Ski & Snowboard Trip - France 2020 and beyond
7-14 March. Alpe d'Huez Ski Area
On 7 March we are away to Alpe D’Huez for the school ski and snowboard trip. Our students have been working all year learning to ski and snowboard at Midlothian Snowsports Centre and Snowfactor in Glasgow and are now looking forward to spending time getting around Alpe D’Huez and experiencing life on snow. We have used Alpe D’Huez many times before and it is a great venue for us. The hotel is just at the bottom of the lift and minutes from town.
If you want to get involved please let Mr Grieve know as we will be opening up spaces for 2021 soon. Please don’t worry if you can’t Ski or Snowboard as we will teach you before you go. It is a great opportunity to get out and learn an exciting activity in the outdoors and have a great time. This trip is open to all S1-S3 students. If you are in P7 and want to go in S1 please contact the school and ask for Mr Grieve as we would like to offer this opportunity to all our feeder Primary schools or students coming to Broughton for next year.
