Monday 4th December – Skiing/ Verbier Hunt/ Music Video

What an amazing first day on the slopes for our International school from Spain. Although quite a cold start to the morning, the sun came out and was shining the whole day, which is always a great way to start the week on the snow!

The snow conditions were awesome as all our students ventured onto the mountain for their first day getting their ski/snoboard legs back! All the instructors were really impressed with the level of skiing and the enthusiasm from all of the students. With a hot lunch on the mountain, all the students managed to get a full day of skiing!

After skiing, it was time for some snacks and hot chocolate back at Les Elfes before a venture into town for the Verbier Hunt. Splitting the students into small teams, the challenge is to answer all the questions by finding clues and answers around town. Although quite chilly, all the tems enjoyed the hunt, and are awaiting the results at the end of the week….

Back in the warm and time for some dinner, followed by the students making their own music quiz. Choreographing their own moves to their section of the song, the students had loads of fun creating their masterpiece.

Everyone will sleep well tonight….
