Ski Trip 2018

Cost Reduction of Ski Trip - Easter 2018

We are delighted that we have been able to significantly reduce the cost of our ski trip to the renowned resort of St Michael in Austria.  The total trip cost (previously over £800), is now £500 per person, which is extremely competitive and will include the following:

  • Executive return coach travel to Austria from the college;
  • Hotel accommodation;
  • Full board meals;
  • 6 day lift pass;
  • 6 days skiing in resort, including ski, boot and helmet hire;
  • 24 hours of instruction (4 hours per day);
  • Comprehensive insurance;
  • In-house evening entertainment package.

The trip offers our students a once in a lifetime opportunity to develop skiing skills and explore other cultures.  It will take place during the Easter Holidays in 2018, departing on Friday 30 March and returning on Saturday 7 April. We will be staying at Hotel Urbanhof which is located close to the slopes and local village. 

In order to secure a place on this trip, you will need to pay deposit of £85 via Parent Pay by 5 September 2017.  Places on the trip are limited and, given the success of previous similar trips, are likely to fill up quickly; the trip will disappear from the Parent Pay system as soon as the places are filled.  Please note that deposits are non-refundable, unless the trip is cancelled and the rest of the payments will also need to be made via Parent Pay, in installments if you wish, with the final payment required on or before 1 February 2018.  

We will arrange a meeting at a later date for parents and students going on the trip, to share more information and answer any questions you may have.  A representative of the ski company will be available at the meeting.  In the meantime, if you have any queries about the trip please don’t hesitate to contact Mr Moore via email: nmoore@thespirescollege.com
