It’s that time of year again. Everyone’s breaking out their skis and snowboards as we are awaiting the first big snow of the year! If you don’t have a car on campus, it can be difficult to get to and from the mountains. If you’re an avid skier, there’s a great solution for you! UNH sponsors a great club called the Ski and Board Club. After you pay club dues, they offer rides to students to and from Loon Mountain and Sunday River.  They offer rides every Saturday as long as there is not weather issues.

So why not spice it up a bit, support UNH students and check out the upcoming Gourmet Dinner!
