16th Feb - An altogether fantastic day in Austria for everyone on the ski trip - staff and students included. Groups 1 & 2 had their usual blast across the mountains with some of them giving the instructors a run for their money!
However, the stars of the day were undoubtably the beginners groups 3 & 4. Most of these students had never stepped on a pair of skis before Sunday, but after a couple more hours tuition this morning they headed up to their first proper run down the mountain in the afternoon. Not only did everyone make it down in half the time estiumated by the instructors, they managed two more runs top to bottom before the end of the day. Well done to all of them.
After a quick swim in the local swimming pool (with most braving the outdoor pool too!) it was back to the hotel for a birthday celebration. Our thanks go to Franz for making such a lovely cake!
