Ski Trip 2023 - Part 2
We are back from the most fantastic week in Austria with 33 wonderful skiers! It was incredible to see the progress of the pupils throughout the 5 days with everyone managing to explore the mountain taking on blue, red and even black slopes! Each day, the pupils had 5 hours of skiing with their instructor and they were able to eat at a variety of restaurants within different areas of the ski resort. We had plenty of sun and even a huge amount of snow in the final two days, this meant that everyone could experience the variety of conditions that the mountain has to offer! Alongside the fantastic (and full on!) days on the slopes, the pupils also enjoyed a range of evening activities. The hotel had a huge variety of facilities including football, volleyball, basketball, table tennis and much much more meaning everyone was entertained at all times!! The food was delicious and it was important to refuel after tiring days on the slopes. On our second night, the teachers organised a quiz and the teams enjoyed working together to test their knowledge in a range of subject areas including sport, general knowledge and capital cities, the Year 10s came out victorious on this occasion! Another highlight was the evening at the swimming pool, not only did it have multiple pools, indoor and outdoor, but there were also three impressive (and somewhat terrifying!) water slides that were a big hit with the group! Towards the end of the trip, we also enjoyed some bowling in Salzburg, without barriers it meant that the scores were fairly low, but plenty of fun was had by everyone, including the teachers who had a very close game with our IBT rep coming out on top by just 1 point! Overall, it was a brilliant week packed full of fun and laughter and some epic skiing too.
