Cronton College’s Alps Expedition
Public Services students at Cronton Sixth Form excursed on a fantastic journey to the glorious French Alps for a week long skiing trip at the Alpe d’Heuz ski resort.
The annual ski trip is a favourite event for students at the College in which they can enjoy many exciting activities and spend time tackling the slopes at the stunning resort.
Upon arrival, the students were kitted out with boots and skis ready to get out onto the slopes. Surrounded by breath taking scenery the students participated in two hours of tuition in the mornings followed by two hours of free time in the afternoon to explore the slopes for themselves.
Some of our more advanced skiers boasted the incredible achievement of tackling Europe’s longest black run, The Sarenne, running for 16 Kilometres!
After returning from a magnificent day of skiing, the students had some time to enjoy other exciting activities such as luge, ice skating, table tennis, pool and games nights. At the end of the trip the skiing instructors held a small ceremony congratulating the students, presenting them with certificates to show the level of skill they had completed for the week.
Hannah Bolton, Sport and Public Services Tutor at Cronton said, “The feedback from every student on the trip has been great, overall they had such an amazing time. We can’t wait for next year’s trip.”
