Skiing and Snowboarding, Ski Roundtop, Lewsibury PA, December 15
Most of our Scouts have been to Roundtop before, either with the Troop or as a Cub Scout. The “cool” thing to do is snowboarding, but a few with a lot of experience continue to ski. Everyone purchased a package based on their needs – most bought the all inclusive package with the rentals, lesson, and lift ticket.
This early in the season some of the more difficult slopes are not open, but the ones that were open provided enough variety for everyone to have a ball. The boys spent time goofing off, racing each other, and learning control from each other.
At various times in the day a few of the more experienced, more daring, or less intelligent Scouts tried their skills on the terrain park. This is a series of bumps, jumps, and rails for snowboarders, or skiers, to jump, slide, and fall.
