Ski Trip to Zell am See, Austria 2019
In February 2018, Bourne Community College students went to Zell am See in Austria.
What an amazing week! The intrepid team departed Southbourne on a relatively balmy Friday afternoon to awake, fresh as daises, surrounded by mountains covered with snow at our destination. Kaprun, part of the Zell am See/Kitsteinhorn ski area in the heart of Austria, was beautiful, traditional and very friendly.
6 days of intensive skiing saw a huge amount of progress by all. Students experienced all the weather conditions the mountains could throw at them, from perfect sun to blizzards and temperatures down to -19°C!
Students reacted so well to the pace of the week and even enjoyed a swim in the hotel pool after their full days of skiing.
Our action packed evening activities included ice skating, a ski show, an ice hockey match, shopping in the town of Zell am See and a very memorable Karaoke night!
Each night we nominated ‘Donkey of the day’ where people told stories about others people’s funny moments. Our Donkeys of the week were Harry, Miss Harris, Izzy, Tess and Mondo.
