Equipment Hire

We all know picking up our hire gear in resort after the coach journey can often be a faff with long waits as everyone is fitted for their gear.  We also understand that for beginners in particular, getting yourself kitted out and ready for the slopes can be incredibly expensive.  However this really needn’t be the case for either.

We have two main aims, to open up snow sports to the masses and for you to have the best time. This is why we have our official equipment and hire specialist partner. Cue the PreFitted Service. It will give you a HUGE advantage over everyone else in resort that isn’t travelling with us. Why? Well in short it’s a simple, professionally delivered service that means you are fitted here in the UK by English boot fitters. Normally this takes place on your campus or a location the organisers for your group have chosen. That means when you arrive in resort all you do is collect your pre-prepared kit! So much faster!

PreFitted was so easy in resort. I literally just picked up my kit and I was good to go!

We’d happily argue it’s never too late to take on the sport we love but there are definitely two prime windows of opportunity to maximize your learning! The first are those fearless years as a child where you laugh danger in the face and seem endlessly capable of bouncing off things unscathed. They were the glory days! No worries though, university is the next best time!

Heading to the mountains for the first time is for most a pretty daunting prospect but with approximately 35% of our trippers doing it, student ski trips are the ideal time to take the plunge and this is where our Wasteland Ski Beginner Packages come in.  We’ve packaged together your kit and your lessons for a great price that means you really don’t need to break the bank to get on the slopes! That combined with being surrounded by your friends and peers makes for an awesome learning experience!

Not a beginner? Need to shake off those cobwebs or simply improve your skills? You can also grab yourself higher level lessons when making your booking and maximize your time in resort to have the most incredible holiday.

The instructor was great, really made it easy to get the hang of it!

The majority of our trips are by coach travel due to the ease and cost. The pickup points for these are predetermined by your group leader in conjunction with us, but as a rule of thumb it’s usually campus or nearby and then London. For those that wish to make their own way to the resort this is of course also possible and will mean a reduction in price due to not taking a coach seat with ourselves.

I just strapped in for a season of Game of Thrones and we were there before I knew it.

Mountain Meals

Now available in more places than ever before, this trip favourite is often touted as one of the highlights of any holiday.

From dining in high altitude restaurants and tobogganing through the forests to torchlight descents there is a completely different mountain meal experience in each resort, some of our favourites include the moose bar BBQ in Tignes or the infamous Chantebise pre-apres meal in Alpe D’Huez.

The meal was soooo good, was an awesome day anyway, but that just made it 10 times better. I mean, who doesn’t love unlimited beer!!!

Evening Meals

If you want to take even more hassle out of your trip we also offer a great selection of evening meals in each resort we operate in.

Why not save yourselves the washing up at the end of the week and choose from either 3 or 4 nights of set meals in a local restaurant.

The food in Smithy’s was great, so much easier not having so much washing up to do either!

It may not be exciting but insurance should be right up there on the list of priorities along with your skis, board & helmet when it comes to snowsports trips – it is just not worth risking hitting the slopes without it.

As with all other trip essentials, we strive to make sure you have an option available to you and that’s why, through our system, you can purchase insurance with our chosen provider straight away at the point of booking. We have several comprehensive insurance packages on offer via our online booking system but always strongly recommend you read the policy wording carefully to make sure you select the best cover for you.

I was a little scared about getting everything sorted in France, but once the insurance company started a case it really smoothed things out.
