"The Ski and Snowboard Adventure program is one of the highlights of my year. Not only do I love to ski, but I love to see new people learn this amazing skill every year. Seeing someone who doesn’t even know how to step into a pair of skis or a snowboard on day one racing past me on a black diamond on day four is unbelievable. However, this program is more than a group of teens learning or enhancing a skill, each year I see a group of strangers become a group of friends. Every year I hear about the teens involved meeting up after the program and becoming good friends. In my opinion, that is what the program is all about. Forget about school and homework, at the Ski and Snowboard Adventure teens are able to get away from Chicago, spend their winter break on the slopes skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing, they try out some of the best indoor waterparks that the Wisconsin Dells has to offer, and leave with a new group of lifelong Jewish friends from across the Chicagoland area."
