Youth & Family Ski Retreat

February 16 - February 19
  • This event has passed.


Ski Retreat is one of E-Free Youth and Family’s capstone events of the year, and is always a blast! We stay at Schweitzer Chapel at Schweitzer Mountain Resort, which has plenty of room for our large group of families and students.

Who should come? All students in 6th-12th grade, as well as their families. Elementary and below need to be accompanied by a parent.

Each year, we have plenty of individual students who come, as well as several families. Some ski the whole time, while others take part in planned activities and rest time at the chapel. Each evening, we come together for worship and time in the Word.

Families who come are encouraged to plan a meal (or more!), which helps bring your costs down! (see Discounts under Cost breakdown). We hope you can make this exciting and growing weekend!

Paperwork Needed:

All under 18 will need a Medical Release Form up-to-date with E-Free.

Download the Medical Release Form >

Additionally, any students renting gear or taking lessons will need a signed Rental/Lesson Release Form before the trip. The only exception to this is if a parent is attending with the student since it can be filled out on the mountain.
