Sensational Snow at Torrey Pines High School

Three snow machines and about 500 cups of hot chocolate put students in the holiday spirit on Dec. 21 at Torrey Pines High School. Most students reveled in the snow, stopping to take pictures and pretend they were in some other place than sunny Carmel Valley.

“With everything going on in the world, we wanted to try something fun this year,” said Scott Chodorow, director of student activities at TPHS.

He said the snow machines were out on campus, setting the wintry mood for three days (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) as students wrapped up the semester before their holiday vacation.

“It really gives them that feel-good feeling of the holidays,” he said. Photos/Claire Harlin
