Having fun on the slopes was ‘snow’ problem for a group of students from Cromwell Community College.

Thirty-one Year 8 to Year 13 students and four accompanying teachers recently enjoyed their annual ski trip to Hochfugen in Austria.

The students all really enjoyed the trip which involved five hours of intensive ski lessons every day. All of the students showed amazing determination and dedication and they made considerable progress on the slopes, with even the elite group of skiers tackling the most challenging black runs by the end of the week.

However it was not all skiing – the party also enjoyed visiting a thermal baths, traditional skittle ally, pizza night and finished the holiday with an après ski disco at the end of the week.

All the teachers were so proud of the students and they represented the college in an exemplary way at all times and look forward to hopefully repeating the trip next year too.

Ski trip co-ordinator Mr Kennedy said: “Towards the end of the week each of the groups took part in their very own professional ski race with electronic start and slalom gates. The races were very competitive and congratulations to Will Grant who won the elite skiers race, Lauren Stevenson winner of the intermediate group and also Paige Furnell who came first in the beginners group. All skiers completed the course in record time and everyone received a medal and certificate for participating which were greatly treasured by the students.”
