Monday 17th February 
Another brilliant day on the slopes, lots of snow, lots of skiing and a bunch of extremely well behaved students. All groups made great progress today with many going down red and black runs. We finished the day with a relaxing visit to a 5* spa with outdoor thermal pools, just what we needed for our tired legs! 

Sunday 16th February 
We have all had a fantastic day of skiing, it snowed all day up on the glacier and was really beautiful! After a day in ski school the 3 beginners groups quickly picked up all the skills and are ready to hit the slopes properly tomorrow.  The advanced group were off....straight on the black runs! 

We are ready for dinner and quiz night and will be up and out early tomorrow for another fab day skiing.

Saturday 14th February
After a very long coach ride we finally arrived in Zell am See at about 6pm last night. We went straight to the ski shop to get kitted out ready to hit the slopes and had a quick look around the town in Zell am See. Back to the hotel; it is very welcoming and had a three course dinner ready for us. Then, much needed bed time!

We are feeling very lucky to have arrived, especially as ours was the last boat that made it across the Channel Friday night. We have been so impressed with the behaviour of students on the trip. They behaved impeccably well for the whole journey and made all of the adults very proud.  

There is not a huge amount of snow in our resort at the moment so our instructors are taking us to a glacier today where there is lots of snow and much needed space for beginners!
