Some may call us crazy, but every year Outdoor Pursuits will take a group of students away from the sunny paradise we call home in search of cold, powdery snow. This is an annual favorite for most students that includes 3 days of either skiing or snowboarding at the beautiful Sugar Mountain Ski Resort in Winterplace, WV.
