Wallace pupils take to the slopes

The Wallace group

The Wallace group

ON February I1, 22 enthusiastic and excited Wallace pupils embarked on the annual ski trip to Waterville Valley, situated in the White Mountain Range in New Hampshire, USA.

After a long first day of travelling the group finally made it to the Snowy Owl Inn Resort.

Throughout the week they spent a total of 20 hours on the slopes, split between the two resorts of Waterville Valley and Loon Mountain. The first two days were spent at Waterville Valley and under the tutelage of ski instructors everybody enjoyed two fabulous days of skiing and by the end of the second day even the beginner group had made it down part of a blue run.

On Day three they switched to the Loon Mountain Resort and everybody rose admirably to the challenge of new exciting trails and slightly trickier skiing conditions.

The advanced and intermediate groups explored all sides of the mountain and conquered many of the black runs while the beginner group began to gradually master the blue slopes.

On the final afternoon of skiing the three groups came together and travelled up to the top of the mountain, enjoying the spectacular views from North Peak before skiing the whole
way down the mountain - a great end to five days of exhilarating skiing.

As well as spending time on the slopes, the group also took part in numerous après ski activities each night including cheering on the away team at an ice hockey match much to the chagrin of the home fans, a great evening shopping at an outlet centre, a fiercely contested water polo competition and a mini awards ceremony at which some of the funniest and most memorable moments of the week were relived. Finally, to top off a great week the group spent a day in Boston shopping before heading to Boston airport for the journey home.
