On January 14, 2016, 84 students boarded a bus and headed off to Jiminy Peak, the largest ski resort in New England. The students were in Jr. Ski Club. It was their first time trip. Their schedule was rather simple. Get on the bus, go to the resort, settle in the lodge, get dressed in 30-minutes or less,  and go to a 1-hour lesson. After the lesson, they had an hour and 15 minutes to free ski with their friends. Next, they would get back on the bus, then depart for Farnsworth Middle School. They would get there at about 9:00 P.M., and their day would be over. “I love ski club. Just beware of the rails in the terrain park.” says Kimberly Riek, a 6th grader in Mohawk house.

Jr. Ski Club is a club that is 7 weeks long. Every Thursday, they would go skiing. In the mornings, at around 8:00-8:30, the students would store their skis in a small, closed off area in the back of the cafeteria. At 3:10, they would excuse themselves from their mod 13 class, grab their stuff, and get on the bus. At 3:28, the bus would leave for the mountain. “Although Mother Nature was not cooperative with snow this year, the FMS Jr. Ski club still made 7 trips to Jiminy Peak with 84 members and 10 chaperons.  It was a great experience for everyone as Jiminy made snow for all to ski and ride on.  Another year in the books for FMS Jr. Ski Club!!” says Mr. Curro, a health teacher at FMS.
