One of the best things about winter is going outside to play in the snow! With that spirit, Ms. Larson and Mr. Tredinnick have started a Ski Club at St. Paul Prep for those students who would like to enjoy the many ski slopes around the Twin Cities area. The goal is to ski a couple of times a month on Fridays after school or Saturdays during the day. In addition, there will be possible trips over President’s Day weekend and during Spring Break. Ski Club welcomes all sorts of skiers, from beginners to experts. The only requirement is that you wear your warmest winter clothing! So far the group has gone to Alfton Alps and Welch Village with about 15-30 students participating.
Club highlights to this point include watching students try skiing for the first time (some who struggle more than others), as well as simply getting outside and enjoying the beautiful Minnesota winter. They even braved the -15 windchill! We are pleased to report that there have been no major injuries and everyone is having a fun.
Ski Club is still seeking members and now is a great time to join! Also, be sure to check out our website at www.stpaulprep.org to find out about the other clubs and opportunities that St. Paul Prep has to offer.
