CCF take to the slopes in Bavaria
The annual CCF Ski Trip to Bavaria took place at the start of this year. 17 pupils gathered at Heathrow airport eager to get on the plane and onto the slopes. The first day of skiing started in the ‘Oberjoch’ area, with a mixture of blue and red pistes covering a large area, making for a perfect place to kick off the trip.
The next couple of days saw the group branch out to larger and steeper slopes in the Heuberg/Ifen/Walmendingerhorn area. With fantastic views from around 6,000 feet, the ski resort was a real highlight of the trip. Black and red pistes served as adrenaline fuelled challenges for the group, allowing them to perfect their carving technique as well as practising shorter radius, S-shaped turns.
The beginner group, who had never stood on skis prior to the trip, took to the sport with ease and under their instructors’ guidance, were all handling blue slopes with ease and were even skiing portions of red slopes.
The evenings were spent in the lodge playing games and drinking hot chocolates – very well deserved after a day’s intense skiing and falling!
