A coed boarding and day school for grades 4-9

Where most classrooms end, ours begin.

Skiing & Snowboarding

Our long winter season provides plenty of time to ski and snowboard. With our own ski hill, rope tow and miles of trails, we offer telemark, alpine and Nordic skiing, as well as snowboarding without having to leave campus.

All students are given the opportunity to ski or snowboard, all at various levels. Many of our students are new to skiing and snowboarding when they enroll. Others who are interested in racing or intensive training benefit from the world-class coaching available through NYSEF. On Tuesdays, the whole school spends the afternoon skiing at nearby Whiteface Mountain. We also offer weekend outings to other alpine and Nordic ski centers.

Toward the end of winter term, we hold our traditional Skimeister, an afternoon of Nordic, downhill, freestyle, and biathlon events on campus. Many "medalists" of different ages and disciplines are proud of their cookie "medals" at the end of the event.
