2010 Ski-a-thon

March 16th, 2010

What another great weekend we had at Mammoth for the Ski-a-Thon. We had a lot of students, families & instructors come up on the trip.

Since we have had more interest from students wanting to snowboard, Karey put on a great snowboard clinic on Friday morning for our snowboarding instructors. We put on a full day of lessons on Saturday before a well deserved Pot-Luck dinner. Come Sunday morning Brent had setup a challenging slalom course straight down the toughest part of Sesame Street.

I don’t know who was the fastest or who made the most runs, one thing is for sure everyone had a good time. Enjoy the pictures Bernhard & Karen sent in.
