The year 9 ski trip to Zell am See was very successful! Despite unseasonably warm conditions, we could still ski and enjoy the mountain every day. Most of the slopes were open and we had some sunshine and most importantly, no rain. We had 5 total beginners, all of whom made excellent progress and were not only able to ski all the way down the mountain on Schmittenhohe, but could also join us on the glacier at Kaprun on the last day. The more advanced skiers and our lone snowboarder (Prokop) worked on refining technique and many couldn’t resist jumping from every bump they could find. We had lots of fun off the slopes too, with traditional Austrian 9 pin bowling, quizzes, watching the local team win at ice hockey and a party on the last night.
