Congrats to the students in SAS's final level 2 of the year. Springtime allows for bigger ski tours. Planning is a big part of the rec Level 2 course. It's amazing to see these students dig deep, commit to their team, overcome individual challenges and and pull off a very impressive mission. #kickkngSAS #3-2-1 #theegoisnotyouramigo #avyschool #mammutna #wyssen
