2023 Ski Trip – Update #2

Midway through the trip, we are pleased to see so many students improving their skiing and enjoying time with friends. Besides the many teachers and administrators who have come on the trip, we are very thankful to have three former JFKS students volunteer their time to join us: their professional ski and medical expertise make this trip so much better for the 130 students. 

Please see the list below are some of the students’ observations about the ski trip. They were collected Saturday morning during breakfast.
