Ski or snowboard at many ski resorts this winter with your friends - beginners are welcome! Trip destinations vary so watch for posters at the middle school and high school and listen to announcements at school.
The Town of Bethlehem Parks and Recreation Department sponsors a Ski Club for high school and middle school students who reside in the Town of Bethlehem or Bethlehem Central School District. The ski clubs are supervised by Mr. Tyler (M.S. Room 142, 518-439-7460) at the middle school and Mr. Mooney (H.S. Room A109, 518-439-4921) at the high school.
