The Glen Cove High School Ski Club recently returned from their first trip of the season. Fifty students, along with staff and parent chaperones, ventured north to Mount Snow, Vermont for two days of skiing and snowboarding.
"As always, the trip was an overwhelming success," said Ski Club adviser Christopher Barry. "The students had a chance to do something healthy in the outdoors that they love, and we simultaneously introduced about a dozen students to winter mountain sports for the first time."
The students also enjoyed bumping into Principal Antonio Santana during their trip. Santana was at Mount Snow with his family.
“It was great seeing students up on the mountain, both enjoying the beautiful scenery and engaging in an activity that is not accessible to many,” Santana said. “Some of our students have developed into proficient skiers due to the club. It’s a great experience.”
The Ski Club is planning one more trip from March 17-19 to Mount Snow. The club meets on Thursdays at 2:30 p.m. in the high school’s TV studio. New members are always encouraged to join.
