Please note, the following is a sample itinerary for a typical 5 day school ski trip. Everything from the amount of time you will spend gaining ski tuition to the types of activities you will enjoy in the evening, will vary from ski operator to operator. But if you have never taken your school to a ski resort before, the following will give you a flavour of how the trip could progress for your school group.

Day One: Journey to resort

Your journey to resort is a key decision. Flights will be quicker, even with transfer times you could be settling into your accommodation by the first afternoon, giving you almost a full extra day. Coach travel, while cheaper, may not see you arriving until day two.

Day Two: Ski fitting and settling in

Assuming you are travelling by coach, ski fitting will take place in the afternoon after your arrival. Getting the correct equipment is important to your enjoyment of the trip. Students will be kitted out for the days ahead. You will all have time to familiarise yourself with the accommodation and immediate surroundings, before an evening meal and some evening entertainment.

Day Three/Four/Five: Learning to ski and a whole lot more!

Ski Tuition in the morning might begin at 9am so it is important to get up and breakfasted in plenty of time, especially if your accommodation is a short transfer by coach or bus to the actual ski slope. There will be a break for lunch (usually taken in the resort itself rather than back at the hotel) before a further hour or two's tuition in the afternoon. The remains of the afternoon will be filled with further activities before it is time to make your way back to the hotel for the evening meal. Evening entertainment or 'apres ski' follows, with operators providing activities such as pizza nights, awards evenings, and plenty more.

Day Six: Final chance to ski

The final day in resort will be slightly shorter giving school's time to return ski equipment to the outfitters. You will often have an overnight departure for your long journey back to the UK.

Day Seven: Arrival back in the UK.
