We were not able to advance up the slopes today due to bad weather and poor visibility, however, this was a blessing in disguise. All groups were able to focus on their core skills whilst improving their ability on the smaller slopes. The bottom group continued to make great progress, the middle group practiced arial manoeuvres and the top group learnt to ski backwards.
Sometimes in the pursuit of heading to the highest peaks we forgot to improve on our fundamentals, today allowed the students to tune back in and improve their ability which will undoubtedly will help them within the forthcoming days. This afternoon the students enjoyed a spot of bowling and arcade games, after dinner we discussed in our groups who should win the prestigious title of ‘Donkey of the Day,’ on this occasion Jack Wardley won for his attempt to go down the slope with only one ski; oblivious that the other one had become unattached. We anticipate a heavy dump of snow tonight ready for tomorrow, this will allow the students to demonstrate all their newly perfected skills from today. Again, a fantastic attitude from the students who are highly regarded in the hotel and around the resort.
