When I came to Bristol I promised myself that I would go on a university ski trip before I graduate. Well, in October I realised that two years later I still hadn’t been on one, so I booked onto Alpe D’Huez 2015! With my dissertation deadline looming and exams on the way, do I regret taking the week off to escape to the slopes? Not. At. All.
I’d been skiing only four times before last week so I don’t consider myself an expert at all. I’d call myself ‘intermediate’ at a push. As long as you can get down the mountain it’s okay, right? But this trip was about so much more than skiing. Of course, it’s the reason we’re all there, but it was the most sociable week I have had of my entire three years in Bristol. Late nights, early mornings and a daily dose of aprés-ski, I was well and truly exhausted by the time I arrived home, but it felt like an entire year of uni rolled into one. If you’ve been skiing, you know what it’s all about. If you haven’t, nothing I can say can convey the feeling of gliding (or rolling) down a mountain! So I thought I’d save us all the time and just share a few of my photos of my incredible week instead.
