Perfect Conditions for Ski Sansicario 2014
A group of 36 girls and four members of staff from Withington enjoyed perfect conditions on this year’s Half Term Ski Trip.
For the second year running the chosen resort was Sansicario in the Italian Alps – and according to trip leader Mrs Ferrol – it was so successful that plans are already in the pipeline to return there next year. After flying into Turin, the group travelled to their hotel, Rio Envers, to a flurry of snow, a foot falling on arrival day to be replaced by blue skies and sunshine for the remainder of the week.
From beginners through to expert skiers, the girls enjoyed four hours of ski school each day in “amazing conditions”, whilst the evenings were spent with pre-arranged entertainment; quiz nights, DVD evenings and the highlight of the trip, a night time skidoo ride which ended with hot chocolate, crepes and a snowball fight.
Said Mrs Ferrol: “We skied all day, every day, and in the evening we enjoyed great entertainment. And best of all,” she added, ” there were no injuries. We look forward to returning to Sansicario next year.”
The group was made up of girls from the Third Form, Lower Fourth and Lower Fifth, accompanied by Mrs Ferrol, Dr Madden, Mrs Smith and Miss Hardwick.
