Forty-two students and six staff set off for the scenic slopes of Austria in February half-term for the annual Wyvern Ski Trip. With students from Years 8, 9 and 10 taking part, it was a great opportunity to make new friends and the friendly hotel in Saalbach again provided a very warm welcome for the group.
Regular snowfall in the week prior to the trip provided perfect skiing conditions and the mountainside location allowed students to ski from the front door of the hotel every day. Overnight snowfall topped up the snow each evening, and during the day the weather was beautiful with bright sunshine at the top of the mountain. Everyone had a tanned face by the end of the week and a couple of panda eyes from their ski goggles!
In addition to skiing, students enjoyed some exciting evening activities, including ice skating at the local rink and a Snow Show where professional skiers and snowboarders showcased their skills. Tobogganing was a new activity this year and will certainly be a regular feature on future trips as everyone loved flying down the floodlit mountain! A fancy dress party, where everyone dressed as Where’s Wally, and a fun awards and games night finished the week.
Students had a fabulous time, variously describing the trip as ‘awesome’ and ‘the best trip ever’! Mr Gregory, who took on the role of Trip Leader this year, added, “What a fantastic week! It was great to see the students enjoying every aspect of the trip and we’ve already started making plans for next year.”
