A special THANK YOU to those who volunteer their time and treasure and support NYSEF, we are grateful for your commitment!

Support the future of snowsports!


"We want to thank our generous supporters for investing financial resources throughout the season. With your help, NYSEF awarded $115,000 in scholarship during the 2018- 2019 season. We are very proud of this! However, the most challenging issue faced by programs across the country is a high drop-out rate as young athletes move up through the age classifications. No one seems to have found a solution, but it is clear that affordability is one, and possibly the most important. Whether you attend a social event or buy a raffle ticket from an athlete, you are helping us in our efforts to boost participation. Many thanks to all! Oh, and if you’re the lucky ticket, you may walk off with a new mountain bike. Looking forward to a great season!"- Board Chairman, Greg Harden
