Happy Skiing at Sunny Sugarloaf-USA

On Friday, February 10, elementary students of l'Ecole Française du Maine went to Sugarloaf, USA for a day of Alpine skiing. While beginning skiers participated in "Perfect Turn" classes with French speaking Sugarloaf ski instructors, our experienced skiers explored the mountain in small groups with teachers and parent ski coaches.  The weather was simply amazing and three of our students learned to ski that day!  All are anxious to get back to the mountain next month!

A special thank you to our parent ski coaches who made this outing possible.
Keeping up on the Black Diamonds with some of 
our  "Champions" was not an easy task !
