Over President’s day weekend, the Tyrone’s Ski Club took their triennial trip to Smugglers Notch, Vermont. Twenty seven Tyrone students enjoyed a four day vacation skiing or snowbaording the mountain, swimming, snow tubing, and laser tagging.

Vermont was definitely a trip of a lifetime. The conditions were perfect and the views were insane. At one point you could look out and see Canada!”

“Vermont was definitely a trip of a lifetime. The conditions were perfect and the views were insane. At one point you could look out and see Canada!” said sophomore snowboarder Kelton Raabe.

Smugglers Notch is spread out across three different beautiful mountains, Morse, Madonna, and Sterling, students spent all day outside enjoying the amazing weather and fantastic conditions.

The club left that Thursday night and were on the road for 10 hours. After a growling trip, the kids and chaperones were ready to get out and breath the Vermont air right when they arrived. 

“The ride up took forever it felt like because sleeping on a bus is not very comfortable. Some laid across the floor, but I just stayed up and listened to music,” said sophomore skier Makenna Bauer.

The first day temperatures were in the 20’s but the wind became hard to bare. It blew a lot of the powder snow around to look like a blizzard. Many did not dare go up the mountain, but others, daredevils, decided to face it head on.

“The wind was ridiculous it made it extremely hard to ski because it blew the powder off the slopes causing it to be extremely icy, but the rest of the days were beautiful,” said junior skier Michael Stoner.

The trip was not only enjoyed by avid skiers and snowboarders, but also by students that came mainly for the friendship and atmosphere.

“I had skied before, but I wasn’t a huge fan. All of my friends were going, so I figured that I would just go to hang out. On the second day of the trip, I decided to snowboard and had an absolute blast. I can’t wait to go on the next trip,” said sophomore snowboarder Lucia Isenberg.

The last trip the Tyrone Ski Club took was back in 2016 when the club went to White Face in New York. Senior skier Jack Lewis already misses the fun times and great people, “[I feel like] this trip was more fun for me because over the past three years I have gotten a lot better, and now I get to ski on harder trails. I will definitely miss these trips, they’re a lot of fun, and I hope they keep happening for years to come,” said Lewis

The date of the next trip is not certain, but everyone that went hopes for another one soon.
