Year-End Message from Executive Director, John Norton

As we round the corner into a New Year, I’m extremely proud to reflect on what NYSEF has accomplished throughout the last 12 months. While I’m thankful for much more, three highlights stick out — none of which would have been possible without your support:

  • Development in the Catskills with new alpine and freeride programs at Belleayre Mountain
  • Growth of our scholarship and athlete support program with over $75,000 of funding distributed this year
  • Continued expansion of our community which now serves over 500 athletes across 5 different venues
Whether it be our introductory, one-day programs offered in all disciplines or our full-time, high-level programs offered through our Junior Development Winter Term Program, I’m proud of the opportunities we’re able to provide to our athletes and to the greater community. Your support helps ensure we can continue our trend as a leader in snowsports. 
John Norton
