Falun, Sweden is both a local and international hub for skiing. We host the annual Swedish Ski Games, have hosted the Nordic World Ski Championships a number of times, and have even bid to host the Winter Olympics! With so much skiing happening around town, it’s such a surprise that IES Falun participated in Alla På Snö for the first time this Winter!
Alla På Snö is a wonderful event organized by the Swedish Ski Association (Svenska Skidförbundet). Each year, they invite students from Year 4 to participate in a fun day in the snow. It is an incredible opportunity for both the students and the leaders to connect through such a fun sport!
This year, students from Kristinegymnasiet acted as the station leaders for our Year 4 students. They lead five different stations, where students got to warm up in their skis, play tag, complete in obstacle courses, and learn how to do some slalom in their cross country skis. Of course going downhill was the most exciting part!
‘The leaders were really nice! They were really good at explaining what we would do at each station’ said a student in 4B. When we asked the students what their wishes were for next time, most were quick to request a longer day of skiing.
Our school is really looking forward to future years with Alla På Snö!
