Killington

Without a doubt Killington is our most requested USA ski resort destination. Perfect for all abilities and boasting the “longest season in the East” are just two of the many reasons why school groups keep coming back to this resort time after time.

A ski trip to Killington can also be combined with our ‘Slopes and the City’ package, where you can enjoy four days of skiing in the resort and benefit from a city stopover in New York City or Boston.

In addition, Killington offers a whole host of après ski activities to choose from including indoor rock-climbing, ice-skating, snow shoeing and snowmobiling, making a ski trip to the US even more memorable.

 

Andalo

The Italian resort of Andalo in the Trentino region boasts a rich Italian heritage with stunning views over Lake Garda. The resort reaches 1040m above sea level, with 60km of piste to take advantage of.

Furthermore, when staying in an Italian resort you can be guaranteed you’ll get excellent food. From delicious pizza, to traditional hot chocolate and filling pasta, you can rest assured knowing your students will never complain about being hungry after a day on the slopes!

After an action-packed day on the mountain, there are numerous après-ski activities to take part in including ice-staking, indoor swimming at the ACQUAIN centre and afternoon shopping in the Renaissance city of Trento.

Serre Chevalier

Excellent for all skiing abilities, Serre Chevalier is the fifth biggest ski resort in France, consisting of three traditional alpine villages and 250km of piste.

Serre Chevalier also offers a snow park, where more confident skiers and snowboarders can practice their tricks on three different freestyle courses.

For evening activities head to Europe’s highest Alpine town of Briancon, for an afternoon of shopping and exploring its medieval streets. At certain times of the week take part in the thrilling activity of night-time skiing or wind down at the local spa. In-house entertainment such as a quiz, film night or disco can also be arranged.

The stunning Austrian resort of Zell Am See is often rated highly by our school resorts due to its breathtaking location and spectacular skiing facilities, making it a great ski resort to visit all season long.

The skiing area is split across three mountains, offering 118km of piste across Zell am See and Kaprun with high quality snow cover, excellent piste grooming and snowmaking facilities.

The resort offers an abundance of après-ski activities – from the excitement of a major-league ice hockey match to exploring the traffic-free historic town, where students can go shopping and enjoy traditional Austrian food.

Vallnord

In recent years the Andorran resort of Vallnord has received investment and modernisation making it more popular for school groups. The resort offers exceptional high-altitude skiing, good snowmaking facilities, a peaceful village atmosphere and is lift-linked to the additional ski areas of Pal and Arinsal.

Whilst staying in Vallnord many of our school groups love to take advantage of the tax-free shops in Andorra la Vella, just a short drive away from the resort. Additional après-ski activities include bowling, ice-skating and in-house quizzes and discos which can be arranged with your Equity rep.
