Into the White

On Saturday 19 January, 33 St Christopher’s Year 5 and 6 students flew to Geneva ready to start a week’s skiing holiday in the resort of Anzere.

Preparation for the trip was intense and a few months of specialised fitness training ensured that all students were ready to embrace the rigours of skiing. Before departure, excitement was high and the students were looking forward to the colder climes of Switzerland.

Huge thanks goes to our sponsor, Alba, whose support provided body-warmer jackets for the students to wear on the trip.

For some of the students, it was the first time they had skied or even seen snow. But by the end of the week, and with the amazing help of Viamonde Ski Company, all students had mastered the red runs and some had even conquered the black pistes.
