Trip was a success! Everyone seemed to have a great time. We started all the students on snowshoes, but the trail was quite packed down so we let them take them off and carry them if they wanted. Once we got to the lake and had lunch, we split into two groups so that students who wanted to hike around the lake could do so (only 2 students opted in) and everyone else had fun sledding and playing in the snow.
