The Grade 8 ski trip was a great opportunity for new and experienced boarders/skiers to hit the hills, while having a great time with new and old friends. While 4:30 am isn’t the most ideal time to wake up (especially followed by a three-and-a-half hour bus ride), it was still worth it in the end.
By the time we got to the slopes, it was already snowing. Getting on the slopes took no time whether you were in lessons, or just freeriding. My favourite part was learning from falling on my face, which in the end began to happen less and less. I was one of the newbies to snowboarding, but with the guidance of the counselors it didn’t take long to get it.
Overall, it was a great trip, with great teachers and great fun!
