2013-02-25T15:49:48+00:00February 8th, 2013|

We can't believe that the week has gone so quickly. The children should remember their trip for the rest of their lives; they have been so lucky to have had some of the best ski conditions imaginable to end their ski trip. Presentations took place after their 5 hours in lessons and the instructors gave [...]

As the Bee Gees once said “How deep is the snow, is the snow, how deep is the snow … We need to learn to ski … Coz we’re falling in it waist deep … We make such a heap … And should all get more sleep” (You see we’ve all [...]

2013-02-25T15:47:56+00:00February 6th, 2013|

Well, they promised snow and we got it! In fact, when we peered out the window this morning we thought that the world had disappeared. About a foot fell over night. The students have coped very well with the conditions and we like the fact that they disappear like the gorillas [...]

Looking out of the window now, at bed time, there is a blizzard going on outside. The snow is horizontal and there must be at least 15 cm that have settled in the last hour. That said, we have been very lucky with the weather during our ski lessons today. The [...]

We’ve had a mixed bag of weather today. The morning was bright with light snow showers and the afternoon started off sunny and finished in complete fog. Miss Escritt tried to con the beginners, who she shared a gondola lift with, that as they rose through the cloud layer and were [...]

2013-02-25T15:42:10+00:00February 3rd, 2013|

‘S no joke! It snowed all day yesterday; snowed all night; then stopped just in time for us to go out and sample the delights of the super sport, ‘skiing’. Those who had skied before couldn’t wait to go out and play in the powder and those who had never skied [...]

2013-02-25T15:25:32+00:00February 2nd, 2013|

The day started exceptionally well with an unsociable 3 am start, but despite this we had a really cheerful bunch of students and parents. The journey to Gatwick ran very smoothly. Our friendly coach driver informed us that he knew Andover well as he raced whippets at Ludgershall. What he hadn’t [...]
