Pupils Enjoyed Plenty Of Super Skiing In Val Di Fiemme
77 Year 10 pupils visited the traditional Italian ski resort of Val di Fiemme during the Easter holidays where excellent conditions made for plenty of super skiing during their stay.
The party travelled by coach over to Italy 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. On the Monday, the group had a great evening out at a local pizza restaurant where everyone enjoyed the local speciality.
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, so much so that the final day’s downhill races were hotly contested; the winners were delighted with the medals awarded at the presentation evening.
Other entertainment included a disco night in the local night club and lots of exquisite Italian ice cream.
All in all the Princethorpe party had a spectacular time with the 2023 Ski Trip providing a memorable end to a busy Lent Term.
