Special for Ski, Snowboard Fans

Wicked winter weather is causing students to think about the ski and snowboard club.

“Ski club was formed last year, also, it is a very successful club,” Student Activities Coordinator Patrick McKamy said. “We focus on the Smuggler’s Notch trip in December, and then we try to do a separate trip in the spring, but it’s very tough going and trying to get the pieces together.”

The Student Activities office in The Banks Student Life Center offers trips to Sno Mountain in Scranton (on Tuesdays?) .  Buses leave campus at 5 p.m. and return at 9:30 p.m.

Lift tickets cost $10. Although students have already enjoyed a major ski trip to Smuggler’s Notch in Vermont, there is still plenty of opportunity to get out on the powder and do some skiing or snowboarding, Mckamy said.

Snowboarding is on the mind of first year student David D’Achille.

“I’ve been snowboarding for about six years, and prior to that I skied, so I’m really an experienced snow guy,” D’Achille said. “Also, I’m really excited to do some snowboarding here and would definitely spread the news about ski club to friends.”

With skiing and snowboarding in prime season, McKamy hopes students will participate. He encourages students to read flyers posted throughout campus or inquire about trips at the Student Activities office.
