The Recipe for the Perfect Ski Trip

Last updated: Jan 30th, 2019

When taking a group of school children away on a ski trip, there are loads of important factors to consider. We asked teachers returning from ski trips what is most important to them when choosing a Ski Tour Operator.

1.      Attention to health and safety

You’re up on a mountain with 20+ kids in your care; it’s absolutely paramount that you have the right health and safety support so everyone stays happy and healthy. Teachers rated this as the most important factor to consider when choosing a tour operator and we feel the same. With ski-specific risk assessments and thorough Safety Management Packs, our team will ensure you have all the health and safety boxes ticked so that you can ski worry-free!

2.      Quality of Customer service

Organising a trip for a large group is a big deal and we want to give you the best possible planning experience. With support from our friendly team at the end of the phone before, during and after your trip, we provide our customers with the very best service and take the stress out of the planning. Following our last ski season, our groups gave us an average customer service rating of 4.8/5!

‘I felt that the organisation and support offered by the company was excellent. Every effort was made to create a trip that was as close to my requirements as possible and any problems that arose were dealt with efficiently and satisfactorily.’

Mr Jonathan Robb

3.      Value for money

Ski holidays can often be a tad pricey. However, with our extensive knowledge of ski locations and our good relationships with reputable hotels, we can ensure groups get excellent quality at the best possible price.

4.      Accreditations

It’s really important for a ski tour company to meet external standards of quality. We ensure we do through the following accreditations:

Other important things to consider

The quality of ski instruction

We want your group to come on leaps and bounds whilst they’re away with us. With good quality instruction, new starters can become confident skiers in just a few days. We’ll take your group members’ ability levels into account when recommending a ski resort for you, making sure that there is something for everyone.

‘The best bit about the trip was the amount of progress made by pupils. Going from complete novices to intermediates in the space of a matter of days was impressive and credit to the ski school.’

Mr Kit Williams


We will recommend good quality accommodation that’s perfect for youth groups. Whether your determining factors are budget, facilities or sole-occupancy, we will recommend the best options for your group. We will also recommend accommodation that is close to the ski lifts so that you can spend more time on the slopes and less time on buses!

‘A lovely hotel in a gorgeous French village. The walk to the lift was easy and it was a great location for the slopes.’

Ms Laura Smith

Après Ski

When skiing is done for the day, the après fun begins! With plenty of exciting activities to keep your group entertained after ski hours, we’ve got your après ski covered!

Ski Rep

You could be spending a lot of time with your Ski Rep so we ensure that you will be supported by helpful, friendly staff whilst out on the slopes!

‘Gemma was outstanding – she couldn’t have been more helpful. My job was made so much easier by her presence and she was good company too!’

Miss Carole Riley

The all-round experience!

When all of these boxes are ticked, you’ve got yourself the perfect ski trip!

‘A great time was had by all with outstanding conditions, wonderful accommodation, a wide range of après ski activities and an amazing ski rep.’

Mr Jonathan Shute

‘The extended ski days, the food, the apres ski. Rayburn provided us with the perfect ski trip package. ‘
