Message from our Outgoing SnS President, Please Vote in our SnS Elections and Join Our Exec Board Leadership Positions

First of all, I just want to thank everyone for such a rad year. Serving this club has been the highlight of my college career. I personally encourage you all to pursue activities outside of the classroom that align your passions with challenging and meaningful leadership experience, be it through Hoofers or anything else! On that note, we are beginning to transition to a new executive board. Elections are open for the Tri-Executive board, consisting of the President, VP-Trips, and VP-Finance. I have attached the platforms for President (Raefe Gross running unopposed) and VP-Trips (James Huffman running against Ryan Johnson). We will send out applications for VP-Finance over the weekend. Voting will take place this week in the Outdoor UW office and is open until this Friday April 10th at 6:00pm. So check out the attached platforms by clicking their names, and I hope to see you in the office this week! Finally, we will be releasing the application for next year's executive board THIS SUNDAY. The only qualifications you need for any of these positions is a passion for skiing or snowboarding. This is a great opportunity to get involved with one of UW's largest student orgs in terms of members and budget. You can find the in-depth Position Descriptions for the 30-some positions that will be open here.  

Solid Results from UW Alpine Team in the Nationals

Our girls team and individual male qualifer returned from Nationals in Bend Oregon last week. The event was awesome to say the least, and according to senior Brenna Murray, "The best nationals out of the 3 I've attended." The results reflected Brenna's enthusiasm:
Girls Slalom Team: 6th Overall
Steig Peterson: 25th in Slalom
Megan Mcmahon: 8th Skier Cross/2nd Team All America
The temperature was also great. Reaching into the 50s and 60s, frostbite was no issue after a cold and windy regionals. Sophomore Isabelle Cooperstein's goggle tan post-raceweek was proof of this. On top of this, the camraderie of our skiing Badgers reached an all time high on the trip. Flying out west together, spending a week in a house together, and skiing in the sunshine together concreted friendships that will stand for a lifetime. I would like to personally thank the alumni and friends that made this trip possible.  Allowing our racers to attend this event at an affordable price created memories that are life-lasting, and instilled a passion for commitment to our team that is everlasting for both current, and future alumni.
