CBU Outdoor Adventures program hosts Mammoth Mountain trip
Riverside, Calif. (Jan. 19, 2018) – A group of California Baptist University students and staff spent the first holiday weekend of 2018 skiing and snowboarding on the snow-covered slopes of Mammoth Mountain. Thirty-five adventure seekers participated in the excursion, hosted Jan. 12-15, by the CBU Community Life Outdoor Adventures program.
“Mammoth Resort is a renowned place to ski and snowboard,” said Tucker Carl, Community Life’s program coordinator – outdoor adventures. “It has great snow, and is an incredible place to experience big terrain.”
Carissa Arguello, a kinesiology sophomore, signed up for the trip to meet new Lancers.
“It was really awesome being able to meet so many new people,” Arguello said. “I only knew a few people before the trip and by the end of the trip I felt like I made so many new friends.”
Outdoor Adventures programs at CBU offer students opportunities to enjoy natural wonders such as prestigious national parks, popular mountain ranges and the iconic beaches of the Pacific coast. Community Life provides, for a nominal fee, transportation, appropriate gear for the adventure and most of the food.
Future planned Outdoor Adventures for this semester will include a day outing to Snow Valley and a Pacific coast beach to snowboard and surf on the same day. There is also a camping trip planned to Big Sur.
