Schwarzenegger Skis With Students

Actor-turned-politician ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER delighted 50 lucky students by turning up unannounced on a school ski trip - and taking to the slopes with them.
The California Governor visited a group of underprivileged kids involved in his After-School All-Stars organisation during their trip to the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area in the state last weekend (25Apr10).
The kids, from low-income families, were treated to two days of skiing and snowboarding lessons at the resort - and were stunned when Schwarzenegger turned up to chat about the importance of after-school programs.
The Terminator star posed for photos with the kids, before skiing down the mountain with the youngsters.
He told the pupils, "There are many, many people that have been there to help me along the way. Life is about everyone getting an equal chance and everyone helping each other. That's why it is our responsibility to do everything that we can, so that you can have the same joy."
Mammoth Mountain bosses, who donated the trip to the kids, also gave $25,000 (£17,000) to Schwarzenegger's foundation by handing over $5 (£3) for every lift ticket sold over the weekend.
Schwarzenegger helped found After-School All-Stars to give students a place to do homework and participate in sports to keep them from engaging in crime and drug use.
