Quick post just to wrap up this year’s trip.
Firstly, hope everyone enjoyed the trip – the skiing did seem rather good and the speed of progress for the beginners especially this year was nothing short of astounding. Well done the students!
Well, where do we start today? The fog had lifted by the morning and we have were able to see today. This also meant that everyone else was able to see us, which for some was quite embarrassing seeing some of the fancy dress costumes people wore! We had the customary group photo on the hill outside the restaurant before we all headed off for a first run down the cruisey blue en masse.
We were up bright and early ready for the first lift at 9am. All those that had been only on the dry slope made their way over to the nursery slopes and after a few short runs managed to get on the button lift. They did so well that we managed to get them all up to the top of the mountain before lunch, something we have never done before. All managed to get back down to the restaurant for lunch some later than others. There were some very relieved and hungry students, (and a boiled egg aka Erin!) most were still smiling!
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.
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.
CALLING ALL NOTLEY STUDENTS!
There will be an important ski meeting on Wednesday lunch time 3 Feb, in the Gym. Please be there at the start of lunch 1.35pm
Another beautiful day on the slopes today with lots of skiing by all the groups. No promotions today but lots of fun had by all.
The final itinerary has been uploaded to the website now. There are a few minor changes so please spend five minutes and read it thoroughly.
