A group of sixty students travelled with staff to Utah for the start of the ski trip in February but were disappointed that after landing at Las Vegas airport, the coach swept down the ‘strip’ without stopping! After 20 hours of travel they arrived in Leyton, tired, yet buzzing with anticipation for the week ahead.

Conditions at the resort were perfect and the next 5 days went by in a blur. The skiing experience was incredible, the slopes perfect, the instructors full of enthusiasm and by the end of the week even the beginners were turning with grace. It wasn’t just the skiing that made the trip an unforgettable experience as they challenged the “all you can eat” principle of many restaurants. Après ski activities included swimming in a local wave pool, lots of shopping at the malls and the highlight was getting the chance to watch a college basketball game.

The students arrived back exhausted but full of tales of the visit and keen to do the whole thing again very soon.
