Wfeaiy ' Snowbunnies Return
Battered, Sunburned, Relieved
By WENDY ROGERS
Weary and disheveled, 100 skiers emerged from the
train and Ringed slowly into the depot ...
Weighted down with baggage, cameras, skis and mag
azines, the battered but happy NU students were return
ing from the semester-break ski trip to Winter Park,
Colo. nearly six hours late.
"Snowbunny" and "Snowplow" typical of the first
time skiers on the trip, stopped for a last look at the train.
Trains-trains-trains . . . gr-r-r-r!
"Sure, we like to sit on our suitcases beside the rail
road tracks! Sure we love to wave as the California
Zephyr tears by that train we were supposed to catch
"Something about a denailment ..."
We were supposed to leave Winter Park at 1:30 p.m.,
Sunday. W-e-1-1, at 2:10 our leaders said, "slight delay
, . . head for the warming house."
, At 3 p.m. rally round our leader to the strains
of "There is No Place Like Nebraska," to hear the news
"we'll leave in 45 minutes."
At 4 p.m., still no train. Leader yells, "everybody
back to the warming house!"
Meantime, the California Zephyr whips by engi
neer coyly waves!
S p.m. "Everybody out on the tracks here comes
the train." Group waves farewell to their 4-day wonder
land, and the injured hobble aboard.
"Funniest thing, not enough seats. Oh well, it's only
a two hour ride to Denver," -
Leader says, "Now troops, we have only 30 minutes
In Denver, I think. The cafe is expecting you." .
-Then there was the unloading incident a committee
of boys were to unload the baggage car real profes
sionals! :Duck!" A blue overnight bag sailed through the air.
"Track right!" Skis and poles overshot the luggage pile.
"Thud" That suitcase was a little too heavy.
-Anyway, after only 25 minutes they took meal orders
that means five minutes to eat. "That train ought to
wait for us!"
-Ahhhh! Aboard at last, still in one piece. Train should
be pretty quiet we're all dead. Dead wrong, that is.
- "I think I know every song every sung backwards

and sideways! I should, I had ALL NIGHT to learn. Bless
that 'uke' player!" '
Of course, that was just the finale the trip lasted
That first ride up into the mountains was beautiful
the, scenery was gorgeous, and the 27 tunnels, including
that 6-mile one, were really great for those with claustro
phobia. We didn't waste our time unpacking at the inn
headed straight for the slopes the splendid, scenic ski
slopes! (Worry about luggage later.)
That first lesson was an experience. "It looks so
easy, but ... "
First, you learn how to walk with five-foot feet.
Those ski boots are light as a feather 10 pounds or so.
You must go up before you can gome down so
sidestep, you snowbunnies, sidestep.
The snowplow, the speedy snowplow at dizzying
speed you race down the two-foot beginning slope.
Now the turns you lean OUT from the slope, not
into it. Yes, tliat's what happens if you don't fan.
Now we're experts, let's head for the T-Bar. (That's
the tow.) "Remember, just relax, bend your knees, and
lean, don't sit, lean," says handsome learned ski instruc
tor as he pries open the death grip on the bar.
All the way up the practice slope. Of course, now,
we must come down. Since NOBODY uses the 'practice
slope, it's not icy at all just slow snow. Hooray, only
50 falls' and we're down the slope!
After a day on the practice slope, and an evening of
twisting at the local night club, we're not stiff at all, so
we bounce out of bed and head for the ski runs.
They say the scenery at the top of the mountain is
beautiful. We're really good now, so let's head for the top.
We fly off "The Comet" and pick ourselves up. Gee
no one told us there was a slow T-Bar up too. WTell,
that's another fear conquered. , . ,
Halfway down the mountain, that's pretty good.why
Halfway down the mountain, that's pretty good, why
not all the way to Sunspot on top of the mountain.
The second tow is a little steeper the tops of our
heads are pointing east.
Anxiously, cautiously, we start down the two-mile run.
As we plow carefully down the slope "whizz!" A three
foot demon shoots past not. even using poles. Sure,
Injuries are expected on any ski trip, and they al
ways happen. With 102 students on the trip, two students
suffered broken bones, one an injured vertebrae, one an
injured foot, and 12 suffered sprains.
But Linda Jensen, a junior, had double trouble
guess who fell from the bus breaking her leg, AFTER
spraining her foot on the slopes. 4
No one seemed able to appear on time for their
scheduled ureal shift at the Yodel Inn, but patient German
hosts Helga, Fritz, and Carl let them eat anyway.
When the NU troops stormed the Norseman night
club Friday night, many were promptly labeled "hay
seeds." Why? Most were still covered with straw from
the early evening hay ride into the area around Fraser,
' The Winter Park trip was sponsored by the Student
Union recreation committee. Chairman of the committee
Sam Condit and assistant Judy Keys, both sophomores,
planned the trip.
Chaperones for the group were: Gail Sherman, union
program director, and her husband, Pro; Neal Mietler,
assistant director; Jim Hornby; and Dr. and Mrs. Lee
Herman of Omaha. t
According to Meitler, left-over funds will be used to
get ski patches for the' University of Nebraska Ski Club,
Winter Park, Colo., 1962.
