ski tripThirty-one Monticello High School students hit the slopes in Stowe, Vermont from January 23-25 during the school's annual weekend ski trip. The trip is organized by Virginia Morse, assistant principal at Monticello High School.

Students skied for two days at Mt. Mansfield in Stowe, which is the tallest mountain in Vermont. On Saturday night, chaperones brought the students to the college town of Burlington, and students had the opportunity to walk around, shop and have dinner.

Monticello students have skied at Okemo twice, Mt. Snow, Sugarbush, Killington, Stratton and now Stowe. Students are encouraged to conduct research and recommend a mountain for the next ski trip.

"The trip is advertised early so the kids know they must stay academically eligible in order to participate," Ms. Morse said. "We like to make sure the students have an opportunity to ski four different mountains by the time they graduate. We may have to venture to New Hampshire soon and ski one of the White Mountains."
