School Ski Trips to
Santa Caterina, Italy

With two distinct sides to the ski area, Santa Caterina offers good skiing for all abilities.
  • Skiing up to 2,880m
  • Unspoilt and compact centre
  • The chance for ‘ski away days’ in nearby resorts

The beginner’s area helps skiers progress, while the summit offers rolling red runs in an amazing landscape. Advanced skiers can also attempt the challenging black runs or the Deborah Compagnoni piste (named after the local skiing Olympian), which is floodlit at night for anyone who’s after some picturesque night skiing!

Santa Caterina itself is a beautiful alpine ski resort, with just a small centre and virtually no traffic. Everything is within easy walking distance and, despite its size, has a great selection of hotels, facilities and après ski options.

Groups in Santa Caterina will also have the chance to spend one or two ‘ski away days’ in Bormio and/or the Val di Dentro ski areas.

What Our Customers Say

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What about après events?

    We supply a basic après package to all groups, which includes ideas and materials to run a number of in-house après activities, such as quiz nights, games nights and bingo nights. However, we also offer an extensive list of additional après ski events in each resort, which can be included in your package for a small supplement if you wish. For more details, please see the information on the individual resort pages.

  • What about ski equipment?

    Skis, boots, poles and helmet hire are all included as standard. You’ll usually be issued and fitted with your equipment on the day of arrival.

  • Which ski schools do you use?

    We have close, established links with all the ski schools in the resorts we offer. In all instances, we can guarantee highly qualified, English-speaking ski instructors who will make sure each student gets the most out of their time on the slopes.

  • Is a Trip Courier included as standard?

    Yes, all of our ski groups have one Trip Courier designated to them to take care of all the logistics and ensure everything runs smoothly. Your courier may meet you in resort but it’s sometimes possible for them to travel to and from resort with your group.

  • What else should I be looking for in a resort?

    Choosing the right resort should be governed by two main criteria: the skiing and the resort facilities. If your group has younger children or a majority of beginner skiers, then a large ski area isn’t necessary. However, for advanced skiers, the opportunity to ski more pistes will be important.

    Younger groups will not need a wide-ranging après program and lots of events can be organised in or near the hotel, including those provided in the complimentary après ski pack. However, adult groups and groups with older children will want to organise some evenings out and for après ski events to be in abundance.
