Foyle College have just recently returned from another very successful ski trip. This year’s trip proved to be immensely popular, with the school taking a record 86 pupils from Year 9. We were based in the high altitude resort of Les Menuires between Saturday 28th February and Saturday 7th March. The accommodation was excellent with the ClubHotel Piolet having direct access to the slopes.
Les Menuires has superb skiing for all abilities and we were lucky that the weather during the week provided an ideal mix of sunshine and snow. Although the vast majority of pupils had never skied before, they made tremendous progress – by the fourth day, some of the groups were comfortably going down red runs.
The resort also had many fantastic après-ski activities – bum boarding, tobogganing, Speed Mountain, swimming – which added to the enjoyment of the trip. Staff and pupils would like to thank all of the SkiBound staff who helped make the trip so memorable. The school will soon be launching the 2016 trip for current Year 8 pupils – details of the Presentation Evening will be forwarded to parents shortly.
