Hi all. Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year.
Now that the holidays are out of the way (boo! etc) it's time to collect in everybody's Passport and EHIC card for safe keeping.
Firstly, please accept my apologies for the delay in sorting out the finances for next years’ Ski Trip to Austria. I had it all reorganised when we were suddenly presented with the possibility of some Ramsey students taking up a significant number of places; this would have allowed us to run the trip as originally proposed. Unfortunately they didn’t take up the opportunity so we are going to run the smaller trip I emailed about a couple of weeks ago.
Looking to buy ski gear for Xmas? Go Outdoors are currently offering 10% discount to students going on school ski trips. Got to be worth checking out! See attached leaflet for details.
The day started with wall to wall sunshine so spirits were high as we made our way up the valley to Zauchensee.
We split into our groups and the beginners made their way over to the nursery slope to practice what they had learnt on the dry slope. After a couple of hours they were ready to head up to the top of the mountain to try out the cruisey blue from the top to the bottom.
After a lot of snowfall last night and all of today the students had a hard day of skiing cut out for them. However all coped very well with the huge moguls and very little visibility. Groups 3 and 4 have massively improved with considerably less stacking than previous days. Group 3 (as per video) did their first Red run from top to bottom with only 2 minor controlled lowerings. They all did amazingly and were very happy with what they had achieved. Groups 1 and 2, as per usual, were going everywhere at speed.
