Ed, one of our final year students, tells us more about the Snow Business Society and their annual ski trip to Val Thorens.
Welcome to Snow Business. We were born out of the need for snow sports in everyone’s lives. If you have ever spent time on the piste, you would understand this burning desire, and if you have not, then I highly recommend you getting out there and experiencing it. This is the foundation and mantra that Snow Business was built on - to give the opportunity to all Pearson College members to discover their inner mountain maestro.
The initial interest for the society, especially from total newbies, really left there no choice but to give the people what they wanted and so Snow Business was born. In our first year we have built a society of likeminded and passionate individuals who are devoted to maximising the accessibility of snow sports to all. For those that have been pulling 360s since they were knee high to those that could not tell their gondola from their chairlift, we have got you covered.
The first season of the society is being capped off by the inaugural tour, Pearson College London's first overseas, to Val Thorens in Easter 2014. Striking a perfect balance between quality of skiing for all abilities and après, it presented itself as the prime destination to kick off the Snow Business international journey. As Founder and 2013/2014 President, I can honestly say that it has been a blast to be at the helm of the society and I know it will be taken to the next level when I depart. After all, there is no business like Snow Business!
