Ski trips with Equity
The Complete School Ski Experience for developing young people
Cruise through the French Alps, take on the glittering glaciers of Austria or carve into the champagne powder in North America - Equity brings world-class resorts, hand-picked hotels and expert delivery together, giving you the complete school ski experience. Taking your students on a life-changing trip will be one of the most memorable experiences of their school years.
For over 83 years we’ve proudly worked with teachers to develop the complete school travel experience – not only the logistics of hassle-free travel and perfect accommodation for groups but also an experience that will encourage your groups’ personal development.
We will work closely with you to design the perfect school skiing experience, ensuring all your expectations and requirements are met. Many of our party leaders tell us that the personal service they receive is the main reason they book with us, so whatever your preferred destination, Equity will plan an exciting school ski trip around you and your students.
The combination of challenge, excitement and fun on a ski trip supports their personal growth. From building independence and confidence to developing resilience and teamwork, the skills gained on a ski trip are ‘skills for life’. But don’t take our word for it, here’s what one of Party Leaders has said about their Equity ski trip from last season.
Throughout the week, students took responsibility for themselves, showed respect and built positive relationships. They showed they could work with others, meet deadlines and expectations as well as use their initiative when asked, for example, to sort each room to ensure the door was locked and the key placed at reception. Through the skiing, they recognised the benefits of a healthy and active life and for beginners; they displayed fortitude and resilience in tackling a sport that is physically demanding and mentally challenging. Our senior pupils had opportunities to be a role model for the junior pupils and through their own assessment; they were able to recognise theirs and other strengths. All in all, this was the best ski trip I have been on and all pupils have learnt so much about themselves and others.
