The Ashcombe School

Ski Trip

67 students and 9 staff departed Ashcombe on Friday 9th February heading for the Alps. After a long journey we arrived in snowy Morzine ' a tranquil alpine town in Eastern France. Getting 67 pupils through ski boot fitting wasn't easy and watching novices try on ski boots for the first time was definitely entertaining.

The ski resort of Morzine stretches to ' Les Gets' up to the peaks of Chamosseire and Pointe de Nyon. The vast resort was full of a series of blue, red and black runs with most being open due to the incredible amount of snow for the season. There were enough students for 3 beginner groups and 3 groups ranging from intermediate to expert.

All the students had a fantastic time and were an absolute delight to take on the trip. It was really lovely to see lots of students try something new and others develop their skills in something they are so passionate about. Many thanks to all the staff who gave up their half term to be involved!
