What a day! The advanced group went to Mount Matta in Italy on a safari for the day. This was a 5.5 hour round trip. En route they passed the 2006 Olympic Bob Sleigh track and skied the Olympic downhill course.
The Intermediate group spent the afternoon in Italy at the border cross doing jumps.
All the beginners have now been to the top of the mountain and skied down. One even tackled a red run.

The students' progress just gets better and better with every group improving and going higher.
After the ski lessons half the student went snow walking up the mountains accompanied by two guides and 4 members of staff. Think they discovered muscles they never knew they had! At the top of the mountain they were rewarded with hot chocolate, marshmallows and stunning views before the descent back to the hotel for dinner.
Comments from today:
Sam: It is very fun learning how to ski. I also love going fast down the slopes. Also Vincent is the best ski instructor.
Alfie: Skiing is really fun and I love going up in the mountains, going down the slopes is fun. Our instructor Patrick is the best instructor and you can't say otherwise.
Connor: I like skiing it is very interesting, sometimes I would completely fall and not be able to get up. My favourite thing to do would be going down a mountain fast. By the way my instructor Patrick was the best.
George: Skiing is decent.
Marighen: Skiing is amazing. It is such a wonder to wake up and participate in such an outstanding sport.
With 6 cms of snow overnight the conditions got even better. Lots of progress was made today with a beginners group going up in a gondola on day 2!
Following the thrill of the slopes we continued with a exciting ride down the luge, a treasure hunt and finished off with a fun packed snow ball fight! The students were ready for their beds.
