School Ski Trip | School Skiing Trip In-Resort Services
Whilst your school is in resort the 321ski team will look after your party and aim to tackle any problems as swiftly and efficiently as possible. Although the 321ski reps generally won't be available during your time on the pistes, they will be on hand outside the skiing sessions. It is important you understand what is involved in SkiEssentials - 321ski's bespoke services.
Upon arrival your rep will meet and greet you, show you to your accommodation and arrange a short meeting. Ski fitting, fire drills, health and safety and local resort information will be covered.
As a graduate of the 321ski Representative Course, your ski rep will be available to you outside your ski times. Should any issues not be subsequently resolved to your satisfaction senior management will be at your disposal.
Wherever possible during the week there will be a continuing focus on enrichment and outside of the classroom learning. Our evening entertainment programme and level of instruction reflect this.
Your ski representative will help you as Party Leader deliver the evening entertainment package. Although schools often arrive with experienced Party Leaders the 321ski evening entertainments package includes karaoke, treasure hunts, fancy dress, Bingo night, ice skating, tobogganing, swimming, quiz night, last night disco, presentation evening and film night. Your exact package wil be decided prior to departure.
Please note that some activities carry supplements (for which full payment is due prior to departure) and not all of the above are available in all of our resorts.
We know some schools like to lead their own entertainment (particularly for KS4 and KS5) and that's fine - please advise us at the point of booking.
Ski Hire and Instruction
321ski uses good quality ski equipment. Where the ski hire is sourced at a local hire shop you can be sure that great care is being taken to ensure our groups are being well looked after. This starts with us asking you for your equipment sizing list soon afer booking. The same is true for the ski lessons - we only use schools that consistently deliver excellent, English speaking instruction. We at 321ski are proud of our relationship with these suppliers.
An extra pair of adult hands could make all the difference on the trip. However please make all accompanying adults aware that it is a school trip and as Party Leader you have absolute authority. As you know, standards of accommodation may well be different to a parent's family holiday.
Should the ratio of accompanying adults and pupils exceed 1:8 321ski will need to review the package cost. This is to ensure that we continue to offer great value for the pupils, and to avoid friction with our suppliers.
Within your trip folder it is important to bring with you all transport and accommodation details. Please also take particular care to bring a copy of any special requests that may have been agreed.
