Ski Trip to Salzburger Sportwelt

During the Easter holidays 37 children and 6 staff set off to the beautiful ski resort of Salzburger Sportwelt in Austria for a week of skiing. The trip began with a rather long coach journey but Mr Brooks and Mr Umhoefer entertained them with lots of games before they arrived in Kuchl. 

Every day was filled with excitement but particularly the first, when all the children were skiing for the first time.  They began on the nursery slopes and then after lunch were split into groups according to their ability.  The week had a variety of weather from blue skies to constant snow falling but the children went from strength to strength.  The pizza snow ploughs were improving and by Wednesday some of the beginners headed up on the chair lifts onto the ‘big’ mountain.  

The more advanced were having a great time enjoying the ‘Fun Slope’ where pupils ducked through hoops, skied over large bumps and gave high fives to robots with padded hands! 

Lunches were enjoyed in a variety of restaurants and in the evening they ate like Kings and Queens back at the hotel with Wiener Schnitzel being a particular favourite!

By the final day Blue, Red and Black runs were all being conquered and the children had all improved dramatically.  It was a fantastic week and the Chandlings Prep children did themselves and the school proud.

A huge thank you to all the staff who went on the trip.  Wonderful memories were made along with some much improved skiers!
