Utah State University students awoke Monday morning to a Code Blue Emergency Alert notification that classes for the day were canceled.
According to the university’s Facebook page, it was the first "snow day" in 10 years.
There isn’t a required amount of snow for the school to close down, said Judy Crockett, USU’s emergency management coordinator.
“The President and Vice President have the final say in what is done,” Crockett said.
Utah State students entertained themselves for the day riding snowboards, skis, sleds, a tray from the Aggie Marketplace and even a flamingo pool toy down Old Main Hill.
Courageous skiers and snowboarders flipped off of jumps which started toward the top of the hill and forced the person on the jump to fly across the staircase onto the other side.
Joe Stephen (not pictured), a freshman English major, wanted to make sure no one on the hill got in the way of the makeshift ski jumps.
“I’m making sure everyone stays safe,” Stephen said.
