During the Easter holiday 29 Abbey pupils took to the slopes of the Stubai Glacier. After a long bus journey and an evening preparing our skis and boots we were ready. 3 days of brilliant sunshine followed, this made for really good conditions for all groups, beginners to advanced, to make really good progress. On the fourth day we were faced with some heavy snow that really put our skills to the test. With the help of our 3 fantastic instructors all pupils were able to tackle a wide range slopes from wide calving blues to some tough mogul red runs. With ten-pin bowling and swimming thrown in this really was an action packed trip.
Preparations for next year’s trip have already begun and I hope you are looking forward to it as much as I am. Finally I must say a huge thank-you to Miss Theobald, Mr French and Matron for all their help on the trip.
