February 2016 Cultural Activity: Tubing and Ice Sculptures in Colorado

June 28, 2016

Cultural Exchange is the cornerstone of our J-1 program. We plan for at least 2 cultural activities a month, which means we have thousands of participants across the United States experiencing local culture. Cultural activities increase in the participant’s emotional ties to the community they’re living and working in, strengthens the relationships with their colleagues, and introduces Americans to invaluable experiences from the participant’s home culture. 

Participants in Colorado had a great time trying out the winter sport of tubing this February. Participants also went to nearby Breckenridge to see the annual Breckenridge Ice Sculpture Championship. They loved seeing the sculptures made out of snow that were created by artists all over the world!
