MOC General Meeting

Trip Reports

 

New Member’s Weekend was a smashing success! There were over 70 people there and no one had to go to the hospital.

 

Emma’s Intro to Telemark skiing trip went smoothly. If you weren’t at the meeting, you missed a nice demonstration of what telemark is by our lovely exec…

 

Skiing this weekend was amazzzzing! We all learned a new term – The Stem Christie. If you don’t know what that is, look it up and impress your friends.

 

Amandine went ice climbing with Caroline in Burlington! There was an ice climbing festival going on there, and they even got to use really nice free gear! Chris and Steph also went to Burlington but went skiing instead!
