Contrary to popular belief, university ski trips aren’t just about drinking as much alcohol as humanely possible, getting your kit off as frequently as possible and generally making a humungous tit of yourself on a regular basis. They’re also about freestyle snowboarding (honest…) and by the looks of things, at least a few people had their priorities right at last year’s Varsity trip to Val Thorens, which brings a massive 3000+ strong contingent of Oxbridge students out to the Alps for a week of snow, sun and music.

Under the watchful eyes of Westbeach riders Matt Macwhirter and Jesse Smith, it looks like a rad time was had by all with rails, kickers and airbags all getting sessioned over the course of the week.

Check out the highlights video before going back to wishing that you too could get away with sitting around all day in your ‘jamas with a pot noodle and Jeremy Kyle…
