After having no school for two straight days because of the dangerous wind chills and road conditions, students enrolled in Outdoor Adventures spent Friday, Jan. 31, outside at Hidden Valley Ski Resort for an educational field trip.

The students had a lesson about skiing, and because St. Louis has no real mountains, the best place for applying their learned skills is the skiing resort which supplies its powder from snowmaking machines. From beginner terrains to places for expert skiers, students were able to show off their abilities.

”We were told to dress in layers,” Kacey Kluba said. “Everybody showed up super prepared in tons of layers and it ended up being pretty warm outside and everyone was sweating.”

They went through a training to learn and practice how to ski. Along with the tutorial, students were able to get lunch and head back to the different slopes for the rest of the day while getting to miss school.

Marissa Frank said the experience was fun.

”I just didn’t get the hang of it at first,” she said. “It took me a while, but overall, it was pretty nice.”
