Merton Court School Easter ski trip 2017
51 children and parents attended this year’s ski trip to the French resort of Les Deux Alpes.
We stayed at the Hotel La Belle Etoile, within walking distance of the ski lifts. We had fantastic skiing conditions and fresh snow during the week.
The children and adult learners made great progress and by the end of the week everyone was skiing blues, reds and even some black runs!
Apres-ski events included swimming in an open-air pool, 10-pin bowling, movie night, bingo, quiz night & a cocktail evening!
It was a fabulous trip - with great snow and great skiing.
Details of next year’s trip have been finalised; we will be going to Tignes/Val d’Isere, staying at an incredible 2100m, and again skiing at high altitudes in Europe’s most snow-sure resort. Booking forms are available from Mr Brady.
