Having Fun in Law School: Ski Weekend

by Lauren Bridenbaugh, Class of 2014

Every year the Student Bar Association (SBA) hosts a ski trip to Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia. Snowshoe is 11,000 acres in the Allegheny Mountains. There are 60 slopes and trails with two trails featuring a 1,500 feet vertical drop. The slopes and trails range from green (easy) to double black diamond (extremely difficult). The resort also features a tube park, spa, night skiing, and heated pools and hot tubs.

Normally, the law students stay in cabins. However, this year we stayed in the Silver Creek Lodge. This meant some of the easier ski trails were right outside our door as well as the tube park. The lodge also featured an indoor/outdoor pool, two hot tubs, and a sauna. This was great because it made everything very centrally located. Buses were available to take skiers and snowboarders to other sections of the park for more difficult runs.

SBA provides the opportunity to rent skis or snowboards, purchase 1 or 3 day lift passes, and take lessons. As someone who has only skied once in my life, I decided I knew enough to not require a lesson, but did not want to ski more than one day. We picked up our rentals on the first night there so it would be quicker and headed out the next morning. Since I was not very experienced, I stuck to the Silver Creek area. The trails and lifts were very accessible and I found the trails easy to handle for someone with such limited experience. Many people who had never been skiing or snowboarding before took lessons and found them very beneficial. And after a few hours out on the slopes, it was nice to come back to a relaxing hot tub right in the building!

If you don’t want to go out on the slopes, you can still go on the trip. At least half of the 150 law students attending, did not go out. Many went to the tube park, hung out with friends, or visited the village by bus at the resort. There is plenty to do up on the mountain for amateur and advanced skiers alike, as well as the “there is no way I am getting on that chair lift” students.

Ski weekend is a great way to see everyone and have fun with your law school friends after being away for Christmas Break!
