SYI does NOT provide transportation to the slopes.

“Since the club started four years ago, we average 15 weeks of skiing/snowboarding per season,” said ski club advisor Hannes Dziak.  “If Sundays don’t work for you, there are other options available at the club rate, so come join us on Sundays as we ski the Valley’s 58 slopes spread over four mountain faces and enjoy the 750 foot vertical.”
