The Holy Name Ski Club returned to school triumphantly Thursday evening after their annual trip to the north. This year, the club visited Waterville Valley and had an outstanding day on the mountain. Lift lines were non-existent, and conditions were outstanding with snow falling throughout the day adding to an already significant amount of powder which had fallen the previous evening.
The club, which travels to Mt. Wachusett on six Tuesday evenings throughout the winter in addition to their one major trip to a resort in either Vermont or New Hampshire, has had a great year and has welcomed many new members from grades seven and nine, including several participants who had never skied or snowboarded before. Like most of the clubs, groups, and teams at Holy Name, beginners are more than welcome to the ski club, and newcomers are immediately incorporated and made to feel at home.
The club would like to publicly thank Dr. Audette, Mrs. Kenendy, and all of their teachers for allowing them to miss class time for this trip. Beyond all of the fun that was had, the club shared a wonderful sense of community and pride in travelling together and representing the school in a positive fashion. We also experienced a great day outdoors in the White Mountains connecting to nature and finding the spirit around every turn!
