Normally coaches depart on Saturday to catch an evening ferry from Dover to Calais. Breakfast (included in the cost) will be provided at a French motorway service station after a smooth, overnight journey.
You'll arrive in resort Sunday lunchtime where a snack lunch (again included in the cost of your course) will be available. The return journey normally takes place the following Saturday evening, after your sixth day's skiing, a shower and evening meal. 5 day packages depart for UK on the Friday evening.
Again the journey is overnight and students will awake, refreshed, for the early morning Sunday ferry, to enjoy a hot breakfast on board, again with the compliments of Interski.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Is your school/college friendly to the environment? Do you always travel by coach or do you jet off to far flung North American resorts? Help to reduce your school's carbon footprint by choosing coach travel to a fabulous European resort.
The carbon costs of coach services to Europe are up to six times lower than the same journey by aircraft, according to international operator, Eurolines. A journey to Paris by coach will produce 10.6 kilos of carbon per passenger journey, compared to 52 kilos by air. A trip to Vienna, just 22 kilos by coach, compared to 190.9 kilos when flying.
On average, research by the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Management reveals the carbon footprint for coach travel is 5.58 times lower than the cost of flying. Eurolines, part of the National Express, had six of its routes assessed using the actual fuel consumed and average number of passengers carried in 2006. The figures also accounted for the carbon costs of ferry crossings for each journey.
Managing Director, John Gilbert, said "This is confirmation that travel by coach is really low carbon travel to Europe. Not only are we consistently the lowest cost option, but have a low environmental cost too".
"The implication of the independent analysis is that the more people travel by coach to Europe, the lower each passenger's carbon footprint will be. Simply carrying more passengers on each of our coaches will reduce the carbon footprint of every single passenger we carry. So, for example, a full coach to Paris with 61 passengers on board means each passenger has a carbon footprint 5.9 times lower than the equivalent cost of a journey by air".
Gilbert added "This is a significant issue for our young travellers, in particular, who are the first generation who will live all their adult lives in a climate-changed world. Destinations like the Alps are easily made by coach. We believe more people will start to take the carbon costs of such journeys into account when planning a trip".
