The sun was shining and the skiing was hot. We laughed all the way up the chair lifts teaching the instructors to speak more English. Emily B skied brilliantly and Livvy was smiling. Cristiano's group skied half a black run really well then all five groups went to play in the snow park over the boxes and ramps with only a few minor wipe-outs.
By lunch time it was 'molto caldo'. Poppy L got out her ipod on the balcony so the Year 10s, Miss Howarth and Mrs Ziriat could sing and dance for half an hour to the amazement of the locals; "dancing in the sunlight".
6.00 pm We were back on our skis for the Fiaccole/torchlight decent. We went up the blue chair lift with the ATC group and Moira school with all the instructors. The teachers and some students held the torches that Willie had lit for them. We all skied down in a very long snow plough snake which finished back at the hotel. We had no wipe-outs and managed to form a large circle at the bottom with all 150 people. We threw the torches into the middle of the circle to create a ring of fire before the instructors collected them up and put them out.
7.00 pm Dinner, shower, change into disco clothes... We walked down to Grizzly's which was many people's first nightclub experience. It was just open for the Equity groups where we danced the night away to top tunes and strobe lighting. We made friends with the students from the other groups. The night finished with YMCA and the Cha Cha Slide (teachers included).
A fantastic day was had by all.
