ski Trip 


This past weekend, the Troop went on a ski trip to Jack Frost in the Pocono Mountains. This ski trip started off with less than ideal weather but by the time everyone arrived at the mountain, the conditions improved and all the Scouts were prepared for a great day of skiing. After a day of doing jumps on the terrain park and practicing technique on the more difficult runs, everyone was ready to settle in to camp.

Upon arriving at camp, hot chocolate was made and Scouts settled in to their tabins. After a hot dinner, Scouts returned to their tabins to set up the wood fire stoves to keep them warm throughout the night. The next morning everyone packed their gear and had one last round of hot chocolate before heading home.
