It is without hesitation that I report that this year we enjoyed the most successful Canada Cup of the six years to date. Twenty-nine boys and four staff all thoroughly enjoyed a busy, active and entirely positive nine nights/ten days. This was not for a single reason, rather a culmination of elements. We enjoyed superb conditions. The excursions/activities outside of skiing were hugely successful, especially ‘The Dulwich College Curling Championships’. We skied the entire training camp and two days of racing without injury. All boy’s skiing progressed dramatically culminating in us enjoying huge depth in ability and very pleasing levels of silverware.
