Winter Sports Weekend at Crawford Notch in the White Mountains. February 4 - 5, 2017. Nine 7th and 8th graders spent the weekend in the winter wonderland of the White Mountains. On Saturday we hiked by snowshoe up Mount Willard for a terrific view over Crawford Notch. We spent the night in the comfort of the Highland Center lodge. On Sunday we learned to cross country ski. Students successfully mastered the basics in the morning and we headed out in the afternoon to explore the wooded trails of the Bear Notch ski area. Students' positive attitudes and willingness to persevere while learning new skills in cold temperatures helped to make the trip fun and successful.
