During the December holiday period, the annual school ski tour took place. A group, totaling almost 50 strong, flew to the much favoured resort of Bormio, taking up residence at the splendid Hotel Nevada. The resort itself is a World Cup Championship host and has everything.
An earlier dusting of snow ensured the team arrived to a wonderful wintry setting, no artificial snow required for this tour! With the groups split across beginner, intermediate and advanced runs, they enjoyed five days of excellent skiing and the luxury of ample slope space. They covered many kilometres and left no snow untouched - our beginners even reached the highest point of the resort, 3,012m!
Evenings were spent relaxing, shopping in the resort and enjoying the occasional hot chocolate, crepe, ice-cream and cake, lots of it too! The group also visited Bormio Terme Spa, to help reinvigorate tired bodies. A magical week was had by all and home in time for Christmas!
