Snow Sports Outing at Ober Gatlinburg

On Saturday, January 5th, we went on skiing at Ober Gatlinburg. This outing gave several of the 14 scouts who participated the opportunity to complete their Snow Sports merit badge. Scouts who had not skied before were required to take a lesson. Three scouts opted to go snow boarding rather than ski. We skied from about 3:00 in the afternoon until 9:30 in the evening so there were lots of sore mussels the next day. We got back to the church just after midnight.

Here we are waiting on the Sky Tram to take us up to Ober Gatlinburg.

Here we are getting outfitted with our skis and other equipment.

The scouts who had not skiied before took a one hour lesson at the ski school.

Here are some pictures taken on the ski slope.
