What was your main aim/objective for this trip?

I wanted the boys to make progress with this skiing and for them to create new and long-lasting memories and experiences throughout the whole week.

Why did you choose this destination?

We chose Passo Tonale because of the reliable snow conditions on the glacier and because we’d seen lots of good reviews.

Can you briefly describe how your group progressed in terms of their skiing during this trip?

The boys made lots of progress throughout the week. The good relationships that they formed with their ski instructors really helped with this.

Did your group take part in any après-ski activities?

Yes, they took part in several activities. They had a night skiing session, which I recommend being arranged for the end of the week if you have any beginners in your group. And they enjoyed a pizza night, which is another great option for the end of the trip. They also had a go at bumboarding, which was good fun and a cheap option for the evening to tire the students out!

What will be your lasting memories of this trip?

The amount of progress that the boys made throughout the whole trip.

Why did you choose Halsbury for your school ski trip?

We had used Halsbury previously. They also had good feedback and reviews from other groups who had travelled with them.

How would you describe the experience of working with Halsbury on this trip?

Our rep, Jon Doel, was fantastic and helped make the trip a real success. He was thoroughly helpful with the GCSE boys, sorting fantastic footage for them to use for the NEA component. He was also very pro-active with sorting night activities.

Would you recommend Halsbury to your friends and colleagues?

Yes. As I mentioned, our ski rep made it even easier to ensure that the trip was a success – he’s a real asset to your company.
