Austria Ski Trip 2017

The popular Ski & Board trip to the Austrian Alps was a huge success once again this year. After heavy snow conditions the week before, we arrived to glorious sunshine and perfect skiing conditions all week. More snow arrived on the last day reviling some breath taking views and leaving pupils wanting more days on the mountain.

Wagrain, offers a haven of tree lined runs for our intermediate and advanced groups. Due to the popular after school club at the Chill Factore all of our pupils were able to Ski or Board on arrival. However, it was the instructors job to help our students become familiar with the mountain and manage the various terrains.

This year our pupils did up to 5 hours of Ski lessons per day, which gave them more time to develop their confidence and ability to navigate the mountain with the help of their instructors and teachers. The Apre Ski programme was also packed with fun activities such as Tubbing, Tobogganing and Swimming.

Special mention to Matthew Varley for Snowboarder of the week, Faith Kennedy for Skier of the week. Bethany Whittham for most improved boarder and Charlotte Burns for most improved Skier.

Thank you to the staff for putting the children’s safety and enjoyment first. If you would like to join our extra curricular shred club or sign up for next years trip please see Miss Cooper.
