An amazing skiing adventure to Italy
Children from St. Stephen's Junior visited Macugnaga in Italy from the 27th January to the 1st February 2019 on the annual St. Stephen's Junior ski trip. Snow was far lighter than on our previous trips, but still provided for excellent skiing conditions on all slopes throughout the week.
Arriving at the hotel in Pecetto village early Sunday afternoon, children spent the following week skiing, ice-skating, visiting an old mine in the nearby village of Staffa, followed by an exhilirating ride up a cable car to the top of the mountain. There was a lot of cloud cover and snow higher up on the mountain this year, so views of the valleys were restricted, but the fresh air, powdery snow and tasty hot chocolate in the mountain-top restaurant made the trip extremely worthwhile. The group arrived back in Canterbury at around 8pm on Friday the 1st February after a smooth flight from Milan. What an adventure!
