Sunday 10th December: Skiing, Christmas Cookies, The Cube and lots of snow

Snow, snow and snow! Equipped with an infinite amount of warm layers, our group from Singapore went to ski this morning excited to wake up to a fresh layer of snow! After skiing all morning, the kids were glad to stop for a warm lunch and short break. Gloves, Helmet, Goggles and off they went again for some more skiing in the afternoon.

Although they enjoyed skiing, with some kids hitting the slopes for the first time ever, they were glad to return to the camp to find some hot chocolate and food waiting for them. As the snow kept falling, the campers stayed in the warm to bake some Christmas cookies. They split into teams and got started, with some very artistic cookies being made, lots of different shapes and sizes.

In the evening after a yummy dinner, the campers played THE CUBE! IT was a battle against the two teams to see who had the fastest reactions, awesome aim, imagination and most of all teamwork.

Finally, after a long first day, they were quite happy to make their way up to bed, and seem to have already gotten through their jet lag!

Tuesday 5th December – Skiing/Snowboarding/Christmas Cookies/Decorations and Torchlight Walk

Second day on the slopes for our school from Spain and aren’t they improving massively! All the instructors are really happy to be teaching this group, they are all really keen to learn and improve their skiing! The day was yet another glorious sunshining day, which always keeps moral high!

When the campers returned, they got involved with making some scrummy Christmas cookies, which turned out to be delicious! All the groups did well by following the recipe and making some amazing Christmas shaped cookies. The campers also had some time to get a bit crafty and decorate the campus by making some Christmas décorations of their own to hang around Les Elfes.

After dinner, the campers went on a torchlight walk down to the old Verbier Village, which was a nice way to spend the evening. Once back in the warm, by the fire, the campers tucked into some of their homemade cookies and drank some hot chocolate before heading to bed.
