Icy Adventures: Secondary Snow Trip Highlights

Our Secondary snow trip was an absolute blast! Our prayers for snow were answered big time! We arrived at Smiggins to see fresh, falling snow. The students hit the slopes like pros, shredding it on skis and snowboards, and even the beginners rocked it after some initial jitters.

They stacked it, they laughed, they cheered each other on, they built some epic snowmen and even had the incredible opportunity to meet Australian snowboarder & Winter Olympian, Valentino Guseli!

The evenings were all about card games, snow ball fights, cozying up by the fire, sharing stories, sipping on hot chocolate and feeling incredibly grateful for the snow-covered wonderland surrounding us. Brian & Julie from Southern Cross Alpine Lodge rocked, keeping us warm and well fed during our stay.

The real MVP of the trip was Aiden's phone which survived being (accidentally) buried in the snow for over 10 hours.
