As we do each year, the Secondary students and teachers went to Mt. Zao for the winter ski trip. This year we decided to stay 2 nights and make the trip a little longer to get in more skiing and snowboarding. The top of the mountain gets sticky snow during the winter and it builds up on the trees, which creates ‘snow monsters’ along the runs. This year they were a little disappointing as a lot of the trees were not completely covered, but the snow conditions on the runs were amazing. The photos below show how clear and sunny the weather was on Day 2. I was lucky to get so many good photos on the final run because the battery died twice on the way down, but somehow came back on!
