New Information: ONLY THE TOP SCHOOL GATES ONTO CUMBERLAND YARD will be open tomorrow and on our return.
The bi-annual UCC Ski Trip departs on Saturday 15th at around 12.30pm. Some 25 students and 6 staff members will be heading to our usual destination of Pila high in the Italian Aosta Valley at the foot of Mont Blanc.
The resort and Area is run by Interski who have served us well over the years and who provide the students with all the necessary ingredients for a fun packed visit.
The students will experience 6 days of instructed skiing with great après ski visits also included. The package also includes lift passes, accommodation, equipment, transport and meals.
The Ski area offers both challenging and easy runs so that beginners progress and those who are more capable also make great advances.
Our base is the Hotel Rendez-vous in Chatillion some 25 minutes down the valley towards Turin with all accommodated in either 2 or 3 bedded rooms.
Reays are our coach company for this visit and we sail from Dover late on Saturday evening making the same return crossing early on Sunday 23rd February.
The weather forecast for the week shows some days of blue skies and some days of snowfall so we look set for the best conditions possible.
