Bowdoin Snolympics Tests Brains and Brawn in a Lot of Snow Archives

The Bowdoin Outing Club organized a four-hour Snolympics on Friday afternoon, putting students through a series of challenges in about two feet of powdery snow. The competition included a series of events like “fire building,” “human sled dog racing,” “layer up,” and “snowball archery.”

On Saturday, Bowdoin also held its annual Winter Weekend, offering horse-drawn carriage rides, hot chocolate and s’mores, a polar plunge, and snow-globe making. Reed House stages a broomball tournament.
