(Newser) – Apparently students at America's Ivies aren't the only silver-spoon kids who get into trouble. Now a group of Cambridge and Oxford students are in hot water for stripping down on the slopes during a traditional high-profile ski outing. The raunchy behavior has hit the media, and an angry sponsor is vowing never again to have anything to do with the frozen delights of the "Varsity Trip to the Alps," reports the Telegraph. A series of photos caught the mainly female students in undies and bras on the slopes of the Val Thorens resort in France. In one shot, a happy male student warms the bare breasts of a female student.

The hijinks unfolded as the students arranged wacky "Varsity Rally" competitions, with victors winning a future all-expense-paid ski trip from upscale travel organizer Scott Dunn. Some posed naked while others smeared them with pasta sauce and chocolate. One student clutched an egg between his buttocks as it was smashed with a wine bottle—then he ate it. "I sold my dignity for a free holiday," groused one student. Scott Dunn issued an angry statement saying it "in no way endorses any of the inappropriate behavior," and said it will have "no future involvement in the Varsity Trip and Valley Rally." The trip grows larger every year and involved some 2,500 students this time. (Click for another school scandal.)
