What's Included in a School Ski Trip?

What's Included in a School Ski Trip?

Operating tailor-made tours since 1965, we know no two groups are the same, which is exactly why all of our tours are completely tailor-made.

We invest as much time as possible to fully understand your requirements, fine-tune your itinerary and create a tailor-made package that’s perfect for you.

To provide you with a good starting point, each Rayburn Ski package includes a number of items as standard. Whilst these inclusions will deliver an incredible ski trip on their own, we’re dedicated to providing completely tailored ski packages.

You’ll find a number of ideas on how we can do this on our How to Tailor Your School Ski Trip Inclusions page or, if you have specific ideas in mind, contact one of our Ski Trip Consultants who will be happy to talk through your ideas.
