At Carthage College, a student came that did not intend to start a club. However, when he found out that the school did not have a skiing and snowboarding club, he decided to form one. His petition for a club got a lot of support from students, which he actually wasn’t too surprised to hear.
- Marco Benitto did not come to Carthage College to start a club. However, after attending the fall Organization Fair, he was disappointed to see an absence of a snowboard and ski club.
- Benitto began these snow sports when he was 14-years-old. He learned to ski first but switched to snowboarding later, which he prefers.
- His passion for the sport brought him to place a petition outside his dorm room door, encouraging students to sign up.
“If formed, the club would likely ski and snowboard at Wilmont Mountain, similar to but smaller than Alpine Valley. Wilmont provides a variety of terrains for those with beginner to expert skill levels.”
