Shadow Ridge High School’s Ski and Snowboard Club is returning for the new season! February 5, 2022 will commence the annual Ski and Snowboarding Club’s day trip to Brian Head, Utah. The trip is open to all skiers and snowboarders of all abilities and experience levels.

The price of the trip is $185, which includes a full-day lift ticket, a ski or snowboard rental, and transportation. Participants are also responsible for bringing their own money for food, as food is not provided on the trip. Students going on the trip are allowed to bring their own equipment, but obviously rentals will be available at the ski resort. Students who have their own equipment will have to pay $150 which covers transportation and a lift ticket for the day. If students have their own equipment and a Brian Head Season Pass, they will only have to pay $75.

The students will then take this ticket to the banker and pay an additional $50 for the trip. The $25 deposit is due by November 25th and all fees for the trip are due December 17th.

Senior, Stephanie Seymore, who participated in the Ski and Snowboard Club in previous years stated, “It’s interesting to see your classmates outside of school. I’m definitely not excited for the bus, the last time we had a trip, our advisor only brought one movie, so we had to watch Ready Player OneĀ eight times.”

This trip will be a great way for students to relax and blow off some steam, especially since it’s a three day weekend. CCSD will not have school Monday, February 7th.

“I’m most excited about spending a fun time bonding with my friends. I love getting out of the Vegas scenery for the day,” said Ellie Reese, senior.
