The ski runs are long and wide and have some great tree lined routes. The nursery slopes are situated close to the village offering superb gentle and wide pistes, to aid quick progress to all that is on offer here. Intermediate skiers and boarders have some incredible red runs giving endless opportunities for improvement before progressing to the more difficult pistes. Bad Kleinkirchheim and St Oswald each have their own beginner’s area, BKK’s beginner skiing is close to the village and are excellent for the early lessons.

Green runs Blue runs Red runs Black runs Nassfeld is a ski area comprising several villages in southern Austria close to the Italian border. Our accommodation is based at Tropolach where there is access to a large and much under rated ski area, together with Feistritz. The villages are quite small but have a few shops and bars and are a safe environment for groups. Despite being Austria’s sunniest resort (with about 15 per cent more sunshine over the winter than the Tirolean resorts) Nassfeld also claims to be one of the snowiest. The main nursery slopes are at Tressdorferalm, at 1,590-metres, which is next to the second station of the Millennium Express which means beginners can be assured of good snow and sun. There are two beginners’ lifts here too for easy progression. Nassfeld is an intermediates’ resort par excellence. It is dripping with red runs where intermediates can improve themselves without being terrified. There is a choice of red runs from virtually every lift. For advanced skiers there is variety and good mileage to test their skills.

The ski area is compact and offers a selection of wide, open blue runs with good progression on to reds for the intermediates. Some technical reds, blacks and of piste skiing provide plenty of challenges for more experienced skiers and snowboarders. The latter is highly rated in this resort. The construction of a new lift has increased the ski area by 40% and will only enhance the excellent school skiing to be found already. The ski area of Mallnitz is 19kms away and included on the same lift pass.

Zugspitz Arena Excellent school skiing on the Austria-Germany border

The Zugspitz Arena comprises several villages in the Loisach Valley, with Ehrwald, Biberwier and Lermoos being the most important. The scenery is spectacular, with the towering Zugspitz overlooking the ski areas; the valley is spectacularly beautiful. The various villages are pretty, traditional and typically Tirolean. The skiing is ideal for groups that have predominantly beginners and early intermediate skiers and is testament to the notion that you don’t necessarily need to ski big, famous ski areas on huge mountains. Lermoos is the largest of the ski areas, although they are all accessible on the local bus system and the lift pass covers them all. The skiing is on wide, open pistes where confidence levels will quickly rise and students will aspire for more, namely the progressive red runs that develop skills but do not overawe. Aaccommodation for this resort is located in Reutte, which is 14kms from the ski area.

The village is very old and developed from a farming settlement on the col du Montgenevre where it was also the only route between France and Italy for many years, and remains so today but for very different traffic. Away from the main road there is a lovely old village to explore which retains its character since the main road bypasses the village centre. Overall, Montgenèvre is a good budget venue by French standards. It offers no frills, but great snow and a variety of skiing for all abilities. Found two kilometres from the Italian border, Montgenèvre is the one French direct link into the massive Milky Way network, with its hundreds of kilometres of pistes. At 1860m, this small resort has a very good snow record, ski-to-your-door accessibility and cheap and cheerful accommodation and restaurants.

You don’t get high prices and the village offers plenty to do. Andalo is a connoisseur’s ski resort and good skiers really rate it. It’s better than the comparatively modest mileage would suggest. Everyone who skis here, whatever their standard comes back with rave reports. We have no hesitation in recommending it to any school group. There are miles of informally pisted skiing through the trees and some fabulous off-piste too. The runs have great variety and the lift company groom them to corduroy perfection. Investment is continuous with an uplift that is first class; modern, swift and well organised, with high-speed chairs predominating. Andalo has something for everyone!

will not be liable include, but are not limited to, avalanches, floods, snowfall beyond the capacity of the authorities to clear promptly, fire, civil commotion and terrorism. In particular, the Alps experience very severe weather conditions from time to time which may delay or prevent your trip and we do not accept liability where this could not have been avoided by any reasonable efforts on the part of the company or its suppliers. c) Please note that tobogganing, polybagging and bumboarding etc is inherently dangerous and should not be undertaken by school party members, and is at the group leader’s discretion. d) In respect of claims arising from travel by road rail or sea our liability (including liability for death injury or illness) will be limited in accordance with the relevant international convention so that we will have no greater liability than the carrier concerned.

