As the weather outside gets colder, many CB students prepare for the upcoming ski and snowboard season.
The Ski and Snowboard Club, headed by Ms. Safford, sets up trips to ski resorts for students to go on every year. The club provides buses as well as support for students attempting to learn how to ski or snowboard. There is no skill requirement to go on the trips, anyone who is willing to pay for their lift ticket is allowed to join.
Max Pedrotti (‘14) gave the Talon some insight about how fun the Ski and Snowboard trips really are.
“I look forward to the trips all year,” he says. “Although I just started snowboarding they are still a blast”
When Max first joined the club he had never actually skied or snowboarded before, but this was no obstacle. The ski and snowboard club is open to participants of all skill ranges and previous experience.
The first of their trips this year will take place at Northstar resort on December 7.
While normally Northstar is one of the most expensive and luxurious resorts, the Ski and Snowboard club offers students a moderately cheaper price because they buy their tickets in bulk. This is a fantastic opportunity for students who want to experience a fun day with their fellow friends on the slopes.
Austin Ryu (‘14), club president and chief organizer encourages all students that are interested to come talk to him and to come to the future meetings.
“The club is open to anyone that wants to join, if you have any questions just come and talk to me,” the leader states.
While being a very active club, the Ski and Snowboard Club also has a friendly community.
If you are unable to make it on December 7 for their Northstar trip don’t worry — there is another tripped planned for January 19 at Sierra.
Although it is smaller than Northstar, Sierra still provides students with the opportunity to spend the days exploring the slopes with their friends and classmates.
Overall the Ski and Snowboard Club provides students with a fun outlet to spend time with their fellow students and teachers. Whether you are a professional skier, or if you have never been and are willing to start, the Ski and Snowboard Club is definitely worth checking out.
