    Back From Break In One Piece

    By Jack | January 7, 2013

    It’s good to be back on campus, seeing all my friends again and getting back into the regular grind of class. But I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t have an absolute blast over Christmas break.

    In particular, my last four days were extremely fun. My family went on a ski trip to Holiday Valley, New York, along with two other families that are close friends.

    Between the antics of our parents (who enjoyed the opportunity to take a break from being socially acceptable, responsible adults), my brother’s Stooges-esque wipeouts, and the beautiful winter scenery, it was a great trip.

    Here are some highlights and pictures that I think are worth sharing.

    Blue skies, crisp mountain air, and a fresh layer of powder

    This restaurant literally had a Christmas tree on the ceiling. Sweet.


    As you can see, we were blessed with great weather for snowboarding. So we took full advantage and “shredded the gnar” (as some of the more avid boarders might say).

    Some of the highlights:

    It’s sort of disappointing to go from the beautiful snowy pine forests of northern New York back to the slushy, messy winter here in Ohio, but hey, I’m at Ohio State, so I really shouldn’t be complaining.
