Saalbach 2014 – Ski Trip

Written by HDHS on . Posted in Parent News, School News, Student News

On Friday March 23rd the Harwich and Dovercourt High School skiing students set off on a massive 22 hour journey to Austria. First part of the journey we travelled down to Dover to meet Cassey the lovely PGL rep. We got on the Eurostar at 8:30pm and arrived in France at 9:10pm. Our drivers DJ Steve and Darren powered on through the night and we woke up the next morning on the borders of Germany and Austria. With a quick pit stop for breakfast we then got back onto the Autobahn to Austria. The landscape grew tall as the mountains climbed, we passed little rivers and farmers’ fields to arrive at the Hotel Sonnegg at 2pm on Saturday afternoon, a bum-numbing journey. With a swift unpack we walked to the ski and boot hire shop down the hill and got kitted out. We then chilled out in our rooms at the hotel for the evening.
