An incredible blue bird sky day today…. with bright sunshine beaming down on the students faces as they progress in skiing/snowboarding and learn more and more throughout the day. The snow conditions although looking very minimal at low level, up on the mountain is great, with snow perfect for snow plow, parallel and even carving.
After returning from skiing, the student removed their boots allowing their feet to have a break before going upstairs to sign up for afternoon and evening activities. The choices of afternoon activities were shopping, snow games or epic games indoors. Many of the students went shopping after taking a relaxing shower and having some snacks… a few decided to go outside, not getting enough snow and making full use of their winter holiday in Verbier by going sledging and snowman building. This then left just around 10 students who decided to play a game of action packed extreme Uno.. pinning each individual against each other, eventually bringing a winner.
During the evening the students had a wide choice of activities, including cooking, arts and crafts, Photography, Design and build and for some the students went down to the escape room, where the group have a series of challenges to move from one room to another.
16TH FERBRUARY – PERFECT DAY ON THE SLOPES, CLUBS NIGHT, TORCHLIGHT WALK & ESCAPE ROOM
Another perfect bluebird day in Verbier. Clear sunny skies and great powder set the perfect conditions for the campers on the slopes today.
One of the groups started their epic ski touring adventure today, catching the first lift at 8:30 at Medran, trekking up the mountain. After a tough and rewarding hike, the campers finally reached the beautiful and historic Cabane Mt. Fort, where they will be spending the night. The students were lucky enough to talk to the guest speaker, the legendary Swiss Freeride Snowboarder – Emillien Badoux – who shared with them his many triumphs and snowboarding adventures.
The other campers, after returning from another great day of skiing, wined down with a warm cup of a hot chocolate and snacks. They then were spoilt with the choice of either hanging out in campus, shopping and sightseeing around Verbier town, swimming and relaxing in the hot tub, or sledging in the slopes nearby.
Tonight at Les Efles was club night, where our animation team set up many different activities for the campers. At cooking club, the little chefs made delicious apricot and white chocolate flapjacks, learning about kitchen safety and hygiene along the way. Others explored their engineering abilities at Design and Build, where they designed, produced, and tested homemade airplanes. Others got a bit more artistic at arts and crafts, where they made and decorated beautiful ninja squishy balls!!!! At the photography club, the campers wrote their own story lines and produced and filmed their own stop-motion videos.
The individual students also had an amazing evening. One group went on a scenic torchlight walk halfway up the mountain, where they were greeted with stunning views of the shining lights of the Verbier Valley. Another choice was to visit the Escape Rooms, a new live entertainment facility, where the campers had to figure out puzzles and work as a team to “escape” the trapped room in less than an hour.
