UREC takes on slopes in Colorado

Students get the opportunity to bond while skiing

Students with the Outdoor Adventures division of UREC travelled to Crested Butte, Colorado from Jan. 2 to Jan. 11 for a ski trip.

“The purpose of the ski trip was to give students a chance to try something that they may have never done before,” said Andy Hinds, graduate assistant for Outdoor Adventures. “Some students had never left the state before, so it gives them an opportunity to see new places.”

The trip offered new adventures, ski lessons and new friendships Hinds said. Students also had the opportunity to teach and assist other participants.

“I can easily say that I walked away from this trip with new friends that I will know for the rest of my time here at ASU,” Hinds said.

The trip cost $375 per student. The fee covered transportation, room and board, all meals while in Colorado except one, snacks on the way to and from Colorado, equipment rentals and lift passes.

“I got the opportunity to have fun and experience something new for an affordable price, as well as make closer bonds and relationships with other students,” Grant Hill, Outdoor Adventures supervisor, said.

UREC will take a weekend camping and rock-climbing trip from March 2 to March 4. UREC will also go on a zip line tour at Lake Travis from April 21 to April 22.
