Ski Tour to Norway 2017
Seven students – from the Upper Third, Lower Fifth and Upper Fifth Forms – went on a week-long ski touring expedition in the Hardangervidda National Park, in Norway. After spending the first two days getting used to the new technique, the group packed their rucksacks and left their base, heading for a remote mountain plateau. A simple hut, at the end of scenic 15km ski, felt like luxury. The conditions worsened overnight, with the sunshine replaced by wind and snow, and the boys set about digging and building a snow hole to stay warm for the night. Although not conducive to the best night’s sleep, it was a definite highlight of the trip.
