Day 1 - Saturday 6th February 2016
The day has finally arrived. We arrived at Edge Lane for 7.30am and after a few tears we were off to Manchester.
We all checked in very easily and got through to the departure lounge where most of the children ate their own body weight in sandwiches. We then had the call and we headed off to our plane. The pilot then told us the news we were delayed because of the French air traffic controllers. 30 minutes later we were off. What seemed a short flight and after a rather bumpy landing which most of the children thought was great fun, we landed at Grenoble!!
Next was our transfer to Sherre Chevalier. What should of been a simple 1.45 minute transfer turned into a 4 hour hike into Italy as the tunnel we were using was damaged so everyone was redirected!!!!
After over 12 hours of travelling, countless games of scissor paper stone and answering 1000 times the answer to Are we nearly there yet? We arrived at the hotel Olympic! We went straight inside for some food then we had our ski fit and just before 12pm we got to bed!! What a day!!
