The Return of the Overnight Ski Trip

The Braintree High Ski Club brought back the overnight trip on February 2nd up to Attitash Mountain Resort for the first time since 2019.

“The fact that we’ve taken like 5 years off, kids didn’t really know what to expect,” said Mr.Nichols

After so many years off of the overnight trip, it was really exciting for students to see it finally run back up again. With the months leading up to the trip, there were many parentsquare posts preparing everyone. Each post became more exciting, seeing as the trip was inching closer and closer. From roommate requests, to reminders, and forms to fill out, the day finally came. Students were dismissed during B block on Friday, February 2nd to avoid the afternoon traffic and get on the road. The bus ride was approximately 3 hours long with no stops in between. We enjoyed playing trivia, singing along to songs, eating snacks, and riding with friends.

“It was nice to see students in a non academic sense,” expressed Mr.Nichols

It is not everyday that students and teachers get to interact outside of school, especially with teachers they have never met or do not have, and so for many it was a new and enjoyable experience. In this case, students were even able to run into their teachers up on the mountain and catch up on how their runs were going.

“My favorite part of the trip was crossing paths with students all over the mountain and seeing them enjoying themselves. That’s what the trip is all about: being outside, enjoying nature and having fun with friends,” stated Mr.Baker

With limited space on the bus, there evidently was a waitlist and students were eager to make sure they secured a spot on the trip and enjoy with fellow classmates. It became a race to turn in deposits and final payments, but Mr.Baker was very flexible.

“In the future I’d like to give as many kids as possible the opportunity to go on these trips, so I’d like to expand the offerings. Maybe add a second trip later in the season so winter athletes can take part, or maybe a couple after-school trips for night skiing at some mountains closer to BHS,” mentioned Mr.Baker

Many winter athletes unfortunately could not attend due to their busy practice and game schedules. With that being said, another trip later in the season would definitely open up doors to new adventures and opportunities. All in all, BHS students had a great time, and many cannot wait to head back up again next year!

“I felt like the trip was a success,” mentioned Mr.Nichols
