If you would prefer to talk to our staff ahead of time, we can refer you to a local dealer in Stamford. Students can pack a meal for each trip or bring spending money and enjoy dinner at the ski lodge. What a great way for your child to spend a Friday night with friends! We travel by Coach Bus with a movie each way. If a trip is canceled due to poor weather conditions we will try to reschedule for another date!
