In case you’re planning to ski Sugarloaf this weekend, keep an eye out for nearly 300 Fletcher students, along with some Fletcher friends, Fletcher spouses, and Fletcher kids! A relatively new annual tradition, the January ski trip is a student-run adventure that draws more than half of our students. Not only did the six-person organizing team arrange the lift tickets and other ski basics, they rented condos, assigned housing, counseled students from warm-weather locations on the need for appropriate clothing, and sent weather reports, in addition to details on spas and other après-ski activities. For weeks, emails going around the community have had subject lines such as “Ski-pants needed!” and “Share a van to Sugarloaf?” Next week we’ll be back to more mundane subjects, but with the community further strengthened by the shared adventure.
