Why Choose Interski?
Interski is different – in the best way.
We've invested heavily in one valley - the beautiful and historic Aosta Valley in NW Italy - where we have over 34 years' experience in delivering the best school and college ski packages available. We're not reliant on third parties and we can promise you the most supportive and well organised experience in the Alps.
Take a look at our 'at a glance' comparison table to see just what makes a school ski trip with Interski so much better and less stressful.
|Most Other Packages||With Interski||The Details|
|Transport from the UK||Fairly standard! However, some providers may charge a regional travel supplement if you are based in the North of the UK or Scotland, or insist on a minimum group size in order to confirm your chosen resort and hotel – which can change if you don't hit the target group size. Not with Interski. Finally, it's worth checking the journey times – Our resorts in the Aosta Valley are amongst the shortest overland journeys to the Alps, at just 10-11 hours from Calais.|
|Hotel Accommodation||Many providers now use hotels for school & college groups with private facilities but be wary of any hostel or dormitory type accommodation.|
|6 Day Lift Pass||Essential kit - don't take a package without it.|
|Tuition Provided By Operator's Own Instructors||Interski run the biggest and best British ski school in the Alps – exclusively for the tuition of our clients. Fewer language barriers, no competing with local tourists for your ski school's affection, and greater control and flexibility for your groups.|
|Hot Snack Lunches on the Mountain||Occasionally||Apart from breakfast and dinner at your hotel, our voucher system means that students will get a hot snack lunch every day in one of the resort mountain restaurants, with minimal stress. Beware packed lunches or wasted time on the slopes having to ski back to the hotel!|
|Breakfast en-route in Both Directions||Students enjoy a continental breakfast on the way to resort and a full cooked breakfast on the ferry, during your return. A real money saver!|
|Full Après-ski Programme||Normally an Optional Extra||What else are you going to do in the evening? Interski offer an exciting and varied après-ski programme as standard. With many providers it's an ‘optional' extra.|
|Winter Sports Insurance||With insurance, it's important that it covers any student who has to withdraw from the trip prior to departure for medical reasons etc. – not just for the trip itself.|
|Free Places for Supervisory Staff||With Interski, you'll benefit from a free place ratio as high as 1 place for every 7 students, depending on your package.|
|Full ABTA and ATOL Bonding||Financial security. Quite simply, we recommend that you don't travel with any provider who doesn't hold these.|
|In-house Equipment Hire and Locker System||We stock a huge range of skis in all sizes from Atomic – one of the leading ski manufacturers. With our own ski technicians, we are able to directly control the quality of equipment received by students and adjust or swap items as appropriate.|
|Resort Rescue Service||Unique to Interski. A dedicated member of staff who will be first on the scene if a student requires medical attention of any kind – not necessarily ski related – who can then translate as well as coordinating medical attention, transport and insurance.|
|45+ Strong Resort Team||You won't find better or greater support anywhere else. Where most providers will provide one ‘rep' in resort, you might find they're the only person available to help ensure things go smoothly. With Interski, you'll have a dedicated group coordinator who stays with you in your hotel but behind them is a large, highly visible and extremely helpful bunch of people performing different rôles, including management duties, to make sure your trip with us is flawless.|
|In-resort Transport||Aside from the coach you travel out on (or if you travel by air!), you may find a large fleet of cars, vans and minibuses comes in very handy. It certainly beats taxis.|
|No Minimum Group Size||Many providers require you to have a certain number of students before they can guarantee your price, hotel and resort – falling short of this number can often mean going back to parents to explain there's been a change or the trip has been cancelled altogether. With Interski, the price never changes and there are no supplements for over 18s. Just one simple price and you can be confident that you'll be travelling to the hotel you expected, whatever happens to your group size.|
|Resort Team, Instructors and Local Medical Network Linked By Radio||We have an excellent communication network in place in our resorts, with our resort team and instructors linked to the local medical network as well.|
|In-resort Ski Wear Rental||Only Interski runs and provides our own in-resort ski wear rental service - delivered to your hotel and collected on departure day. We can provide high quality jacket and salopettes for just £30 for the week. There's also a choice of convenient and cost effective accessory packs, making it one of the easiest, cheapest and most convenient ways for parents to budget and arrange the clothing students require.|
|All The Above Included In The Price *||We're the only Ski Tour Operator who includes all of the above in our price - no hidden extras, no surcharges and no nasty surprises!|
