ALPE d’Huez, known as “L’ile au Soleil” (Island of the Sun) was the destination for this year’s ski trip by pupils from Oakhill College in Whalley.

A party of 23 Oakhill pupils and staff headed to the French slopes to take advantage of the variety of ski runs and doorstep skiing from the hotel.

All skiers made excellent progress and enjoyed a fantastic week with plenty of snow on well-groomed pistes. The resort also lived up to its name with a few days of excellent sunshine.

For après-ski the pupils enjoyed a dip in the outdoor pool, extreme sledging and karaoke.
