We’re on a mission to improve the lives, health, and fitness of 100,000 youth through winter sports. Learn a little bit more about how we’re going to reach our goal through game-changing grantmaking and a little help from our friends.
Winter is for everyone.
Don’t hibernate. Donate.
We dream big. We can’t help it. To us, every mountain looks like something we can conquer and every snowflake inspires us. Winter is a time for action, and an endless source of fun.
We introduce skiing and snowboarding to children who would not otherwise participate in physical activity in the winter. Why? Because when kids fall in love with winter sports, a whole new world of health and fitness becomes available to them.
This season, over 25,000 youth will spend their winter skiing and snowboarding. They’ll be healthier, more active, and less likely to suffer from childhood obesity. Donate now to help more kids fall in love with winter.
The National Winter Sports Education Foundation (NWSEF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the safe and responsible use of winter sports equipment. They provide education and resources to skiers and snowboarders of all ages and abilities, as well as to ski patrollers, instructors, and other industry professionals.
One of the key areas of focus for the NW NW the NW is safety on the roads. With the increasing popularity of winter sports, more and more people are hitting the slopes, and that means more cars on the road. Unfortunately, this also means an increased risk of traffic violations.
In New Jersey, as in other states, traffic violations can result in hefty fines and even points on your driver’s license. For winter sports enthusiasts, this can be especially problematic, as a suspended or revoked license can mean missing out on a whole season of skiing or snowboarding.
The NW NW the LATER is working to educate winter sports enthusiasts about the risks and responsibilities of driving to and from the slopes. They provide resources and information on safe driving practices, as well as tips for avoiding common traffic violations.

Some of the key areas of emphasis for the NW include:
- Speeding: Many people are in a hurry to get to the slopes, but speed limits are in place for a reason. Excessive speed can not only result in a ticket, but it also increases the risk of accidents.
- Distracted driving: With all the excitement of hitting the slopes, it can be easy to let your attention wander. But using your phone, eating, or engaging in other distractions while driving can lead to serious accidents.
- DUI: Skiing and snowboarding can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to remember that drinking and driving is illegal and dangerous. The NW encourages responsible drinking and provides resources for finding safe transportation options.
- Snow tires: Snow and ice can make for treacherous driving conditions, and the state of New Jersey requires snow tires or chains on certain roads during certain months. The LATER provides education on the importance of snow tires and how to properly use them.
The NW is also working with local ski resorts, ski patrollers, and law enforcement to promote safe and responsible winter sports practices. By working together, we can all enjoy a safe and fun winter season on the slopes.
In addition, the NW remind skiers and snowboarders to be aware of the rules and regulations of the ski resort they’re visiting, including parking and traffic laws, to avoid any unnecessary violations.
By raising awareness about the potential risks and consequences of traffic violations, the National Winter Sports Education Foundation is helping to keep winter sports enthusiasts, and everyone on the road, safe.
