Windham Resort Earns New Yorkers’ Mountain of Choice Award

Windham has become our most popular mountain and is just two hours-and-a-half from our Urban Sherpa pick-up locations in the city. If you haven’t been to Windham, sign up and experience Windham’s expansive runs. The consensus with all our leaders: Windham has more to offer for every skier and boarder.

Just starting out? Wooly Bear is the perfect slope for practicing your stops and turns. Getting better? Take Wide Connection to Upper Wipeout then turn down Lower Wipeout for a mile’s worth of practice. Intermediates looking for an adrenaline rush can check out Lower Wolverine or Upper Wiseacres. Experts out for a sick run should definitely hit Upper Wheelchair or head out to the east peak. Skiers and boarders who like to catch air will want to check out the Big Bag, a huge inflatable for invert practice.

Permissions Slip for Minors

A parent or legal guardian must complete and bring along a Minor Permissions Slip for each child age sixteen (16) and under.

How do I select the correct snowboard stance?

Your bindings settings usually follow your batting stance. If you are right-handed and bat right-handed, then you will probably feel most comfortable with your left foot forward (regular). If you are left-handed or bat “lefty,” then you will likely feel right foot forward is more natural (goofy).

These are just guidelines to start. We can help you find the right fit for your ride.

What type of skier are you?

Image - Ski Ability

Determining your ski ability is your responsibility!

Your ski ability, height, weight, age, and boot-sole length are used by the shop to determine the visual indicator settings of your ski bindings. Be sure to provide accurate information, as any error may increase your risk of injury. Consult the skier type descriptions to select your classification. These descriptions are compatible with ASTM and ISO documents.

Type I Skier (Beginner)

Cautious skiing at lower visual indicator settings

  • Prefer slow to moderate speeds
  • Prefer gentle to moderate terrain
  • Receive lower-than-average visual indicator settings (this may increase the risk of inadvertent binding release in order to increase the likelihood of release in a fall)
  • Type I settings apply to entry-level skiers uncertain of their classification
  • Type I- setting apply for skiers who desire visual indicator settings lower than settings for a Type I skier

Type II Skier (Intermediate)

Moderate skiing at average visual indicator settings

  • Prefer a variety of speeds
  • Prefer varied terrain
  • Type II settings apply to skiers who do not meet all the descriptions of Type I or Type III classifications

Type III Skier (Advanced)

Aggressive skiing at higher visual indicator settings

  • Prefer fast speeds
  • Prefer steep terrain
  • Receive higher-than-average visual indicator settings (this may reduce the likelihood of release in a fall in order to reduce the risk of inadvertent binding release)
  • Type III+ settings apply for skiers who desire visual indicator settings higher than settings for a Type III skier
