How Delphian School Fosters Confidence and Physical Agility (and fun!)

Delphian Student at Mt. BachelorDelphian has a long tradition of fostering a love of skiing and snowboarding in our student body.  Our ski trips offer a great opportunity for the students to gain confidence in his/her physical agility and strength while enjoying the beauty of Oregon’s Cascade mountains.

Our ski trips are open to all elementary, middle and upper school students.  Our first ski trip of the school year is typically to Mt Hood Meadows. The final ski trip of the year is to Mt. Bachelor in Bend, Oregon.

Students will stay in rented vacation homes in Sun River, Oregon (about 30 minutes from Mt. Bachelor). sunriver vacation home

All students new to the sport (and any who may want to brush up on their technique) are given the opportunity to sign up for a lesson with the resort.  After the lesson our Delphian staff skiers and snowboarders are there to give additional help and supervision on the slopes.

Students ski for two days at Mt. Bachelor Resort.  After dinner on Monday evening, students typically enjoy the private use of Mavericks, an exclusive club at Sun River.  Students are able to do indoor rock climbing, play basketball, swim or play games in the pool or “surf” on the “Flowrider”.  On the final morning, students pack up and clean the houses in preparation for our return to Delphian. It’s always one of the highlights of the year!
