The Glen Cove High School Ski Club held its first trip of the year to Windham Mountain in the Catskills on Jan. 10.
Sunny skies greeted the 45 members of the club, but so did temperatures hovering in the single digits. Despite the bitter cold, the conditions on the mountain were fantastic and new snow had fallen. All of the club members, including 13 students who are brand-new to the sport, had a great day.
"I love skiing with the experts and the die-hard skiers in the club, but I'm even more excited to see so many students trying out skiing and snowboarding,” Ski Club adviser Christopher Barry said. “This club is all about exposing kids to a healthy, outdoor activity that will hopefully turn into a lifelong love for them.”
The Ski Club's next stop is the annual return to Mount Snow, Vermont on the weekend of Jan. 30. Another day trip is penciled in for March 7. If fundraising goes according to plan, a second trip to Vermont will be in the works as well.
