Skiing in Austria

On the last day of term 33 girls and four members of staff set off on a mammoth coach journey to Austria on the biannual ski trip in search of snow, fun and adventure.


Almost 24 hours later, tired yet buzzing with anticipation, they arrived in the beautiful town of Radstadt, an hour south of Salzburg and just below the resort of Obertauern, where they would spend a week perfecting their skills on the slopes.


In past years, December had always been a slightly risky time to go in terms of snow levels but in this case they were greeted with the perfect Christmas card scene of trees glistening with snow, sleigh bells ringing and (according to one member of the group) definitely a reindeer flying off in the distance!


Snow continued to fall during the week so girls had the experience of skiing on powder as well as on normal pistes and without exception amazing progress was made by all.


After each day's skiing girls were asked to nominate potential candidates for the daily awards and the chance to wear the coveted bibs as 'Star', 'Wipeout', 'Wally' and 'D'oh' of the day.


In the evenings there was a programme of entertainments that included a quiz, a pizza night, a (very competitive) bowling session and a visit to the Salzburg Christmas market.
