What we’re about
Welcome to the New York Backpackers!
We're a club of outdoor enthusiasts who come together for day hikes, weekend backpacking trips, and longer excursions. We love all outdoor sports such as rock climbing, ice climbing, kayaking, alpine, nordic, or telemark skiing, snowboarding and biking.
Our Club provides all kinds of adventures year round. Please check out our past events and sign up future events.

Join us on December 3rd for The 5Point Adventure Film Festival. This cinematic adventure is coming to the newly renovated Dolby Atmos Auditorium at the Mamaroneck Cinema in Mamaroneck, New York. We believe that stories of adventure have the power to ignite positive change.
The screening of the Film Festival will be from 10am to 12:30pm. We will also have some CatRock Students and Alumni share their experiences in the outdoors and the impact that the outdoors has on their life.

- Killington December TripNeeds location
It was Chris tradition to have this trip every December but sadly he moved away. I want the restart this tradition. So we will book a few condos for Killington. I sadly can't get lift tickets. That is up to you but I will book the condos. The will book the Fall line condos and the Killington Grand condos. The prices are different for both. I need to have everyone's money by Monday Dec 4th. If you have a large group you can message me and I can either point where you can book your own condo or I can book it for you or I can tell you how to how much to send me for the whole condo.
This price is per person. You might have to share a queen bed or a sofa bed. If you want a specific accommodation you can contact me but I will probably ask for double the money if you want the whole bed. You can share it with a friend but if you are coming solo you can ask arrange with the people in condo where you are going to sleep.
For passes your best best is to get an Ikon Pass. You can pay for a second pass or for a 2 or 3 or 4 day pass on Ikon.
Price per person for the Fall Line Condos is $180 per person for 2 nights.
Price per person for the Killington Grand is $320 per person for 2 nights.
You can Venmo me to firstname.lastname@example.org or PayPal to email@example.com
We will carpool up there. I will set up a spreadsheet for this and I will also set up a chat on WhatsApp for the trip. I will update this event this weekend with both. Your departure time on Friday depends on who you are carpooling with.
