Posted by KM - Friday 13 September 2019

There are still places available on the ski trip to Austria next year. The visit is planned to take place from Friday 14 to Saturday 22 February 2020 and falls entirely within the school half-term holiday. All students, from beginners to advanced, will find both easy and challenging experiences on a great variety of slopes in Nassfeld, Austria.

The School is organising this trip again with the trusted provider, PGL and includes return travel by executive coach and ferry, six nights’ full board and accommodation at the Jugendsporthotel Leitner hotel. It also includes fully comprehensive travel insurance (including medical, travel delay, personal liability and 24-hour emergency service) is also included as is a six-day lift pass, five hours ski tuition a day and the hire of skis, boots, poles and helmets as well as a range of evening entertainments. The cost is £979, which can be paid in instalments and should your son/daughter wish to participate, please return the form https://parentgateway.strschool.co.uk/cloudcontact/pdfs/2019-09-12-09-27-42-ski-trip-2020.pdf with a non-refundable £100 deposit by Thursday 19 September at the latest. There are 42 spaces available and should more students wish to take part than there are places to offer, places will be allocated using a “first out of the hat” system providing the application was received by the deadline.
