This will depend on airline choice, currency fluctuations and overall numbers. This price is inclusive of everything, all evening activities, visits and ski related activities, except personal ski clothing and spending money.
It does not include visas/costs which may be required for some nationals. Many countries do not need a visa such as British and Thai holders. Please check if you are not sure.
I look forward to hearing from you. I will be holding a meeting for parents once we have established a group. I hope you are able to support this school trip and I have done everything to make it as economical and action packed as possible!
