Winter Adventure Days

    ​Winter Adventures Days (WADs) is a special annual enrichment program in which students learn and experience winter sports and outdoor education.


    This event is held in January and is sponsored by NES and the NES PTA. 

    Over two days, students will have the opportunity to participate in activities at our local Eldora Mountain Resort, the Nederland Ice and Racquet Park, and at Mud Lake. All students will participate one day at Eldora and one day at the ice rink/Mud Lake. At Eldora, the students will have the option of alpine or Nordic (classic or skate) skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing with an Eldora instructor. On the other day, all students will participate in half­ day ice activities at the rink and half­ day outdoor education at Mud Lake taught by Wild Bear Mountain Ecology Center.
