Hitting the Piste – Alderwasley’s 2019 Ski Trip

Students and staff at Alderwasley Hall School has just returned from their skiing trip to Pila in the Aosta Valley, Italy. The annual ski trip is open to young people in key stage 3, 4 and 5.

After an orientation visit to the town on the first night students got an early night, to get rested and ready for their first day on the slopes and the ski school which ran from 10am to 3pm each day.  The first day saw everyone making it down the slope on two feet, however one group did take the 20 minute gondola trip to the top, only to find that they’d left their ski’s at the bottom with a member of staff!

The weather conditions were fantastic for the duration of the trip and all the young people made fantastic progress, some even venturing from the nursery slopes and further into the mountains.
