WELLACRE embarked on its annual winter Ski trip to Austria, heading off for adventure on the mountains of the Hochalm piste.

Located just outside Hinterglemm our students and staff stayed in the family-run Jugendpension Berghof and engaged in a fantastic and rewarding half term experience. All level of skiers were catered for, with beginners enjoying their first outings on the gentle slopes in Hinterglemm and the more experienced skiers making their way to the ski lifts, allowing them to explore the whole of the Saalbach-Hinterglemm valley.

Before traveling to Austria, Mr. J. Duffy, Teacher of PE, organised both beginner and intermediate ski sessions at the Chill Factore for our students, allowing for a full and exciting experience whilst away . These group sessions proved very popular and our students were able to bond as a team whilst learning new skills like understanding how to link parallel turns, enabling them to ski directly from their hotel to the slopes.

Our huge thanks to everyone at the Jugendpension Berghof and to Mr J. Duffy for organising another fantastic trip, ably supported by Mr. P. Bittles.
