Following weeks of practice on the Chatham dry-ski slope and the Hemel Hempstead Snow Centre, Hayesbrook boys are almost packed and ready to depart for the Italian Alps!

Today began, believe it or not, as most others have. Getting ready for skiing and having our breakfasts. To be h...Read Full Story
Day 3I will admit, today was quite routine; we woke up, had breakfast (which once again was great) and collected our skiing/snowboarding equipment to head up the mountain.
