Grade 10 Skiing Trip

 

For the second consecutive year, a group of San Anton School Grade 10 (Form 3) students recently went on an Interski skiing trip to Breuil-Cervinia - an alpine resort in the Valle d'Aosta region of northwest Italy, accompanied by their P.E teacher Ms Maria Gloria Camilleri.

Breuil – Cervinia – the queen of snow is an infinite snowy area that begins at 1,524 metres, in Valtournenche, embracing Breuil-Cervinia, rising up to 3,480 metres of Plateau Rosà, touching the 4,000 m peak of Piccolo Cervino and climbing up to 4,478 m to the top of the Cervino (the Matterhorn). This is an area where the infinite snow continues onto the Swiss side to Zermatt.

The group had the opportunity to ski both in Valtournenche as well as Breuil - Cervinia - one of the largest ski resorts in the Alps, with a varied domain skiable beyond compare, stretching through three valleys in two countries, Italy and Switzerland. Varied Ski runs offered the students a chance to ski all day without ever repeating the same run twice, alternating easier runs with those of increased difficulty. Students had the opportunity to see the Matterhorn very closely, have lunch every day in a different mountain restaurant whilst enjoying the amazing views from the Switzerland border too.

The group was accommodated at the beautiful Rendezvous Hotel in the village of Chatillon and participated in a variety of après-ski activities. Students also enjoyed visiting Aosta City and its charming market, as well as other Alpine villages such as Cervinia, Valtournench and also Courmayeur where they enjoyed the wintery atmosphere and traditional delicacies. At the end of the skiing program, the students were presented with an Interski Award Certificate along with a badge to validate their achievement.

During this week, the group learnt the basics, polished their technique, or picked up some more advanced tricks. It was a trip all about learning, improving and having fun in a safe atmosphere with friends in the magnificent area of the Alps. This was definitely one to remember!
