability who qualifies for such a plate. Any individual qualifying for an ISA must contact Custom Plates before submitting his/her application.

So give back to a worthwhile cause while celebrating the greatest sports on Earth!
