Do you enjoy being outdoors but don't know what to do when the temperature drops? Do you live for summer but suffer in winter? Are you cooped up from November to March? Don't hide from the cold — celebrate winter! During IAP, participate in MIT Outing Club's Winter School, where you can have fun learning skills like cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice climbing and more. Winter School is MITOC's crash course in cold weather activities.

Winter School is an annual IAP course presented by the members of MITOC. Its goal is to teach the skills one needs to enjoy outdoor sports in the winter. During the month of January, participants attend lectures every Tuesday and Thursday evening and spend time outdoors during the weekends. Trips are offered at various levels of intensity and include hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, back-country skiing, ice climbing, winter camping, orienteering, and mountaineering.

The first two lectures in the series are mandatory in order to participate in the outdoor trips during Winter School. See the website for more details.

The fact that this school has a task -> to teach people some skills that are necessary for doing sports exercises outdoors in the winter. Everyone must agree with me that doing sports exercises is useful for all people, including doing sports exercises is useful for students! Probably, doing sports exercises is more useful for students than for other people, because students spend a lot of time in a sitting position and indoors because they study, they sit in class, do homework at home, read in the library. Therefore, I recommend to everyone students to use the best essay writing service that will help with writing paper homework like essays, term papers etc..... This site has a lot of customer reviews that are successful because all papers, that customers buy from this essay writing service have received the best professional finished papers. Because due to the service that will help with the homework, students can find time to do sports exercises, so, to visit similar schools. In conclusion, I recommend visiting this school for all students and using the service that I have already mentioned! I recommend these things for students because I want that they will be healthier and our nation will be healthier!
