  •  Snow Club Winter Kick-Off Sale

Hello YIS,
Snow Season is upon us, and ski hills are set to open in the coming weeks all over Japan.

If you are missing some gear to hit the slopes like gloves, coats, helmets, goggles, pants or even a snowboard, the YIS Snow Club will be partnering with Burton Snowboards for their Winter Kick-Off Sale, this Saturday December 2nd, from 10AM to 4PM at YCAC.

Lots of Burton gear will be discounted up to 50%, and all proceeds from the event will be donated to Chill Japan, a Japanese NPO that helps children who have been affected by natural disasters by providing them with fun activities like snowboarding.

Tell your parents, tell your friends. See you on Saturday! (Mr. McKeown)

Good Morning Everyone!

The Van der Poel collection is still going on, with only 4 days to go. Please try to contribute until the end of this week!

So, let’s keep up with the donations and the Christmas-ish spirit! 🎄 (Van Der Poel)
