Prior Park College – Brilliant Ski Trip to Bormio

15 Jan 2014

Early in the Christmas holidays, forty students and staff headed to Bormio for a fantastic week of skiing in the stunning region of Bormio.

Below is a report from Steve Capon, Director of PE and Sport at the College:

On 14 December, thirty-eight students and four staff members left for the annual ski trip, this time to the beautiful resort of Bormio in Italy. Bormio is an ancient spa town with a mediaeval centre and played host to World Cup downhill and slalom runs. We stayed in the superb Hotel Nevada, situated adjacent to the main gondola out of town. The group enjoyed fabulous conditions, blue skies and sunshine and excellently maintained slopes. All students thoroughly enjoyed the excellent instruction from the Anzi Ski School and made great progress on the slopes. In the evenings, a varied entertainment programme included a treasure hunt, a quiz, ice skating, a disco and the customary “Prior’s Got Talent Show”. This year’s winners were Lower 5 students James Dorey and Will Maxwell, singing a medley of songs from the past thirty years! The hotel management were superb in their care of our party during this trip and we look forward to returning next year.
