Athens, OH 13 November 2020 –
As winter looms around the corner and the cold air sweeps through the midwest, I always tend to get a little excited. Winter brings the cold and the cold brings the snow and the snow opens up the ski slopes.
Over the winter I think it is very important to find a hobby you can do to get out of the house. The summer presents many opportunities for hobbies, many of which I enjoy, including golfing, swimming, and watching baseball games. However, there is one thing in the summer I am never able to do…and that is go skiing.
So, as the winter comes, I get excited for my yearly ski trip to the East coast. Vermont and northern New York has the best skiing on the East coast and receives well above the annual average snowfall every year. I only learned how to ski in high school, but I enjoy hitting the slopes to shred some pow whenever I can.
Once I got to OU, I have taken a yearly trip to Vermont to ski with some of my close friends. Each year we add a new person to the trip and are currently at 8 people. We drive through the night to arrive at the slopes first thing in the morning.
I am even more excited for this year, mainly due to the lack of trips with COVID. The picture is from our trip last year at Killington Mountain in Vermont.
