Ski Trip to Obertauern
Early Saturday morning a group of 41 students and 6 staff, set off to Obertauern for a week’s skiing and other fun activities. After a day of travelling, a warm welcome greeted the group who then set off to explore their rooms before enjoying a traditional Austrian meal.
A fantastic week of skiing was enjoyed by all, with great ski conditions despite some unusually warm weather. With four ski instructors assigned to the party, there was something to suit everyone based on experience and skill level. Everyone made excellent progress during their four hours of lessons each day. Both beginners’ groups were skiing all the way down the mountain by the end of the week, and the intermediate and advanced groups tackled many of the harder black slopes on offer at Obertauern.
Après-ski was equally enjoyable with plenty of fun activities arranged for the evenings. The first night was spent bum boarding before enjoying hot chocolate under the stars. Other activities during the week included a quiz and fun challenges and activities in the hotel, a pizza night in a local village where students made their own individual pizza, sports games, bowling and the standout favourite – a visit to the local water park.
On the final day there was just time for a four-mile hike to a local café to enjoy a hot chocolate before catching the coach to the airport.
Skiing was obviously the highlight, but the combination of all the evenings’ activities made for a wonderful trip, which was enjoyed by all and will be fondly remembered for a long time. All the instructors, and several members of the hotel, commented on the politeness and thoughtfulness of all of our students, which we were very proud to hear.
