Why Choose Interski?
Interski is different – in the best way.
Our origins have seen us invested heavily in one place - the beautiful and historic Aosta Valley in NW Italy - where we have over 40 years' experience in delivering the best school and college ski packages available. However, more recently we've been broadening our horizons to offer more ski areas and greater choice - Andorra and Spain. We have strict critera that we follow before choosing to offer anything to our schools, so you can rest assured that every resort and hotel in our portfolio is perfect for school ski trips.
We've taken the same approach that has served us so well in the Aosta Valley and applied it across the board. We make sure that the hotels, ski hires, ski schools and everything else that makes up your ski trip are the best of the best.
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. If you're travelling to Andorra or Spain it's a little further, but still within a comfortable drive.|
|Hotel Accommodation||Many providers now use hotels for school & college groups with private facilities but be wary of any hostel or dormitory type accommodation.|
|5 Day Lift Pass||Essential kit - don't take a package without it.|
|Tuition Provided By The Best Local Ski Schools||We've formed strong partnerships with local ski schools in resorts to ensure the quality of tuition is first class. The strength of our relationships means that we get the best instructors and the best service - always!|
|Hot Snack Lunches on the Mountain||Occasionally||Apart from breakfast and dinner at your hotel, our voucher system in the Aosta Valley 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 full paying students, depending on your package.|
|ABTA membership, ATOL & Full Financial Protection||Financial security. Quite simply, we recommend that you don't travel with any provider who doesn't offr this.|
|In-house Equipment Hire and Locker System||In Pila we stock a huge range of skis in all sizes from Atomic – one of the leading ski manufacturers. With our own ski technicians, we're able to directly control the quality of equipment received by students and adjust or swap items as appropriate. In other resorts we use carefully selected facilities that provide great service, and great equipment.|
|Resort Team||You won't find better or greater support anywhere else. With Interski, you'll have a dedicated, highly visible and extremely helpful team 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 Clothing Rental||Only Interski runs and provides our own in-resort ski clothing rental service - delivered to your hotel and collected on departure day (Italy only). We can provide high quality jacket and salopettes for just £45 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. If you're not travelling to one of our Italian resorts, we can still provide this service but rental suits will be delivered to your school before you depart and collected again when you return back to the UK.|
|All The Above Included In The Price *||We include all of the above in our price - no hidden extras and no unexpected supplements!|

- Interski Plus! Travel for two consecutive years and receive a host of benefits
