Every year in mid-January, students from William & Mary Law School caravan their way out into the mountains,to take a break from studying and to enjoy some time in the outdoors.
The trip takes place in Snowshoe, West Virginia, about 4 hours from Williamsburg, and each year, between 150 and 200 students from the law school attend; this year was no exception.
While away, students can enjoy time on the mountain – skiing, snowboarding, tubing, horseback riding, shopping, or just relaxing with friends.
Organized by the Student Bar Association (SBA), the student government of the Law School, students can take advantage of group pricing for cabin rentals, lift passes, ski/snowboard rentals, and tubing throughout the weekend. Tickets go on sale toward the end of the first semester, giving students something fun to look forward to at the beginning of the spring semester (other than class, of course).
Don’t ski or snowboard? Don’t worry, there are plenty of activities around the mountain for those who wish to avoid the wet, winter weather. Or, for the braver soul, lessons are also available.
This unique opportunity gives students at William & Mary Law School an amazing opportunity to get outside of the classroom or library, and to enjoy time with friends and classmates, as well as to make new friends at the law school.
