Though California is in a severe drought, a few students traveled to Mt. High last weekend for a snowboarding fix. Because we've had no precipitation for weeks, conditions weren't great, but machine-made snow made for some thrilling rides. (And an icy surface made for some hilarious spills, according to Mr. Hamilton, who led the trip.) We're hoping for some snow in the coming weeks -- 85 degrees and sunny can get a little old in the middle of January.
Sana, Jeainny, and Alicia at the lift. No action shots for this installment -- Mr. Hamilton decided to avoid the bumps and bruises higher up the slopes.
