Day 0 (Travelling)

After the coach to the airport had got lost and done three laps of Maidenhead it finally picked us up at 4.30am (half an hour late!). Even though it was late we still arrived at the airport early and the bag drop off wasn't open. We strolled around the airport to get a snack and a drink. We then boarded the plane and went to our seats. The Plane did not start to move for 20 mins (due to the French!) The flight journey was very turbulent and it was bouncy. We then arrived at Geneva Airport and went on a 2:30 hour bus journey! (meh) It was very long and slow and we went up the mountains across the roads (bendy roads) with no edges!! We then arrived to our hotel and went to our rooms.    

 

Day 1 (first day on the slopes)

The day started with a 7:00am wakeup call from Mr.Rayer we then got up and dressed ready for breakfast. After we ate breakfast we went back up to our rooms and got changed into our ski kit. We went down into the ski equipment room and got our skis, poles and boots etc. We then got into are groups (beginner, intermediate, expert) and went to our instructors and met them.  The weather was incredible with wall to wall sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. We all went off and our group *intermediate just went around the slopes and did turns and tricks and went up and down the chairlift and in the afternoon and we went to the snow park and did jumps and it was really funny and quite easy !
