School Ski Trips to
Sestriere, Italy

Sestriere is the purpose-built brainchild of the Fiat owning Agnelli family, who chose the location due to its high altitude and dramatic mountain landscape which includes three skiable peaks.
  • Main Olympic ski resort of the 2006 Olympics
  • Part of the 400km Milky Way ski area
  • High altitude for great end of season skiing

The main benefit of a purpose-built resort is that everything is within easy reach; ski school, ski hire and the lifts are all within walking distance of the hotels. In addition, the resort sits at 2,035m, meaning that skiing starts from resort level all year round.

Being the location for the majority of the alpine ski races during the 2006 Olympics, the surrounding infrastructure is particularly good. Beginner skiers will progress quickly on the excellent nursery slopes, whilst experienced skiers can tackle the Olympic downhill or ski over to other Milky Way resorts.

What Our Customers Say


  • 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 Tour Manager included as standard?

    Yes, all of our ski groups have one Tour Manager designated to them to take care of all the logistics and ensure everything runs smoothly. Your Tour Manager 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.
