During the February half term Eaton Square Senior School took to the slopes of Ponte De Tonale.
Lead by a fantastic group of professional ski instructors, the students attended ski school every morning and afternoon, and I can confidently, and proudly, say that every student made an impressive amount of progress over the course of the week.
Some key highlights include: the advanced group landing some off piste jumps and completing the longest and hardest black run in the whole of the resort; the intermediate group turning their turns from snow plough to parallel; and the beginner group successfully completing a slalom race!

Aside from skiing the students had the opportunity to go tubing, enjoyed a pizza night at a local restaurant, played some very intense games of mafia at the hotel, and became the instigators of the daily lunchtime snowball fight against another school. Although, I regret to inform you that ESS were never victorious, but their efforts were indeed valiant.
Blue skies and sunshine every single day, stunning mountain top views, and a group of exceptional students made this particular ski trip one to remember. A couple of the students gave us some really great feedback about the activities that were taking place whilst out there, click on the following links to view these:
After the success of this trip, we are very excited to announce that the ski trip will be returning in February Half Term 2024. The staff have worked closely with our tour company to make this trip bigger and better than the last, in a more desirable location, more hours worth of ski lessons, and a wider range of options for Apres activities.
