Back this winter by popular demand for the twelfth straight season! This Friday night ski program is open to students grades 4 through 8 and will be offered on four Friday evenings this winter. We will travel to Thunder Ridge Ski Area in Patterson New York to enjoy an evening of skiing and/or snow boarding. If your child does not know how to ski or they just want to brush up on their skills, lessons are available. Ski rentals are also available. If you want to rent a snowboard at the ski area, you will be required to put down a $350.00 deposit on a credit card that evening at the ski area. 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.
