If you plan on skiing and snowboarding a lot you can take PHED 125, section 51.

It is a one-credit ski and snowboard class. The class is self-study. Students are responsible for their own tickets, equipment and transportation, according to instructor Christopher Cindric. “[Students] need to ski/snowboard at least six times at any resort in the world throughout the quarter and then submit your tickets or a copy of their season pass as proof,” said Cindric.
