Then Saturday night we were off to Wintergreen for night skiing, snowboarding and tubing.
Hanging out before time for tubing.
The tubing slopes
Our group gathered at the end of the tubing slopes for a photo moment.
It was pretty funny when our entire group of tubing started gliding down the hill.
Lindsey and I actually glided into what I liked calling a Chasm.
It was hilarious!
I was able to find Adam snowboarding down the slopes beside the tubing area.
He's the taller one in the spot light...he really is!
Overall, it was a great weekend! We didn't have to take anyone to the emergency room, which is great since students sometimes get hurt on the slopes if it's their first time out there. The speaker got the students thinking about areas they needed renewed thinking and there was tons of great fellowship! Can't wait for next year's!
