The Ski and Snowboard Club, along with sponsors Mrs. Ranieri and Mr. Yoder, traveled to Blue Mountain on Jan 8, its first trip in two years. Upon arrival, members witnessed the snow guns working at full blast in preparation for the Saturday rush. Blue Mountain boasts 40 trails including the newly opened Free Fall, a black diamond hit among club members. Skiers and snowboards enjoyed The Waffle Cabin at the conclusion of their trip. The club will go to Blue again on Jan. 22 and on Feb. 5.
