Thursday 22nd March ski race
today was one of the best ski days ever. All the kids were in their competetive mood for the ski race. Trying to ski as fast as their feet allow, the kids really felt the wind on thier face. Luckily, the sun was also bright and shining, which just made everything about the day sweeter.
For lunch, the kids had a lovely barbeque on the mountains. To top it off, there was a super fun snow game between the kids.
After skiing, the kids enjoyed the hot chocolate and some nutella bread to fuel up on energy. After snacks, the kids were prepared for their evening activities of visiting the beautiful village and playing cool games.
While some kids had a yummy home cooked meal, the famous swiss fondue, perfect to warm up in the winter nights, and some went into one of verbier’s restaurant for a fancy italian meal.
After dinner, the kids had a blast on the torchlight walk or playing our favourite music game: la fuerer.
After this day full of good memories our student went to bed thinking about tomorrow…last day on the slopes, excursion and for everyone the prize giving cerimony.
Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for the last bit of excitement of the last day!

It has been a brilliant Friday here in Verbier with tons and tons of snow! It has literally not stopped for 24 hours giving us so much powder to play and ski with.
