Ski Trip 2024

It was a fun-filled February half-term for 42 of our students who have just returned from another fantastic Ski Trip to the wonderful ski resort Pila, situated in the Italian Alps!

Despite a slow start to the trip, with a few unexpected travel delays, the experience was well-worth the long coach journey! 

Students spent their days taking part in brilliant ski and snowboard lessons, available for all levels of ability; resulting in everyone improving their skills - especially our beginners who made outstanding progress up the mountain! We then spent our evenings taking part in a variety of apre-ski activities, including bowling, exploring the old town of Aosta followed by a traditional Italian pizza night and a ski instructor presentation where all of our skiers were awarded with certificates demonstrating the progression they had made throughout the week. The highlight of our evening activities was ice-skating, where student Robin (a competitive ice-skater) treated us to a display of amazing tricks! Although for other students, this proved more dangerous than skiing, resulting in a few bumps and bruises!

We celebrated our final day on the slopes by wearing fancy dress, which everyone embraced with hilarious costumes! Blue skies and sun greeted us for most of the week, but on this day in particular it decided to snow, which only added to the fun - it's not every day you end up in a snowball fight with a group of Teletubbies! 

All the students were brilliant throughout the week, and not only developed new skills but all came away with new friendships with students who they had never met or spoken to before at college. Overall, it was a very successful trip and was not only enjoyable for the students, but also for the staff, who had the pleasure of working with the students who came.

Louise and Ash have already started working on next year's trip which will be to Andorra!
