Sledding the Slope

 This past Saturday night, after watching a movie that depicted the sad story of an individual that was unable to differentiate between the real world and his own dream world, we found it to be snowing.  It was perfect snow for a snowball fight, perfect packing snow.  While snow fights are fun, tradition at Cornell dictates that tray-ing (using a dining hall tray as a sled) down the slope is one of the mandatory activities that an undergraduate must perform while at Cornell.  While tray-ing didn’t really work for us (we tried snowboarding using a tray, but quickly lost our balance) we did have a number of sleds and we put them to good use.  The one thing about walking up the slope is that it looks deceivingly simple.

Note: I risked my life to get these pictures, I was almost run over by multiple sleds.
