Another Great Easter on the Slopes!

Easter came early this year, which was great news for skiers! Over 2,400 of you took to the slopes with us. You travelled to 23 resorts in Europe and North America and seemed to love it, with 97% of you telling us you were satisfied with your trip!

After a slow start to the season, conditions were great this Easter, with plenty of snow. Here’s some of our favourite snaps sent in by you:

We’ve loved following your trips on Twitter. It’s brilliant to see so many young people enjoying the mountains. Whether your students were complete beginners or experienced skiers and snowboarders, it looked like they had a great time! Here are some of our top tweets:

Our rep was incredible. She was able to organise everything we needed and constantly went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay in Tonale. It is a lovely resort to ski in and has plenty of terrain to challenge a wide range of skiers.North Bridge House Preparatory School, Tonale, March 2016

Truly an all-in-one package. Very good set-up for school parties. Smoothest ski-fit we’ve ever had. Ski area great for all abilities. You even get après-ski cake and hot chocolate!The Maelor School, La Plagne, March 2016

The destination for a prep school is perfect. The ski school is amazing and there are enough runs for all abilities. There is always something to do in the evening so the children will never be bored.Forest School, Tonale, March 2016

This was an excellent trip combining San Francisco and all it has to offer with a ski trip. Our girls had a great time. Mammoth as a ski resort is excellent: big enough to keep the skiers happy bit everything coming back to one place. The ski fit was excellent. They had all the equipment ready for us with name labels on so we did not have the problem of girls taking the wrong equipment – which was great. The Mammoth Mountain Hotel is an excellent place to stay – the girls thought they had died and gone to heaven as they walked in through the doors. The skiing in the USA is excellent as you do not have to waste lesson time in queues for the lifts and you quite often have the slopes to yourselves. I would definitely recommend Mammoth as a ski resort. We will definitely be going again in the future. All-in-all a wonderful trip.Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, Mammoth, April 2016

Finally, you may remember that we filmed some of you during your February half term ski trips. Well, in case you missed it, we recently launched our new videos, designed to give those of you that haven’t yet travelled with us a taste of what a Halsbury school ski trip is like.

If you were involved in the filming, please take a look and see how many of your students you can spot! And if you’re new to us, we hope these videos give you a better idea of how we can help you create a memorable school ski trip for your students.

This season has been truly epic and we’d like to take a moment to thank you for choosing us to arrange your school ski trip. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait for next season!

If you need any information or advice on your next school ski trip, or just want to chat to us about your options, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
