An exciting EduTrip opportunity

During my week off that just ended yesterday, temperatures soared into the 50’s in the valley with plenty of sunshine. My time skiing and working at Attitash were spent wearing a light fleece jacket and at times, even just a vest. I even saw people out on road bikes on route 302. All signs that old man winter is starting to slowly lose his grip in the valley. As we would expect, here on the summit winter continues. Temperatures haven’t risen above freezing and when we arrived yesterday, temperatures were in the teens with a brisk 20-30 mph breeze blowing. Of course this is rather calm and mild on the mountain, even for this time of year, but that didn’t keep it from being a bit of shock to my body after such mild weather in the valley.

With winter just starting to wind down so does our winter EduTrip program. There are only 5 trips left this season and several of those are already completely full. One upcoming trip that does still have space left on it also happens to be a topic and concept that is brand new (and very exciting, in my opinion) for this season: cooking. Chef John Bauhs, a frequent summit volunteer for several years now and a professional chef will lead an EduTrip on March 18 and 19 entitled ‘Alpine Culinary: The Challenges of High Altitudes and High Attitudes in the Kitchen’.

Having now spent seven shifts with Chef John as a volunteer, I can certainly speak from experience when I say that he is an awesome chef, a great teacher, and an all around fun guy to be around. I have no doubt that his EduTrip is going to be a blast for the participants. So, if you want more information on the details of this trip, or if you want to purchase tickets, click here. Don’t wait, because just like any EduTrip space is limited and you won’t want to miss out on this one!
