I am SO excited to be going up to Mammoth with the Ski and Snowboard team for the first time this weekend! Not only is it my first time going to Mammoth as a member of the team, but it is my first time skiing on the West Coast! So far, I have really been loving my involvement on the Ski Team. Because the season runs from November-May, the team had a few events before the season starts to make sure we all knew each other before opening weekend. There has been cliff diving, movie night at Santa Monica, and a few football tailgates over the past few weeks, among other smaller events.
The USC Ski and Snowboard Team has students go to Mammoth any time between November and May and ski recreationally or compete against other schools. Although I am not planning on competing, they really emphasize welcoming skiiers of all levels which is why I was able to join. In the beginning I joined because I wanted to become a better skiier.. I did not expect to love so many of the people as much as I do before even going up for my first weekend trip! After finishing up midterms last week, I cannot wait for this weekend. Roadtripping is the best!
