Day 1 - Austria Ski Trip 2009

After a long journey we have all arrived safely in Austria. We have already been to Flachau to pick up our boots and skis and have spent the afternoon in the local park playing in the snow and practicing our skiing ready for the big day tomorrow. We also had a massive snowball fight which was won by the staff – regardless of what you may be told by any of the students. We've never seen so much snow at this level on any previous trip!

The hotel is fantastic and Elsa the manageress is the friendliest host we’ve ever had. The students are settling in to their home for the week and we’ll all be having a nice early night so we can get up for breakfast at 7am, ready for the first lifts at 8:30
