Duhawks shred at Sundown

Cora Shefchik (TheLorian)

Winter is officially here. Two of the most common winter activities include skiing and snowboarding. Students had an opportunity to do these out on Friday, Feb. 5. The Loras College Activities Board (CAB) offered out free tickets to Sundown Mountain in Asbury. Students were able to sign up through CABs Google Form and Sundown’s official wavier. Then, they had from seven to midnight to ski or snowboard their hearts out. Many people who signed up to come had never skied or snowboarded before.

“I had such a great time at Sundown! Although I was apprehensive going into the experience, I had a lot of fellow Duhawks and professionals near me who helped me learn how to ski. It truly was one of the best CAB events I have been to,” said senior Celia Balderston about her first time skiing.

“We chose Sundown for the event because we wanted to get students off campus and to see some of the businesses here in Dubuque.” Overall Patricia thinks that she “would consider this event a success because everyone who went was really excited to go and had fun,” said junior Patricia Droessler, the programmer running this CAB event.

CAB would like to thank everyone that came out to this chilly event and hope you enjoyed it. Look for more events from CAB coming up including Comedian Kiry Shabazz on Feb. 19.


It’s not to late to sign up for Duhawks Connect Weekend. Contact junior Brett Batkoff or sophomore Andrew Martinez for more information.
