60 staff, children, and parents from St. Stephen's Junior visited Macugnaga in Italy from the 28th January to the 2nd February 2018 on the annual St. Stephen's Junior ski trip. Prior to our arrival snowfall had been heavier than on previous trips and provided for excellent skiing conditions throughout the week, with clear, calm, sunny days and only a little snow creeping in on Thursday the 1st February.
Arriving at the hotel in Pecetto village early Sunday afternoon, children spent the following week skiing, ice-skating, visiting an old mine in the nearby village of Staffa, followed by an exhilirating ride up a cable car to the mountain top where spectacular views stunned all into silence. There was little cloud cover up the mountain this year, which presented with even more dreamlike views than before. The group arrived back in Canterbury at around 8pm on Friday the 2nd February. What an adventure!
