You might think that school ski trips are designed exclusively for secondary schools but younger children are often the perfect candidates. Their energy levels and (general) lack of fear mean that they will easily pick up skiing. Educationally, there are fewer timetable and exam pressures, making it a good age group to take away.

But if the thought of taking all that unharnessed energy abroad, never mind onto a ski slope, fills you with trepidation, fear not! Some of our resorts and accommodation are very well-suited to the needs of younger school ski trips, including the Weitenmoos in Austria.

Weitenmoos ski path

Cosy and secure

The Weitenmoos is located just outside the quiet village of Alpendorf. Although it sleeps 150 people in total, every group has its own corridor or floor with adjoining teachers’ rooms. There are two main dining areas that can easily be separated off so that your group can eat in peace.

Doorstep skiing

Intermediate skiers will love the secret path that leads off the main slope back to the Weitenmoos in the evening. A frequent ski bus service means that you can easily take your beginners to meet the ski school ten minutes away.

Buchau Lunch Hut

Keeping warm

A hot mountain lunch in a local Alpine restaurant provides children with a welcome chance to sit down in the warm, eat a filling meal and use the loo! The Snowspace ski area offers plenty of places for your group to sit and warm up at midday.

Energetic evenings

There is plenty to keep your group entertained and busy after dinner. Burn off energy playing table tennis, jumping on the trampolines or trying your skills on the climbing wall. Round off the week with a disco or campfire in your very own “Yeti Hut” in the grounds of the hotel.