Tour details All tour details are prepared with great care. If there are any changes subsequent to printing we will advise you of them. We cannot accept responsibility for the effects of weather conditions (roads, access, avalanches or land falls, pistes, ice rinks), maintenance of ski lifts and other installations, festivals, holidays, traffic conditions etc. The operation of ski lifts and ice rinks is often restricted in low season periods and no refunds in respect of this can be made. If building work takes place which may have a detrimental effect on you holiday we will advise you as soon as we are made aware of it.

All are considered to be appropriate for school groups. All holiday centres have appropriate accreditation for the activities and services they offer. b) Where applicable hotels may make a charge for the use of advertised facilities eg swimming pools, sauna, solarium etc. All hotels reserve the right to remove televisions and telephones from the student’s rooms.

c) Towels are not always provided and soap rarely is. Groups should make their own arrangements for this. d) Irrespective of the number of rooms indicated in each description, students may be accommodated in rooms up to 6 persons and exceptionally at holiday centre in rooms for 8. In some cases private facilities may be adjacent to the room rather than en-suite. Bunk beds, divans, couch beds, and pull-down beds may be used; in apartment accommodation there may occasionally be a double bed. Single rooms are not readily available. Free places are granted on the use of a double, twin or multi-bedded rooms. If a single room is required or necessary for whatever reason, an additional charge of £70 will be made in respect of persons travelling on free places. Twin and/or double rooms for staff are usually subject to confirmation at the time when requested as part of the final party details. If unavailable you will be notified as soon as we are aware. e) Rooms must be vacated after breakfast on the final day. If, at its own discretion, the hotel is able to provide rooms until departure it will. If not rooms cannot be retained until departure, arrangements will be made for showering/changing facilities as may be available. f) Rooming allocation is entirely at the discretion of the accommodation booked. We do not undertake to accommodate boys and girls on separate floors. Rooming lists may be available direct from the accommodation within 1-2 weeks departure. g) Breakfast: usually a continental buffet – rolls, jam, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. In addition there may be cheeses, ham, eggs. This meal is likely to vary from resort to resort. Lunch: a packed lunch for the mountain which typically includes a filled roll, fruit, drink and possibly yoghurt. Dinner: 3 courses. h) We will advise your accommodation of any dietary needs that you may have. In the case of needs related to a medical condition or illness every effort will be made to comply. However, as there is frequent inclusion of bread, fruit, salad and vegetables, it may not always be the case that special vegetarian menus will be provided.

Itineraries and coaches a) We will advise you of approximate departure and channel crossing times but will not be in a position to finally convey this information until it is confirmed by the channel operator concerned. We will however provide this information no later than when final travelling instructions are sent out approximately 10 -14 days before departure. b) It should be remembered that at peak travelling times there is considerable pressure on limited travelling capacity. We will attempt to meet each party’s travelling preferences in terms of ferry or shuttle timings but such arrangements must, for operational reasons, be entirely at our discretion. c) You have unrestricted use of you coach during your stay for travelling to the slope or for entertainment purposes during the stay, subject to EU regulations. d) Whilst, once a minimum of 40 persons have been paid for, a party normally enjoys exclusive use of a coach, any unoccupied seats remain at the disposal of the company to use for client or staff. Such a requirement, which applies equally to a small party, is unusual but we reserve this right in case of necessity. e) In the case of breakdown, the company undertakes to provide alternative transport at its own expense and, as necessary, for skiing. It should be noted, however that the company will not accept any responsibility for delayed arrival or missed skiing but will reimburse any reasonable expenses which would otherwise not have occurred; travel to ski resorts in winter inevitably involves the possibility of poor weather including freezing conditions, heavy traffic, delays and breakdowns. The company undertakes to do its best to look after you in the event of breakdown but it must be appreciated that replacement vehicles can be difficult to obtain at short notice wherever a breakdown occurs.

entirely at the discretion of the company. If you prefer to make your own arrangements other than the free transfer, these can be made for you locally at a supplement of ₏150 per coach per transfer. g) The departure from resort on the last day after skiing is calculated to comply with legal requirements (EU driver’s hours and rest periods). It may not be changed to an earlier time without specific agreement by the company.

