Youth Exchange Ski Day
Every year the Summit Rotary Club sponsors a ski weekend for the International Exchange students visiting District 5450. Copper Mountain has been very generous in providing three-day lift tickets and an exceptional chicken dinner. Students are asked to pay just $25, which is used to rent a condo where they enjoy après-ski parties. Summit Rotary arranges for the students to stay with host families who often report enjoying the experience as much as do their houseguests. The event has been among the students’ favorite activities for the past 15 years. In addition to skiing during the quiet off-season, they enjoy each other’s company and share their impressions and stories of their experiences of life in a new country.
