Ski club a great opportunity for students

The group was there with Union’s Ski and Snowboard Club, which provides students with discounted lift tickets and transportation to various ski resorts around the Northeast.

The Ski and Snowboard Club is open to all Union students who have a passion for skiing and snowboarding. The club’s main mission is to bring together students who love to ski and snowboard, enabling them to bond and pursue their interests.

This club gives students the opportunity to go on skiing and snowboarding adventures each Saturday for the discounted price of $20. Union’s Ski and Snowboard Club provides students with a lift ticket and transportation to and from the mountain. This is an incredible deal, because a traditional full-day lift ticket at a large resort can sometimes cost close to $100.

Not only does the club offer trips to local mountains, but on occasion, trips are taken to mountains throughout the Northeast.

The bus usually leaves early, around 6 a.m. on Saturdays, and returns around 7 p.m. that same day.

As an added bonus, the club also offers a free trip every Thursday evening to Jiminy Peak, where students get to enjoy night skiing and snowboarding in Western Massachusetts.

So far, students have taken trips to Killington, Okemo and Stowe, all in Vermont. It’s a great way for ski and snowboard lovers to venture off Union’s campus and enjoy the conditions, no matter their skill level.

Students who have a passion for winter sports should take advantage of this opportunity to ski and snowboard twice a week at a very reasonable price.

If you are a student interested in joining the club, email one of the club’s presidents, James Molloy ’17 or Nolan Lescalleet ’17, for information about upcoming trips.

The two of them travel on every trip, assuring students that if something were to go wrong, they would be happy to assist.
