Many students do not know about the thrilling Ski and Snowboard Club and how much it has to offer. The club, established in the 1970’s, is sponsored by Ms. Cheryl Sorensen, a World Languages teacher at East Campus.

She exclaims, “The club has been popular ever since inception. Students enjoy it because it is something different from the norm. Many schools in the area don’t even offer this club, so it is very unique!”

The club is in session during November through February. Unlike most LTHS clubs, this club does not meet weekly, but rather only when special trips are being discussed for students to attend.

Because the club is in short, seasonal session, it seems like students are not aware of the minimal requirements of experience needed in the club.

Lena AbuSafieh, an LTHS junior, claims she’s never heard of a club like this after being in LTHS for 3 years. But Alex Matteucci, another junior, has an opposite experience and fell in love with the sport.

“I’ve done the club freshman and sophomore year, and I am planning on doing it this year and next year. We made so many memories and even improved on my skills,” claims Alex.

The Ski and Snowboard Club includes trips to nearby resorts such as Granite Park, but one of the most anticipated annual trips on this year’s agenda is Sundown Mountain.

Ms. Sorensen states, “The kids love it because they are on the hill from 10pm to 3am. We have a blast!”

The best part is that students can join throughout the season, and it is not necessary to attend every trip or have their own equipment.

So don’t be a couch potato this winter, and be active outdoors by joining the Ski and Snowboard Club.
