Tailor-made school ski trips to
Canada

If you're looking for adventure, you've found it. In the rural retreat of Canada you'll have your pick of glades, chutes and powder bowls to explore, as well as exciting and varied runs to tackle with some of the most scenic views around.

If the Canadian Rockies are calling, head to Lake Louise for world-class skiing amongst the magnificent, rugged mountains of Banff National Park. The landscape is the stuff of dreams with ski slopes to match, as well as 4,200 acres of skiable terrain and 145 named runs, meaning skiers of all levels will be suitably challenged.

For those seeking some serious heights on their school ski trip to Canada, Mont Tremblant is home to one of the highest peaks in the Laurentian Mountains. As East Coast Canada's largest resort, you're never short of tree-lined runs, varied terrain and charming village vibes, with the vibrant city of Montreal just two hours away.

First-time skier? Head to Stoneham and find your feet on its four spectacular mountain faces and hit that fresh powder hard! Whilst Mont-Sainte-Anne is known for its legendary snowfall, offering a dedicated beginner area, backcountry zones and the highest vertical slope for night skiing.

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.
