Slushy day at Perfect North

Perfect North was not crowded the day Ski Club went. It was a great day, because you could ride the lifts right away without waiting like 30 minutes. The slush was the only main issue for some skiers and snowboarders, but some overcame it easily. Image by Max Fritzhand.

Ski Club went to Perfect North Slopes for the fifth time this season on Feb. 18.  Around 25 kids did not go out of the 40 to 50 kids that usually go. Around 25 students went; the decrease was due to the reason being that the weather was in the mid 40’s.

“Some of my friends were not here with me, so I had to ski by myself,” said Asher Straubbing, 10.

Most of the slopes were unpaved. Going down Center Stage was icy, yet it was very simple and easy due to the slush. Showtime was not slushy at all, the slope was actually, according to some students, great.

Looking ahead

“I hope the weather is not as hot as the previous trip to Perfect North,” said Peter Tosh, 11.

According to the weather channel, the weather will be in the mid 30’s Tuesday of next week when Ski Club goes back to Perfect North. That means that there will not likely be slush what so ever, but there would definitely be ice.

“Ski Club is almost over which stinks! I hope these last few trips back will be good,” said Straubbing.
