Skiing in Italy

Italy 2017

On the 3rd of February we hit off for Dublin airport in the early hours of the morning as we began our journey to Madonna di Campiglio. On arrival in Milan we took a bus journey which was three hours long up the mountains to reach our resort. The next day we were up early in the morning and headed out for our first ski lesson on the nursery slope. As the day went on we learnt how to ski and we were making progress very quickly.

As the week went on we were split into different groups, with some heading up to the blue and red slopes while others continued to practice on nursery slopes. The rush of adrenaline as you headed down the slopes at high speed was phenomenal. The views from the top of the piste were breath taking.  In the evenings we enjoyed doing activities like bum boarding, shopping and a FIFA tournament. We also had a fierce but friendly snowball fight on the slopes.

For many, this trip will be the highlight of their school years, with some students returning to Italy for the trip next year.
