UPS & DOWNS
SKIING—UPS & DOWNS
Skiing classes for MAC students
at.Sugar Mountain began Janu
ary 14th. A group of about eighty
students excitedly piled on two
Trailways buses that afternoon
— rain and all — gung-ho for the
highest ski slope, whether they
knew how to ski or not.
Once at the ski lodge, spirits
were dampened further with the
realization that the group was late
for the early classes and had to
wait for three more hours to take
those at six o’clock.
After eagerly consuming packed
meals and lemonade for supper,
everyone headed with their in
structors to the slopes. Beginners
soon discovered that despite the ac
complishment of getting the skis
on, they still had to figure out how
to get up a portion of the slope
without the lift. Intermediate
skiers on the lift had their jollies
in watching the beginners’ often
futile attempts to accomplish
“simple” techniques explained by
the instructors. But those in the
beginners’ group also had their
laughs seeing the “more experienc
ed” skiers come flying down the
slopes with dampened seats, even
Though skiing weather has not
been superb this year, anxious stu
dents continue to keep their fing
ers crossesd, hoping for colder
weather and a big snow.
