Twycross Ski – Sauze d’Oulx 2017


Once again Twycross House skiers from the Sixth Form and Senior 5 headed south during the February half term on the 1500 mile round trip to Sauze d’Oulx in Italy for the school ski trip.

As we ascended to the snowy slopes for the first day, skiers were sorted into groups and took to the slopes. It was good to see that the beginners, who had completed ski lessons at the Snowdome, were off quickly onto the main pistes after a morning on the nursery slopes. From the second day onwards, the sun shone and everyone enjoyed the extensive runs of the Vialattea ski area. At the end of the week the instructors awarded certificates to their groups and were very complimentary both about the skiing and the company of their skiers.    

Après ski activities included a quiz night arranged by Miss Clift, a sports evening organised by Mr Knight and Miss Robinson, as well as a trip to a local Pizza restaurant.

After a week that passed quickly in a blur of sun, snow and skiing, it was with some relief that we settled back on our coach for the long trip home with weary limbs and tired bones …..and thoughts of  the next Twycross ski trip in 2019.
