Ski Trip!

Elk Mountain Ski Trip Report by Gabe G.


26 scouts, alumni scouts, siblings and family friends went on the annual ski trip to Elk Mountain February 3-5.  After a 3 hour trip to the Days Inn hotel, we checked in, played games and had a Domino’s pizza party.  Some of the scouts enjoyed the Jacuzzi and pool, and other scouts went to the arcade and got stuff from the vending machines.


Saturday morning we ate breakfast in the hotel and took a 45 minute drive to Elk Mountain where some scouts took lessons while others skied freely until lunch.  Lunch was hoagies that Mrs. Kazimierczyk brought from Subway.  They were a hit!  After lunch everyone went skiing together at first, then we separated to different hills based on out level of confidence in ourselves.  We also got to see some races down black diamonds.  Then we went back to the hotel to get cleaned up to go to T.G.I. Friday’s for dinner.  We all had an appetizer and dinner.  The mozzarella sticks and fries were the best things.  After dinner we went to the hotel and celebrated our SPL Connor’s birthday with Tastykakes.  Then some scouts went bowling while others stayed back and enjoyed the pool and Jacuzzi.


Sunday morning we woke up, packed, got breakfast at the hotel and then went to mass at Saint Mary’s Church.  It was Scout Sunday for their Troop and there was a court of honor for an Eagle Scout!  Then we left and arrived home with plenty of time to get ready for the Super Bowl.


It was a fun trip and everyone had a blast.
