Just before Christmas Exmouth Community College took to the slopes of the Italian Alps. Seventeen intrepid adventurers spent a whole week learning to ski or snowboard, perfecting their skills and shredding the pistes. From complete beginner to experienced skier, all had lessons, made huge improvements and developed their understanding of the alpine environment. By the end of the week all the beginners were tackling red runs and beginning to parallel turn.
The snow conditions were excellent,with a huge snowfall just before we arrived and throughout the first day on the slopes. We were lucky enough to get the best conditions that had been seen in resort for nine years.
As well as skiing and snowboarding we all enjoyed apres ski activities such as karaoke, pizza night and Italian gelato. All Exmouth pupils were thanked by their instructors and the hotel staff for being so polite and friendly throughout the week.
