Ski Club returns from Austria

Abilities ranged from first-time skiiers to three-year veterans

During the February half term, some 40 pupils travelled to Austria to enjoy a week of skiing in the Alps.

39 pupils from Years 7, 8 and 9 took part in the annual Ski Club trip in the middle of February, with staff and pupils departing the school on the Friday night after school broke up for the half term holidays. They travelled through the night by coach and ferry to Austria, arriving in the Ziller Valley section of the Alps mountain range by midday Saturday.

During the week away, the pupils were split into groups based on their previous experience, with newcomers taught how to ski. More experienced skiiers took to the slopes and challenged themselves on different terrains. While they spent the days skiing, in the evening the hotel offered other activities such as indoor football and basketball pitches.

After just under a week in Austria, the group travelled back to England during the weekend before the second half term commenced.
