71 Rotary youth exchange students spent a week from February 10 to 16, 2019 in the Tatras in Slovakia skiing and snowboarding. Even beginner skiers could pick up the skills easily.
The atmosphere was great mainly due to the weather which was perfect all week long. From beginners to advanced skiers and snowboarders, everyone could find a suitable slope. The third day of a sports week should always be a day off, so the students were taken to AquaCity in Poprad. In the evening we enjoyed some fun activities together and everyone was excited about the snowmen contest which was carried out.
This year was exceptional mainly due to the fact that all the students tried really hard and learned to ski and snowboard very well and NOBODY was hurt! The skiing and snowboarding competition in the end of the week was a great success!
