87 E 42nd St
New York City, New York 10017

Details: Here's the skinny --

We meet at Grand Central at 9 AM to buy our tickets and board the 9:40 train to Patterson, NY.
We will arrive in Patterson around 11:30 to meet the shuttle bus which will take us to the Thunder Ridge Ski Resort.
We will then get everyone setup with rental equipment of either skis or a snowboard, your choice of course!! ( even though snowboarders rule! )
We will then ski or ride from noon to 2 pm at which point we will all meet for lunch. After lunch we will ski/ride again until 6 pm. I am more than willing to help anyone learn to ski or snowboard and lessons are also available for extra cost.
At 6 pm we will reconvene at the rental shop and turn in all our equipment to catch the 6:45 train back to NYC.
We will arrive back at Grand Central at 8:45 with wonderful stories to tell of your amazing day at Thunder Ridge!!

Why: Do you love to ski or snowboard? Have you never been, but wanted to try? Do you like to laugh at people falling? Then we have the Meetup for you!
