March Madness Ski Trip

It was March 7 and it was cold and the snow was coming down steadily and students started arriving at the wall with all their snowboarding/skiing gear. We were almost all together at the departure time but there was just one friend that we needed to wait on because she was coming from Columbus and the roads were backed up and traffic was slow due to the weather. As soon as this awesome friend, whom everyone ended up loving, got here, we took off on a 4 hour drive to a cabin near Seven Springs Resort. The first night was a little slow someone put the movie Out Cold on and people either watched it or went off to bed. There was also a mini dance party in the kitchen at midnight. The next day we had a harty breakfast and piled back into the van for the drive to the Resort. Once there Tim and Brady got everybody their tickets for the day, laid down some ground rules, and gave us a time and place to meet back up, then let us loose. Everyone went out to shred up the slopes before lunch. Around 1 o’clock students started to come in for lunch and warm up a bit. Soon though they were back out on the slopes tearing it up. Before everyone realized it, it was time to meet up and get back to the vans. Malia was sent out into the freezing cold to start the vans and scrape the ice off of the windshild. As soon as this was done we set off for the cabin. The drive was a slow one since we were driving in the dark and the wind was really picking up and blowing snow into the line of sight. When we got back a couple people made a wicked spaghetti dinner while the leaders of the trip took firsties on showering. After dinner we all cleaned up and hung out playing cards before heading off to bed, everyone was super tired from a sweet day out on the moutain. We woke up had a good breakfast, made sure to clean up the cabin and we all jumped back into the vans and started the long trip home. It was quite the fun trip.
