WILMINGTON, NY – In honor of its 50th anniversary, the New York Ski Educational Foundation (NYSEF) commissioned a special commemorative painting by former NYSEF/Gore coach Ingrid Van Slyke to create a one-of-a-kind NYSEF Ski Poster that is now available for pre-order.

Van Slyke is a longtime NYSEF community member, having attended Mountain House school, and then going on to coach for NYSEF’s Gore Program. She holds an MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Layering the ridgelines of Whiteface, Gore, and Belleayre, as well as the Nordic venues against the backdrop of a bluebird sky, we see four athletes representing alpine, freeride, ski jumping, and our Nordic disciplines. Across their bibs, a small easter egg is found: 1973, the year the New York Ski Educational Foundation began.

“It was a pleasure to create this painting and bring NYSEF’s vision of combining its history with a bright future to fruition,” Van Slyke said.
Northwood School’s Michael Aldridge crafted the graphic framework to layer on Ingrid’s stunning painting, creating a one-of-a-kind commemorative poster.
Poster prints are $100 each and proceeds will go directly toward ensuring NYSEF can continue to provide an outstanding experience for young athletes pursuing their snowsports dreams. Each poster is 18×24” and printed on high-quality paper ready for framing. The first printing will have a limited run of 90 prints. We will be printing a second run based on demand.

If you would like your poster mailed to you, please select the $12 mailing fee option in the purchase form. You will receive a notification when your print is ready for pick-up. Prints will be mailed ASAP, but we cannot guarantee a Christmas delivery.
