High School skiers make the most of perfect conditions

High School of Dundee skiers traveled to Alpendorf in the Eastern Alps just before the Christmas holidaysA group of High School of Dundee skiers had snow problem making the most of some ideal conditions in which to enjoy their passion!

Just before Christmas, a group of 45 pupils, accompanied by six members of staff, journeyed to the Austrian village of Alpendorf in the Eastern Alps for the annual F3 ski trip.

With snow falling continuously and plenty of space on the slopes, the young winter sports enthusiasts had the perfect opportunity to develop their skills. And they took full advantage of it to the extent that, by the end of the trip, members of the beginners group found themselves skiing down some challenging red runs, while some of the more advanced skiers had even ventured as far as the neighbouring slopes of Wagrain.

Following the daily excitement on the pistes, the pupils also had the chance to go bowling and swimming. 

Head of Art Adam Kerr, who was on the trip, said, "The pupils were treated to ideal conditions in the Austrian mountains, where it hardly stopped snowing all week.

"They all seemed to enjoy the challenge and it was fantastic to witness the amazing development that the pupils were able to demonstrate in a short space of time."
