Middlebury Ski Bum League Kicks Off Another Season

It’s that time of year . . . to dust off the boards and think snow! We have a ski bum league that happens on most Fridays from January to March and the hope is that we can get more Middlebury College students involved in participating.

Anyone can join: no “racing” experience needed. That includes faculty and staff; this is not just for students. There is a scoring system that gives everyone a chance to win, even if you’re snowplowing down the hill.

You can race on anything. skis, snowboard, tele gear, whatever your fancy. You don’t have to go every Friday, but you’ll want to! The best part is the social hour that follows: free appetizers at various locations throughout town. No need to be 21.

So please reach out to a few friends, students, faculty, and staff and see if you can get them excited to start a team. Anyone is welcome to participate — the more the merrier, and there is no need for a Middlebury College affiliation.

All events are on Fridays, from 1:30-3 p.m. Here’s the schedule: January 13, 20, 27; February 3, 10, 17; March 2, 9, 16, 23.

Middlebury College Students are FREE
Middlebury College Staff and Faculty, $10 for the season
General public, $20 for the season

Lift tickets are not included but appetizers are, I say with a smile.

We are hosting a meeting for all interested this Thursday Dec. 1, at 4:30 p.m. at Crossroads Cafe. 

Hope to see you this season!
