Hamptonians traded in textbooks for snow-capped mountains as they embarked on a week-long ski adventure to Wagrain in Austria.

A group of 60 Third Year Hamptonians took to the Alpine slopes, ranging from novices tackling nursery pistes to more seasoned skiers confidently navigating various runs, aided throughout by superb weather conditions. With tailored guidance for each pupil, the beginners quickly graduated to parallel skiing and the intermediate and advanced groups headed to the steep black runs, which reached the dizzying heights of over 2,000 metres.

After conquering the slopes, the Hamptonians enjoyed plenty of apres-ski activities including a thrilling tobogganing session, as well as as visit to a local water park. Hamptonians also made the most of their evenings, and between rest and relaxation, they enjoyed film nights, room inspection raps, five-a-side football matches and even a basketball tournament.

The week reached its peak on Thursday when the pupils applied all they had learnt and took part in a thrilling timed slalom competition followed by a mountainside presentation to all our adventurers for conquering the slopes.
