Ski Trip to Austria

57 St Bart’s Y10 students, along with 8 staff, recently enjoyed the Annual Ski Trip to Zell am See, in Austria. By the end of the week, everyone  was skiing on the blue run!  

After a 24-hour  coach journey across Europe, we arrived on Saturday afternoon at the resort, sorted out skis and boots and then spent a relaxing evening at the hotel. Sunday through to Friday we enjoyed ski lessons during the day, and a range of evening  activities including the Carnival (to celebrate the start of Lent), and the Light Show on the main ski run 
into town.

40 of the students were beginners, but by the end of the week, everyone was able to ski blue runs, and the more
daring skiers tackled the various black runs of the resort. On the penultimate day, the skiers took part in a mini slalom race, and did their best to be more competitive than the staff who were skiing with them. Various awards were earned during the week, however all students should be really proud, whether nominated for  the awards or not, to rising to the challenge.
