With winds gusting to dangerous levels, and travel being disrupted up and down the country, we had news, early on Saturday morning, that our flight the next day had been cancelled. It was looking likely that the Junior ski trip might not go ahead, so we raced to find an alternative.
Finally flying out on Tuesday, we hit the slopes for four days of incredible sunshine and snow, and I think it’s fair to say that it didn’t feel much different to a usual King’s Junior ski trip.
With five hours skiing each day, there was a notable improvement in ability across the full range of skiers, beginner to those more advanced. The instruction was first class, and big distances were covered.
The evenings were full and fun-packed. We enjoyed our handmade artisan crepes so much that we went back to the same restaurant for handmade burgers and burritos later in the week. We went tenpin bowling and had a pizza night in a local restaurant. No King’s ski trip is complete without Karaoke night. It was great to see one member of the party, in particular, step up to reveal their inner showman! Our presentation evening finished off the trip, and there were some tired faces on the journey home, following the early morning departure. This wasn’t just a few days salvaged, it was a great trip.
