A group of fifty students and seven faculty chaperones traveled to Ghent, WV to spend the long weekend on the slopes. Getting a head start on the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, the group left bright and early Friday, Feb. 18. This retreat is offered to all high school grades with the chance to sign up months in advance.

The Christian Life Ski Retreat is planned to make sure students can get the same exciting experience as previous years. Christian Life Director Alex Bufton said, “I have to book the house a year in advance,” which means that the students are going back to the same house to make more memories that will stay with them for many years to come. “A lot of time is spent planning the transportation, ski rentals and food for everyone,” said Bufton.
