Update: The coach leaves at 7am on Friday 30th March.
Following the enormous success of last year’s skiing holiday to Austria, and the continued interest from a large number of pupils, we are planning to run a similar skiing trip to America in 2018.
The ski trip is being organised through SkiBound’, a travel Company we have used before who specialise in school trips.
The trip will be to Sunday River, Maine, U.S.A. with a stop-over in New York between Good Friday 30th March and Saturday 7th April 2018
The cost of the trip will be £1460, including direct flights from London Gatwick to New York and transfer by coach to the hotel, together with 6 night’s half-board accommodation at the Snow Cap Inn. The Snow Cap Inn is well located at the base of Sunday River Mountain and the lifts are only a 5 minute walk away or a 2 minute shuttle ride. The hotel has excellent facilities, including a giant screen TV room, cosy den, games room and hot tub. Pupils will be accommodated four to a room (sharing two Queen Beds). Rooms are en-suite with cable TV. We will be served a continental buffet breakfast and 3 course evening meal daily.
Pupils will be on the slopes for 5 days and be involved in ski school for four hours a day, receiving friendly and appropriate tuition from qualified American instructors. Equipment, lift passes and ski helmets are also included in the price.
Many pupils will be interested in the shopping available during the holiday, as the U.S.A. is renowned for excellent deals on most major sports and designer names. We will spend half a day shopping at Premium Outlets which boasts over 80 stores.
Finally, as part of this trip, we will spend two days and a night in New York. Whilst there, we will have dinner at the ‘Hard Rock Cafe’ on Times Square, visit the Empire State Building for the most amazing view of the New York skyline at night and a city tour taking in all the major sites.
PLEASE NOTE: Any pupil who is aged 16 at the time of travel will have to pay an additional £75 for Air Passenger Duty –
It is very important that payment is made on or before these dates as we have a payment schedule with the booking company. Overpayments can be made at any time.
Please note that once a place has been confirmed, the deposit and subsequent balances are strictly non-refundable. This applies even f the school decides that, because of misconduct/poor attitude on the part of your son/daughter, it would not be appropriate for him/her to take part.
Skiing is a physically demanding sport and requires a good level of fitness, so please bear this in mind.
