Clothing and Safety Full ski equipment will be provided: ski’s, poles, boots. Lift passes will be given to students on the first day of skiing. Interski offer the hire of ski clothes for £35 for the week. PROPER ski clothing is compulsory – they will not allow people on the slopes in jeans and t-shirts! Some suggestions: check out cheap deals on e- bay; borrow from friends/family; hire from Interski for the week. (Students went skiing last year, they will have stuff...)
Ski Slope Safety All students to stay in the group at all times Lift passes to be carried at all times – lost passes will have to be paid for by the student EHIC and copies of passports to be carried at all times – NO heli airlift will be done without EHIC Valuables to be kept safe – at students own risk
The Essentials for the slopes: Helmet Goggles – optional extra, very good for cloudy days on the slopes. Waterproof ski jacket – really important to have a decent one!) Gloves – very important to keep your hands warm – you can buy them there, but really expensive) Trousers/salopettes – make sure they are waterproof, you will be on your backside at some stage! Lots of very warm socks..... Fleeces, jumpers and long sleeve shirts and jeans – sensible shoes! If you have thermal underwear – BRING IT!
