Plentiful snowfall and sunny blue skies gave schools travelling in mid-December the perfect pre-Christmas present with winter wonderland conditions. From our Club hotels in France to New England's best resorts, school groups also enjoyed skiing over the New Year period. Read on to find out more.
Our Equity Club hotels were busy as usual, with groups arriving since 14th December. We also had groups enjoying traditional Austrian mountain village atmosphere in Zell am See and Obertauern.
Schools skied incredible conditions in famous French resorts like Tignes (pictured right), home to some of Europe’s highest slopes and the Grande Motte glacier, Les Deux Alpes, a longstanding school ski favourite, stretching beneath 4,000 metre peaks and La Plagne, one of Europe’s largest interlinked ski areas.
Italian favourites like Claviere, part of the enormous Milky Way ski circuit, the pine-fringed ski area and immaculately groomed pistes of Folgarida, and Sestriere, host for the 2006 Winter Olympics, gave groups a warm, friendly welcome in December.
Little Andorra in the Pyrenees gave a big welcome to schools to get our European ski programme well and truly underway.
Across the pond, school groups have been enjoying the famous, warm American welcome and excellent customer service that keeps our groups returning year after year.
Schools enjoyed the tree-lined trails in the double Winter Olympics venue of Whiteface/Lake Placid, situated in the stunning Adirondacks National Park in upstate New York.
The huge diversity of terrain in Killington (pictured right), the 'Beast of the East' and New England’s largest resort, set in beautiful Vermont, once again maintained it's fantastic snow record in December.
This excellent start to the ski season means we are all set up for a truly awesome 2019 and we look forward to welcoming more school groups in the coming months.
