The Easter Ski Trip Was A Memorable Affair

03 Apr

52 Year 10 pupils visited the vast Austrian ski area of Salzburger Sportwelt during the Easter holidays where excellent conditions made for plenty of super skiing during their stay.

The party travelled by coach over to Austria and stayed at a friendly well-located hotel where the helpful local staff ensured everything ran smoothly. Accommodation was good and the hotel worked hard to feed our hungry après ski teenagers. One night, the group had a great evening out at a local pizza restaurant where everyone enjoyed the freshly cooked pizzas.

But it was the skiing that everyone was interested in. Beginners, intermediates and advanced, every group benefited from a dedicated ski instructor who coached and fine-tuned their skills and took them out into the resorts. There was a wide choice of runs, from greens up to blacks, so Princethorpe’s downhillers were spoilt for choice. During the week progress was excellent and the instructors were impressed with the fantastic progress made.

Other entertainment included a game of mini golf and a visit to the beautiful Austrian city of Salzburg.

This year's ski trip was not without its challenges but the snow and the skiing was amazing. Our Year 10 pupils behaved impeccably and everyone had a spectacular time. The 2024 Ski Trip certainly provided a memorable end to a busy Lent Term.
