    Hey CBPSN members! Just want to let you know you are going to enjoy this trip! I went last month with WHPH and it was an awesome experience. As a first time skier I was a little hesitant, but Kristin and Joy were very motivational and encouraging. All the accomodations were taken care of....all you have to do is bring your courage. Oh and on the trip home, you'll have a little something to rejuvenate you after a day on the slopes ;-) Will def kick it with WHPH Chicago again!
