This weekend, students took advantage of the winter weather to learn one of the most emblematic winter sports in the US, skiing! At Wachusett Mountain about 45 minutes away from MAIA, students rented skis and took beginner classes. It was the first time skiing for almost all the students, and they did very well!
The instructors and staff were amazing- extremely kind and helpful. Wachusett is a great mountain for beginner skiers. Here is a photo of students on their skis for the first time with their instructors:
Despite the dreary weather, there were big smiles all around. Students said that they really enjoyed the trip and several mentioned that they would like to try skiing again in the future. Because we went as a group from MAIA, students could enjoy free transportation and discounted rates.
