We can't wait to see you in January!  Registration will be offered online or using the paper forms, but it's not open yet. We'll keep you updated.
The Service Project and Snow Activites

Indicate on your registration spreadsheet that you are interested in a service activity on Sunday of the retreat and we’ll be in touch about numbers and activities as the event gets closer. Your whole group doesn’t need to participate in the service activity, but you need to arrange transportation and adult supervision for any youth who will participate. We hope to partner with organizations that address local health, food, education, and housing needs.

On Sunday, skiing, snowboarding, and other snow activities are available around Blowing Rock and Boone, but they are not organized through WYR or Blowing Rock Conference Center. Group leaders should contact local ski companies for rates and activities (including tubing locations). Here are some local places groups have used in the past.

Jonas Ridge (tubing) 828-733-4155
Sugar Mountain (tubing, ice-skating) 800-SUGARMT
Appalachian Ski Mountain (skiing, snowboarding) (800) 322-2373
