This annual hike up our mountain is not just about community building, it’s about how seriously we take school spirit. Each year, the entire Upper Campus hikes to the top of our old ski trail to officially sort our newest community members into one of the two teams representing our school colors. 

During the school year, “Maroon” faces off against “Gray” academically, athletically, and through our motto, “Life Through Service.” From Mountain Day to the Academic Bowl, there are many opportunities for students to earn points for their team. 

Whether our newest friends were sorted into the defending champion “Gray” team or the underdog “Maroon” team, the hike established a foundation for what is sure to be an exciting year filled with growth, fun, and fierce but friendly competition.
