In summary, they skiied today. The End. ......More? ......Er ok they skied a lot. In fog. LOTS of fog.

Day 1 - Skiing 2016

Day One:

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!

Stop Press

In light of recent events in Les Deux Alps, with the school ski trip avalanche incident, we would like to reassure parents that under no circumstances will your children be taken down any slopes that are closed or prone to avalanche.

Here We Go Here We Go etc.

Well the first day couldn’t have been more different to last year! Everything ran on time, Dover was actually open, the ferry crossing didn’t resemble a scene from Deadliest Catch and the coach was the most comfortable we’ve ever had. 

Day 5 - Flachau and Wagrain

Flachau and Wagrain today, lots of big moguls aka hump back whales! Beginners were skiing reds most of the day, tackling the slush and really showed how much they had progressed from the beginning of the week.

Top group were black running and pole planting in preparation for the GCSE and A-Level assessments. They skied all around the mountain on blues, reds and blacks and had fun on the bumps with a few wipe-outs.
