During February half term I had the pleasure of leading my first Windsor Ski trip to Wildshonau in Austria. After a very long journey students were met with extraordinary hot weather making their first few days on the mountain extremely hard going. Side stepping up the mountain for several hours and spending much time picking each other up gave us lots of laughter but also demonstrated a great tenacity and desire by students to improve their skiing technique and make it to the top of the mountain.
I am pleased to report that all 47 students and 6 members of staff achieved this by the end of our 5-day adventure. Spending our evenings ten pin bowling, swimming or attending the hotel disco gave students very little time to rest, but their enjoyment and impeccable behaviour was never in question.
Staff and students comments include:
‘A holiday I’ll never forget’, ‘The best holiday I’ve ever been on’, ‘Thank you for taking us to new heights!’.