Health requirements There are currently no special requirements for travel to France. However this should be checked by the party leaderbefore departure. Hospital treatment is provided free of charge at public hospitals as part of the EU reciprocal arrangements. Bills for chemists, ambulances and doctors must be paid for locally and reclaimed under the terms of your insurance policy on your return. To ease facilitation of any treatment required we recommend that each party member is in possession of an original E111.

Passports and visas All passengers require a full British passport. For juveniles under 18 there is the use of a collective passport. Obtaining the correct documentation is the responsibility of the party leader. Non-British citizens require a separate passport in any event and may require a visa. Please check with the embassies concerned.

Ages Juvenile prices are available to persons who are under 18 on the day of travel. A fixed adult supplement applies to all persons over this age not benefiting from a free place. Some lift pass companies impose a higher charge for juveniles aged 15-17. We will advise you of this at the time of quotation and add the amount to your invoice when final party information is known.

f) In circumstances where a local bus is provided free of charge by us on the last ski day to return a party from the slopes to their accommodation, the time and the pick-up point for the transfer is

Snow conditions

Ski equipment

The company cannot accept responsibility for snow and weather conditions which may affect skiing and ice skating etc. You are covered by piste closure insurance. The decision of your ski school on the suitability of snow conditions is final.

The party leader accepts the obligation of ensuring the party

Lift passes Virtually all lift pass companies require a list of pupils with their dates of birth in addition to a statement from the Head confirming that the group is a school party. The party leader undertakes to provide this information as prices are dependent on its availability. Certain lift companies require a photograph for all party members or adults only. It is the responsibility of the party leader to provide photographs on arrival in resort.

Ski and snowboarding instruction a) Instruction is booked, as far as is possible, according to the request made with the initial enquiry. Groups booked into 6 x 2 hours must expect to have lessons split equally in the morning and afternoon. In addition, ski instructors cannot accompany to other non-connected ski areas that may be included in the lift pass, as they would be unable to instruct subsequent groups in the main ski area. This may be avoided by booking the 6 x 4 hours option or full day. b) Lessons are provided at group prices based on one instructor to ten students. Persons travelling on free places do not count in determining the ratio of instructors to pupils. You may at your own discretion vary the size of the groups to take into account varying ski and snowboard standards. Extra instructors can be arranged at an extra charge.

Attends the ski and/or snowboard fitting at the hotel at the time given and/or any other reasonable time. Attends the ski shop for fitting if that is the arrangement in that resort. On the last day the party leader agrees to return and check in all equipment with the supplier at whichever location applies.

Entertainment We pre-book or pre-notify your entertainment requirements as may be possible/practical. We cannot accept responsibility for the availability or operation of any particular planned operation. We will not undertake to book or arrange tobogganing, polybagging or bumboarding; this is not a service that can be licensed or controlled and as it can be dangerous we are unable to provide it.

Safety and security The provider of every service include in your holiday (accommodation, coach companies, insurers, ferry and rail operators, ski schools, ski suppliers, lift companies) is licensed by the competent authorities of the country concerned. In respect of hotels, this covers fire regulations, hygiene and safety. Please note that we are unable to impose UK standards on suppliers any more than other European countries can impose their standards on the UK.

c) In order to comply with UK health and Safety recommendation it is a condition of the company accepting the booking that the party leader agrees that students will ski or snowboard only on marked pistes and patrolled slopes and be supervised at all times while skiing either by the party’s teachers who are competent skiers and/or snowboarders or by ski school instructors provided by a ski school contracted by the company.
