All Kinds of News for January 09, 2019
The 2018-2019 ski season is well underway! The participants at AIM House partake in a ski trip every Friday to various resorts around Colorado. In addition to getting out in some powder, these trips create opportunities for participants to further bond with their housemates and staff, as well as to explore the state outside of Boulder.
The experience level of the participants (and staff!) varies from lifetime skiers and boarders to first-timers looking to learn their way around a mountain. The trips are led by AIM House lead mentor Tyler Wilkinson (a Colorado Native), who favors trips to the Loveland and Copper resorts. This season has been successful so far; AIM Housers have already had multiple “Bluebird” days. The number of participants interested in taking part in this activity has been steadily growing since the first trip in late November.
Wilkinson is planning a weekend long trip later in the season to either Winter Park or Copper Mountain. During this trip, everyone will stay up in the mountains at a slope-side rental, rather than trek back down to Boulder. The season is still getting started, and the AIM house community is, as always, excited to see what the rest of the season will hold!
