Snow Sports Day

Posted on Mar 27 2013 - 7:07pm

On March 10th, 68 scouts and adults set out for Snow Valley Ski Resort with high expectations and nervous tensions. As most arrived we gathered around a small table in the lounge in interest of what our next order would be. Most scouts and some adults went down to the lower area of the ski resort to get their ski and snowboard rental gear. Others who either had their own gear or were adult volunteers were tasked with the ever so pain-staking assignment of passing out lift tickets to tens of little boys. To some this may seem like an easy task however a mix of cold weather and bad communication made this a nightmare and for that reason I would like to thank all those who volunteered to help us out.
            Once the ticket situation was figured out we were able to hit the slopes for a day of fun. The weather was very warm ranging from 50 degrees in the morning to 65 in the afternoon. The snow was great, mostly packed powder with some parts of the mountain that were ungroomed for lots of fresh powder. Snow Valley is a great place for both beginners and more experienced riders which was great for our troop. They had a great variety of terrain from bunny slopes to their Edge terrain park, which I was able to experience first hand exactly why it was the mountain's trademark feature.
            At the end of the day everyone was tired, sore but happy they were there. Lucky for us there was not any major injuries, besides bruised tailbones, unlike Philip Todd in previous years. It was a great trip and many scouts were either able to learn how to ski or have a "gnarly" time riding. 26 scouts were able to complete the Snow Sports Merit Badge and all 68 are looking forward to this event again next year.

Sierra "B" Trek Recap

Posted on Aug 19 2012 - 5:11pm

This trip was a journey of 5 scouts and 3 adults backpacking through the Upper and Lower Relief Valleys in the Emigrant Wilderness north of Yosemite. After driving most of the day, the first night was spent roughing it at the Kennedy Meadows Resort in a cabin for eight.  It rained later that day and throughout the night while we all stayed warm and dry in the cabin.  The next day we woke to clear skies and sunshine!   This day was spent hiking 6.8 miles while climbing over 2,000 feet in elevation into the Lower Relief Valley.  We arrived tired and ready for food, a camp fire, and much needed rest.  We woke the next day refreshed and ready to continue our journey.  More sunshine greeted us and we hiked another 2 miles and 500 feet in elevation into the Upper Relief Valley where we found two beautiful mountain lakes.  We spent our time there hiking, fishing, and enjoying the wilderness.  During our day of rest, we hiked to the top of Granite Dome (10,322 ft).  This took us most of the day and we raced back to camp under ever darkening skies.  It rained most of that night and continued into the next morning.  We broke camp slowly in the rain and headed back toward our starting point. With everyone feeling great and the skies still dark, we decided to hike all of the way back to our cars and end our journey.

Camp Emerald Bay Recap

Posted on Aug 6 2012 - 7:40am

Troop 636's 19 scouts and 4 adults successfully returned from the gem of Catalina last Satuday - Emerald Bay summer camp.  Going in style could be the theme of this trip.  We were picked up at the Target parking lot by a Vegas style party limo bus complete with big screen TV, champagne flutes and mirrored lighted ceilings!  The ride was very COOL.  After a quick ferry ride to the island we found our paradise waiting with Club Med like activities galore:  SCUBA diving, kayaking, rifle and shotgun shooting, mountain biking, sailing, motor boating, swimming, tanning and did I say SCUBA diving all supervised and coordinated by the helpful customer-service-friendly Emerald Bay staff.
