Slippery Slopes 07.03.12

The Senior Skiing Course flew off to Serre Chevalier over February Half Term to enjoy one of the best winters for snow in recent years. The party comprising 24 Grammar School Boys and 8 High School Girls all made rapid progress. From our base next to the lifts in Villeneuve the Advanced group frequently explored the woodlands and even skied to Briancon one day while the complete Beginners group was tearing down blue runs by the end of the week. Days of blue sun-shine skies and evenings of thermal bathing, bum-boarding, skating, crepes and Savoie cuisine made for a wonderful week.
