Ski Trip 2013!

If you would like the chance to join the ski trip in 2013 at half term to Courmayeur, Italy  you need to get a letter from students services asap!



This year we are very pleased to have managed to secure a provisional booking to Courmayeur in Italy with Interski, a company renowned for school skiing and with over 27 years’ experience. This excellent resort is situated on the Italian side of the Mont Blanc Tunnel and, as a result, is only 10 hours from Calais (by far the shortest Calais-to-resort time we’ve ever had!).  Our 2011 trip here was very successful.




We will be based at Hotel Le Clou, a small friendly 3* family run hotel situated in the small village of Arvier, a short coach drive from Courmayeur.  We will be the only group in the hotel which has full en-suite rooms (mainly sleeping 2 or 3 people), a TV and video room and a large restaurant which in addition to serving excellent traditional food, is also used as a meeting room during the evenings. There is a good range of après ski facilities such as ice skating, tubing and tobogganing (very popular on previous trips!).courmayeur_026
