Day 6

posted Feb 19, 2016, 3:56 AM by Matthew Gray

The students are out enjoying their last few hours on the slope. It has been an amazing week of skiing, with everyone making great progress. A good time has been had by all.

We will have a couple of hours back at the hotel, with time to shower and eat dinner, before loading the coach and departing for home at 5pm (local time).

All being well, we will be on the ferry at 9am and back to school by 11.30am. 

See you all soon!


Day 5

A glorious sunny day greeted us at Zauchensee this morning. The views from the top of the mountain were stunning.

The students continue to improve as they tackle more challenging pistes. Despite a tiring week, everyone has pushed themselves to the limit and have enjoyed every moment.



Day 4

Today we went to Flachau and the conditions were perfect. Fresh snow and glorious sunshine made for some great skiing.

The students are all making excellent progress and continue to challenge themselves, much to the delight of their instructors. They covered a lot of piste today with a wide variety of ski runs.

Unfortunately, with such a big ski area to cover, photo opportunities were limited, as we rarely met up with each other apart from lunch!


Day 3

Another cloudy day in Altenmarkt, and the students enjoyed an excellent day of skiing.

The intermediate group have been practising their parrallel skiing down the red runs, whilst the top group conquered the black run.

Both beginner groups have been making good progress and have made it up in the gondola to practise the larger blue runs.


Day 2

The weather may have been cloudy in Altenmarkt but it didn't stop us from having another successful day of skiing.

The students worked very hard and everyone is pleased with their progress so far.



 

First Day of Skiing

Day 1 was a chance for the instructors to get to know the ability of the students, and everyone is making steady progress.

The beginners have all made a good start and are showing promise. 

The more experienced skiers in the group have had a chance to warm up and refresh their skills in preparation for a challenging week.

Today we skied from Altenmarkt which is close to our hotel.
