Flachau Ski Trip 2023

Posted: 15th May 2023

The first week of the Easter break saw the return of the Dulwich Prep London Ski Trip. Forty-seven pupils from Years 6 to 8 set off the day after term finished to Flachau, Austria.

After a good first night’s rest and a morning of ski hire, the boys were straight onto the slopes and embracing the challenge. Conditions were less than ideal on the first day, with minimal snow on the slopes, but luckily, a whole night of snow set up for a brilliant rest of the week.

After five hours of lessons each day, you would think the group would be ready for bed, but they were full of energy and ready to embrace the evening entertainment. They would typically enjoy the sports hall, trampoline park or table tennis. On the Tuesday, the group enjoyed a Tyrolean evening, taking part in traditional dance and music, a brilliantly entertaining evening which the group threw themselves into.

Twenty-one boys were either beginners or second-time skiers; they demonstrated tremendous courage and perseverance throughout, taking on the challenge and continuously improving their technique, whilst the more experienced skiers were off exploring the mountains and looking to refine their skiing. The last day culminated in each group racing down the mountain and trying out their top speeds.

The final highlight was the group riding on the Lucky Flitzer, a thrilling toboggan ride down the mountain, reaching top speeds of up to 40km/h. Whether it was an improvement on the slopes, the local cuisine or the evening entertainment, it was undoubtedly a ski trip to remember.
