The Miner team truly is the best team and we had the opportunity to be reminded of this on the slopes and tubing hill at Titus Mountain on Feb. 19 for the first -- of what hopefully becomes an annual event -- Miner Skiing/Tubing Day! The Institute rented the maple room, which is adjacent to Titus Mountain's sugarhouse and offers a warm place to gear up and to warm up! Titus offers discounted rates for large groups, so everyone who participated was able to enjoy a day on the mountain at a discount!
We had lots of snacks and drinks and most notably a fire pit that Dan Belrose built for the occasion. Mike Lemza and his wife Colleen transported the fire pit and plenty of firewood along with the fixings for s'mores to feed a small army!! It was so great to gather around the fire and enjoy the company of our great team and some highly-sugared children!
The only drawback to this incredible day was the snow squalls and whiteout conditions that made travel to and from the mountain pretty treacherous. We are so grateful to be part of an organization that knows how to have fun and to show appreciation to the most valuable assets -- our team!
