Marlboro College Outdoor Program
A group of 8 students at Southern Vermont School, Marlboro College were awarded a Flyin Ryan Scholarship for a dream expedition of the Chic Chocs in Quebec, CA. Matt McIntosh, Sophie Ackerman, Sam Amber, Chris Lamb, Cait Mazzarella, Jonah Rosenblum, Noah Strauss-Jenkins and Max Cliggott-Perlt were participating student adventurers.
“This is an opportunity to prove to Marlboro’s incoming president that the Outdoor Program needs more funding and respect. It’s a chance to grow as skiers and riders so we can conquer bigger peaks, steeper drops, and deeper powder; it’s an opportunity to never stop exploring life. Most of all, it’s a chance to spend a week with passionate people that love each other in a beautiful place and to spread the good tidings of the mountains back to our lonely college here in Southern VT.”-Matt McIntosh

“Thanks again for the support of our trip up to the Chic Chocs. We had an amazing adventure. We accomplished all our goals: skiing world-class powder, using/teaching our avalanche assessment skills, getting closer as a group of friends, having a blast, and lighting the fire for future backcountry endeavors in all seasons and locations.” -Matt McIntosh
