NYSEF RACE & FREESTYLE COMPETITIVE PROGRAMS

NYSEF programs will go on sale mid-August and will be open for enrollment via the web at www.nysef.org. Please make sure to take the time to visit the website for more information about NYSEF and the programs that they offer. 

We are both pleased and excited to announce our new partnership with NYSEF, New York Ski Educational Foundation.  For those of you that are unfamiliar with NYSEF, they are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides educational opportunities for children and young adults through athletic training in snowsports. The goal of NYSEF is to “provide opportunities for athletes of all ages to reach their potential in snow sports – alpine skiing, freestyle skiing, snowboarding, ski jumping, cross country skiing, Nordic combined, and biathlon – through professional guidance and financial support.”

While we have developed many programs to nurture our youth and adults at the mountain over the past years, we feel that the partnership with NYSEF will only help further provide opportunities to our athletes while providing them with a much larger support network and opportunities to develop skills and shine in their respective areas.

NYSEF has a longstanding history of success in competitive skiing at all levels including two recent Olympians, (two-time medalist) Andrew Weibrecht and Tommy Biesemeyer. In 2018, six NYSEF Alumni participated in the 2018 games in Peyong Change, Korea. NYSEF Alumni continue to compete in World Cup Circuits, on National Teams, in World Championships and more. Current NYSEF athletes are given unique opportunities to interact with these athletes and learn from them throughout the season.
