I-500: Annual snowmobile race held at a one-mile oval behind the Norris Center the first Saturday of February.
SHIP'S HORN: The nemesis of all opposing goaltenders at the Taffy Abel Arena. The authentic ship's horn is mounted high on the wall behind the goal the visitors defend for two periods. It blasts for each Laker goal and following all home games. The horn operates on compressed air.
SNOWMAN: What traditionally burns every March at LSSU. The Snowman Burning, first implemented by legendary LSSU Public Relations Director W.T. Rabe, is derived from a German tradition in which the mayor of the town burns a snowman every March to declare an end to winter. LSSU did not hold its annual Snowman Burning in 1992, and the following summer was one of the coldest in recent memory. In 1993, the Snowman Burning resumed, leading to one of the warmest summers in recent memory. Go figure!
