Family Ski Trip

On February 24 & 25 the troop and crew skied (and snowboarders rode) at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort. The group rate discount on lift tickets and equipment rentals made the weekend more affordable. Away from the slope the scouts and younger siblings threw snowballs and sledded. Indoors we played board games, had extended talks, got homework done and some earned Snow Sports merit badge. The cabin community worked well for our group and the food provided by the Trail Boss and S.O. was delicious. It was a great getaway!
