Winter Sports (JISP)

Winter won't get us down!

Every year, students at JVS have the opportunity to ski or ride at Stratton Mountain. They spend the WHOLE afternoon every Tuesday from January to March learning, playing and sliding on snow! It's a great way to enjoy our beautiful area and try out a winter sport that keep our students happy and active during the colder, darker months. JISP is available to all JVS students and homeschooled children (living in Jamaica).

All students are eligible for a VERY discounted pass (see sign up below) that includes eight Tuesday afternoons and eight full free-ski/ride Sundays. Parents/guardians must provide transportation to and from Stratton Mountain. Instructors/on-snow chaperones will be provided on Tuesdays.
