What will students see and do?

For more than 30 years, Max Ski has been organising school ski trips to Italy. In recent years, it has added locations in Canada and the United States.

Students spend their days on the snowy mountain peaks, picking up new skills. In the evenings they’ll engage in fun organised activities. All trips can be tailored to your needs.

Italian resorts represent great value for school groups, and the locations chosen by Max Ski have been specifically chosen because they are ideal for school trips. Locations in Italy include:

– Folgarida
– Livigno
– Andalo
– Folgaria/Alpe Cimbra
– Ponte Di Legno
– Pampeago

Locations in Canada include Banff Lake Louise, Jasper Marmot Basin and Mont Tremblant. In the US, trips are taken to Sunday River. Max Ski is working to add more resorts in both locations.

Max Ski school trip packages include all the equipment needed for skiing, hot lunches each day and evening entertainment. These overseas residentials include accommodation at exclusive quality hotels and a range of slopes designed for all skiing levels. Students receive a six-day ski pass and four hours of ski tuition each day.

Canada trips involve a nine-hour flight from London, then a coach journey to the resort. You’ll stop off in Calgary or Edmonton on the way. US trips include visits to Boston or New York City.

School groups have access to a dedicated trip manager who is available before, during and after the trip, and an English-speaking Max Ski rep on hand while staying at the resort.

Evening activities run by the Max Ski team include karaoke, bowling, ice skating, speed quizzing and more.
