With the start of a new year, many are partaking new hobbies while accomplishing their 2023 resolutions. Some students are completing their goals by taking advantage of Kean P.U.L.S.E. 's Sleigh Big with Kean skip trip. This trip will truly give students an opportunity to learn a skill while building friendships.
On Saturday, January 28, students will sleigh, sled, and explore new friendships at Mountain Creek. The goal of this trip is to help Kean Cougars connect with each other while gaining a new skill.
“Mountain Creek is the New York/New Jersey Metro area's closest four season resort featuring skiing/snowboarding, ziplining, waterpark, mountain biking and more!,” said Mountain Creek on their Facebook page.
For this trip, students will partake in the resort's skiing and snowboarding features. Located in Vernon Township, New Jersey, visitors will explore and experience all types of fun in the snow.
Students on the trip may gain some health benefits by partaking in snow activities such as skiing. According to the University of New Hampshire, if a person continuously partakes in skiing, their levels of awareness will increase and ultimately lead to a boost in one’s coordination and posture. For those who’d like to learn more about the health benefits of skiing, they can visit the University of New Hampshire’s webpage.
Tickets for the ski trip were available for purchase on Tuesday, January 17. The trip cost $25 per student and it sold out in less than a week. Those on the trip will be leaving from Wilkins Theatre Bus Stop at 9 a.m. and will return at 6:30 p.m.
Sleigh Big with Kean is an opportunity for students to get some fresh air through fun activities. Before the semester gets too busy with coursework and other responsibilities, a short break with nature may be just what students need.
Enjoy your trip, Cougars!
