Extended Trips

Ski & Snowboard (January)

Worried about winter? Don’t be. Make this winter break the coolest one yet, atop the slopes of Colorado strapped into one of our Burton snowboards… about to glide down to the lodge… where there’s a hot tub, comforting winter food, and hot cocoa. Need way say more? Make winter fun again and join students of NIU as we kick off the New Year in style and drive west to the mountains of Colorado to be active and enjoy winter sports.

Included in the registration fee is:

  • Transportation to and from NIU
  • First come, first-served snowboard rental

Trip Level 2: Moderate physical conditioning is necessary, some experience and technical knowledge is needed
