Zoni Ski Trip to the Shawnee Mountain in Pennsylvania!

Published Korinne Algie on Sunday, February 16, 2020

Students from Zoni Language Centers skiing and snowboarding

At Zoni Language Centers we are always looking for new ways for our students to make the most of their time in the United States, as well as giving them unique opportunities to practice their English! With this in mind, on 31 January we held our very first Ski Trip! Students from our New York and New Jersey campuses spent the day skiing, snowboarding, tubing and getting to know each other at Shawnee Mountain. 

Shawnee Mountain is in Pennsylvania about 2 hour’s drive from Manhattan. Students left early in the morning by bus and returned in the evening of the same day.  Shawnee Mountain is known for its range of activities and slopes, meaning you don’t have to be a skier to enjoy the snow! 

Students were able to take ski and snowboard lessons (in English) and have fun riding giant tubes down the Pocono Plunge! Of course, students who could already ski were able to rent equipment and enjoy the slopes (and the view from the chairlift). It was also a fantastic opportunity for students from different Zoni campuses to meet and make new friends through this fun winter activity! 

For some Zoni students this was their first time in proper snow (not just the flakes that fall on the streets of New York). Luckily, conditions were lovely, and the mountain was covered in about 28 inches of snow! Even though there were a number of tumbles throughout the day (for both staff and students) everyone had an amazing time! The consensus was that learning to snowboard was the favourite activity. You could see by the smiles on the students’ faces how much they were enjoying themselves. On the way back to Zoni at the end of the day, students were already talking about their next ski trip! 

Additional photos and videos of the Zoni Ski Trip are available on our facebook and instagram channels.
