We are full of admiration for all you teachers who are putting in the extra effort to organise a school ski trip for your students, on top of everything else that you do. So to help you as much as we can, we have put together a few events that we think are relevant to anyone going on a school ski trip this winter. There might be no such thing as a free lunch, but there is such a thing as a free ski - we promise!
Fancy a free evening of skiing? We’re offering two free Ski Evenings on Thursday 26th October and Thursday 9th November at the Snozone in Milton Keynes. The evening starts at 19:00 and includes an hour of skiing and equipment hire.
We’ve got a load of free tickets to give away for the Ski and Snowboard Show in Battersea Park, London on Friday 26th October. Billed as London’s very own Alpine festival, this is a brilliant opportunity to try out new ski gear, watch some world-class ski athletes in action and sample some delicious Alpine food and drink. We’d love to see you there, so contact us now for your free ticket (worth £20).
If you’re organising a ski trip for the first time, or have a colleague who is, come to our event on Thursday 2nd November (from 17:00) at the Snozone in Milton Keynes. A chance to catch up with one of the team putting your ski trip together, we can answer any questions you might have, talk about new destinations for future ski trips or just enjoy a pre-season ski. One hour ski/snowboard lesson included.
These one-day courses run by an accredited Snowsport England instructor are a great way to gain the skills needed to run a ski trip. Get to know other ski trip leaders, learn the basics of taking students away skiing and leave with lots of vital information. We’re running two SCO courses this term: one at our offices in London on Wednesday 22nd November and one at the Snozone in Milton Keynes on Monday 27th November. We offer one free place to any leader on a ski trip booked with Club Europe and places are also open to teachers going with other tour operators.
OK, not strictly an event but look out for this handy go-to guide for all ski trip organisers, whether on your first or thirty-first school trip. Packed full of information and written after many years of hands-on experience, we think this guide will be an indispensable part of your ski kit. Watch this space for its publication date!
To find out more about any of the above events, call our Freephone number on 0800 496 4996 and ask to speak to Cath or Luke. Alternatively send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
