2016 Ski Trip

The 2016 St Mary’s ski to Les Duex Alpes was a huge success. The staff and thirty two students have just returned from an exciting week of skiing, snowboarding and snow-filled fun at the wonderful resort in the heart of the French Alps. Fantastic weather, delicious food (in my opinion!) and a whole host of new friends made for a tiring but enjoyable week, both on and off the slopes.
