We will try to fit in one ski trip before December Holiday break if Belleayre Mtn. is open.  The first 3 Saturday trips are to Belleayre so that beginners can take at least 2 ski/boarding lessons for $15 each 1-hour lesson. Then we go to Catamount for a Friday twilight trip and if we have enough members enrolled we will go on a late February Saturday for the 5th trip.

    Our last trip was Saturday 2/24/18 to Gore Mtn. and those that journied north with us found spring conditions and no rain! The view from atop Gore was stunning looking out over the Adirondack high peaks.  

    Our end of the season Pizza party was Thursday March 1st 2018 and students expressed why they loved being part of the ski club this past year including: "I never liked winter but now I'm looking forward to next winter and boarding with the Haviland Ski Club" and "I've made new friends while enjoying being outdoors and learning to snowboard"

    Those joining the Haviland SKi & Boarding Club next year remember to get your Potter Brothers rentals in August the earlier the better the price! Thanks to all the parents who donated food for our pizza party!
