Festive Fun on the Slopes!

Festive Fun on the Slopes!

December 2014 and the new year saw 89 students and 10 members of staff enthusiastically  take to the slopes in Alp D’Huez for a week after a delayed journey and promise of very little snow. On the eve of our arrival 50 cm settled providing beautiful skiing conditions. Five hours of ski school a day proved exhausting yet hugely productive for the students and the three hearty home cooked meals provided by the hotel were most welcoming.  Evening activities, led by the Equity ski reps were a hit; ice skating, swimming, a couple of quizzes, fashion shows and fireworks were enjoyed immensely, most often accompanied with a steaming cup of hot chocolate. The trip was a huge success with only one small broken bone which failed to prevent any skiing! Huge thanks to all who took part.
