Ski Trip 2017 Blog Day Six

Students enjoyed another brilliant days skiing in good conditions through the morning and afternoon sessions. The evenings activity offer of bum boarding was gratefully rejected by the group in favour of a supermarket visit where upon arrival back at the hotel it had become apparent that the group had all chipped in to buy lovely gifts for staff as a very kind gesture of their gratitude.
 
The group all left for dinner and afterwards found our way to Haralds cafe where the group were offered their choice of pastry or drink with most electing for a hot chocolate. The group then enjoyed some free time before bed with some joining the hotel ran disco and the remainder watching football with staff before a slightly later bed. Hopefully despite the restricted sleep all will arise fresh and prompt for their final day on the slopes.

Ski Trip 2017 Blog Day Five

Today the weather took a sunnier turn and the skiing conditions couldn't have been much better. The group managed to ski the Olympic run which was used for the slalom when Bardonecchia hosted the Winter Olympic Games. Some of the students even managed to start to parallel turn. In the evening some of the group had energy left to use the gym while some used the chance to catch up on some sleep. The group were offered the chance to watch a film in the "theatre" but some elected to go for some free time around the hotel.

Ski Trip 2017 Blog Day Four

Day four has been another good day here at Bardonecchia. The group have all skied brilliantly and evolved into red runs fairly early on in the day. The evenings activities included a few games of pool and a game of table tennis then ice skating after dinner. The group are now all in the hotel enjoying some free time and watching the football. Hopefully the conditions will hold out for the week as the weather began to warm up. Tomorrow we look forward to another trip to the "cinema" and another days quality skiing.
