ASME First Annual Ski Trip!

This past February, ASME held its first ever (in recent memory) ski trip! We had a great turnout for the event - twenty-six ASME’rs and friends headed out to Tyrol Basin for a Friday afternoon on the slopes. Our skill levels ranged from complete beginner to very experienced skiers and snowboarders and regardless of prior knowledge, everyone in attendance had snow much fun!

We met at the Engineering Centers Building and carpooled to Tyrol basin, arriving around 3:30pm and skiing or snowboarding by 4. A couple of our new skiers and snowboarders took advantage of Tyrol’s free lessons while those of us who were a bit out of practice got a tip (or twenty) from more experienced attendees (thanks guys!). I was in the latter group and had a good wipe out or two before really finding my footing. We stayed at Tyrol and skied until 9PM with one short break for cheese curds and fries and left completely worn out from all the skiing and laughs. Overall, it was a very successful ski trip and we look forward to continuing the event in the future!
