Students can hit the slopes on trip

By Sara Blankenheim

Even though there’s a lack of snow in DeKalb, avid skiers have an opportunity to hit the slopes.

Campus Activities Board Travel and the Residence Hall Association’s Believing In Culture are sponsoring a ski trip on Feb. 15 to Chestnut Mountain Resort in Galena, Ill.

CAB Travel Coordinator Nicole Weber said the idea stemmed from the RHA’s and BIC’s trip last year.

“With last year’s trip, only people from the dorms could go,” she said. “This time, people in the dorms and outside of the dorms can go.”

The trip will be an all-day trip, with the two buses leaving DeKalb at 7 a.m.

The price of tickets will be $15 for the lift ticket and or $30 for lift ticket and equipment rental.

The prices include transportation and lunch.

Students who purchased tickets through RHA will depart from the Douglas loading dock, and students who purchased tickets through CAB will depart from the east side of the Holmes Student Center.

Anyone who is not a student is welcome to attend, but the ticket price will be an additional $7.

Tickets can be purchased from the RHA office, located at B-50 Neptune North, or the CAB office at the Campus Life Building, Suite 160.

For information, call Rachel at 752-1097 in the RHA office, or Nicole at 753-1580 in the CAB office.
