Ski Trip to Folgaria, Italy

On Sunday 24th February Grosvenor’s Ski trip delegation 2013 returned to Belfast following an enjoyable and exhilarating week of alpine activity in Folgaria, Italy.

Departing from Dublin on Saturday 16th February and arriving in Verona the group travelled two hours to their hotel in Vittoria, Folgaria which would form the base for their skiing over the coming week.  

Participation over the six days was divided amongst three beginners’ groups as well as one advanced group, with instructors Enrico, Lorenzo, Frederico and Jondo providing expertise and support throughout.

The culmination of the week saw awards distributed on the final night, with best beginner going to Chris Allen (Form 4), most improved skier to Alex Gibson (Form 3) and best skier to Ewan Renfrew (Form 2)

The final day was spent on a stop-off in Verona before the group returned in the small hours of Sunday morning.

Many thanks to Mr Young, Mrs Caulfield and Mr Cowan for their organization of and supervision during this most enjoyable of trips.
