Alpine skiing, also known as downhill skiing, typically takes place on a piste at a ski resort. Typically when someone thinks of New York, you imagine the hustle and bustle of the boroughs. However, New York State offers numerous ski areas, with many being closer and easy to access from the city than you may think. Looking for a new team bonding activity, EP took a 2 hour bus ride from Times Square to Windham Mountain in the Catskills area of upstate New York.
The weather proved to be a perfect day for the slopes, with picturesque views. For some, it was their first time skiing. While for the rest it was time to brush up on their skills. Either way, we found it was great team building exercise heading down the slopes together. After a few hours of skiing, the day finished up at the lodge with good food and warm drinks before our smooth bus ride back to the big city. The day proved to be fun for all and we think we might have started a new winter tradition!
