(Valloire, France- February 2011)
We are always keen to offer you the chance to ski in the big resorts but also give you the opportunity to try some quieter areas and new resorts. There are a lot of new resorts to ski this year and we think is something for everyone.
Check out our exciting new resorts that have been added to the Switzerland programme. Be sure to peruse the Swiss pages to see what we have an offer. Our resorts offer a unique blend of Swiss charm and a lively atmosphere combined with world class skiing that can compete with the world’s best resorts. Situated in the heart of the Alps, Switzerland is home to un spoilt charming villages and magnificent scenery. Most Swiss ski resorts have built up around mountain villages and offer a traditional atmosphere. The resorts provide great mountain restaurants, uncrowded slopes, modern lift systems and overwhelming views.
Italian ski resorts have a unique charm, magnificent scenery and great skiing. We are proud to present the new Italian resorts including Falcade and APrica to name but a few. Italy has rapidly developed as a ski destination over the years and can now offer a modern lift system, excellent snowmaking facilities and great runs. Combine great skiing, scenery and Italian cuisine in these great resorts. Sunny slopes, a vast choice of mountain restaurants and the friendliness of the locals is some of what makes Italy such a great ski destination. We are pleased to offer a variety of ski areas in Italy ranging from more purpose built resorts to typical Italian villages.
We are delighted to return to our SkiClass favourites Alpe d’Huez and Serre Chevalier amongst many others. France has some of the best terrain in the world as well as modern and efficient lift systems. For school groups wanting to experience traditional French villages, resorts such as Meribel and Porte de Soleil guarantee you a feel of the real France. For others the more popular, purpose built resorts such as La Plagne are more suitable, offering an extensive range of apartments and great services in resort.
Austria is the ultimate ski destination with its stunning scenery, charming villages and excellent skiing for all levels. The friendly guesthouses and traditional family run hotels makes it the perfect choice for school groups. As for skiing, resorts such as Saalbach, Kitzbühel and Oberlungau are well suited for the more advanced skier, whilst areas such as Axamer Lizum, Mühlbach and Wildschonau are perfect for beginners. Huge investments in modern snow making facilities and access to some of the world’s best glaciers, makes Austria a snow sure destination and a great choice for a school ski trip.
USA / Canada
We have many fantastic resorts to choose from both the East and West Coast of USA to the powder bowls of Canada. There are some fantastic options to split your week between two different areas and take in a great variety of skiing. As part of the unique experience of travelling to North America every group should take up the opportunity of making a city stop over an integral part of the trip. The cities available have a range of activities and sightseeing tours to choose from. Even if your group have done a city stopover before speak with your sales advisor for tips on making the next visit even better!
