cabin Our Friday evening journey north took several hours, but the ten of us were fully energized upon arriving at this lovely cabin in the shadow of Maine's mountains, which would serve as our weekend home.

Following some cooking, relaxing and unwinding we went to bed, eagerly anticipating the adventures which lay ahead on the slopes of Sunday River.
Arrival at Sunday River
Waking up with the sun was worth it; we got to the mountain before the crowds arrived and our early start afforded a beautiful view of Sunday River's peaks which we would soon be skiing.

skis and trails The skis and trails awaited us!
chairlift Heading up the slopes on the chairlift was downright frigid given the wind chill, but our spirits kept us warm!
Group on trail Colleen's snowboard rests in the foreground as half of our group hits the slopes. We had split into smaller contingents in order to conquer different trails and mountain peaks.
glade trail Some abmitious folks left the open slopes to take on the challenging glade trails, which wind through the trees.
Running into fellow Clarkies throughout the day and regrouping for lunch was exciting. It gave us a chance to catch up with each other and show off our fashionable headgear.

trust fall trust fall Saturday night was full of fun: telling stories, playing Scattergories, doing yoga, making merry, and challenging ourselves with classic summer camp activities like trust falls and single finger lifts.
Scattergories We enjoyed equally good skiing conditions on Sunday morning, and right after lunch we packed our gear for the long journey home (made even longer by a developing snowstorm).

Arriving back at Clark our group was sad to disband, but we all looked forward to the promise of more Outing Club trips to come!
