York Prep is offering a Ski Trip on Saturday, February 2, to Windham Mountain. This is a one-day ski trip that welcomes York Prep students of all experience levels. Those who have never skied or snowboarded before will be required to take a ski or snowboard lesson at the start of the day. Those who would like to refresh their skills may also take a lesson. Students are required to wear the appropriate ski/snowboard clothing which includes a jacket, gloves, hat, face mask, and goggles/sunglasses. Helmets are optional.

  • Return: Saturday, February 2, between 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the south corner of 86th Street and York Avenue.


  • • $77.00 – Cost of trip
  • • $83.00 – Cost of trip + ski lesson; lift pass allows access to lower part of mountain only (perfect for beginners)
  • +

  • • $30.00 – Cost of rentals through Emilio’s Ski Shop (for those student without skis)

    Students who do not own ski/snowboard equipment are required to reserve their rentals in advance through a local ski shop. The advantage of reserving rentals through EMILIO’S ski shop is that the equipment will be loaded onto the bus directly from the store without students having to take the rentals back and forth to the store for pickup and return. In addition, the majority of ski shops in Manhattan do not rent for one-day trips; in general, most only offer season rentals.

    Rentals through EMILIO’S SKI SHOP should be reserved one week before the trip. Students are required to go to the ski shop in person for a fitting and submit rental payment of $30. (The ski shop cannot determine fittings over the phone). Students who have not secured their equipment in advance will not be permitted to attend the trip and payment is non-refundable.

    Emilio’s Ski Shop is located at:
    112-32 Queens Blvd
    Forest Hills, NY 11375

    Directions: Take the F-train to the “75th Avenue” stop in Queens. It is approximately 15 stops after the last stop in Manhattan (63rd St/Lexington Avenue Station).

    Alternative: In an effort to assist parents, one of the teacher chaperones will escort students to Emilio’s ski shop on Wednesday, January 16th in order for students to get fitted for equipment. We will depart at 3:30 p.m. and will return on the F-train as a group to Manhattan. Students will be free to get off the train at their appropriate stop. If you would like your son/daughter to get fitted in this way, please send him/her with $30 in cash to pay for the rental on that day. Also, please e-mail Jennifer Campo to inform York Prep that you give your son/daughter permission to go Emilio’s Ski Shop after school. Students must have the signed Liability and Permission form at this time (along with the $30 rental fee) or may submit it in advance.


    Please make your check payable to York Preparatory School and submit to Jennifer Campo by Wednesday, January 16th.


    Please read and sign the agreement and return with payment to Jennifer Campo by Wednesday, January 16th.
