Blackpool Sixth Form College Ski Trip
The following blog was written by Sam Bentley from Blackpool Sixth Form College about their recent ski trip to Vallnord, Andorra in March 2015.
Our ski trip was great fun! Working with Ski Adaptable, we were able to quickly get quotes for resorts and use their brochures to consider a wide range of destinations and après-ski activities for our college.The journey was fantastic, with a top notch coach company commissioned for the job. After a safe and timely journey, we pulled in to Andorra and got settled in to our hotel with ease. The hotel was right at the bottom of a lift to the slopes which made it so much easier for our students and staff.
Having all hire equipment included was brilliant, we didn’t have to sort anything out at all, just turn up with the Ski Adaptable paperwork and get it all fitted! We all hit the slopes ready and raring to go, and were split into groups based upon ability. By the end of the week, the top students were thoroughly pushed in terms of their ability – even the novices got to the top of the mountain with ease, all of them making it competently down as well! The instructors were really second to none and our group formed good friendships with them.
After skiing finished, there was a still a load to do. Some students would go use the swimming facilities, some would go play pool and others would go and sit on the veranda of the local bar. All options were truly enjoyable in the sunny weather! We made use of the extra activities by going ice-skating for a very reasonable price which the students completely loved.
On our safe return, a quick student survey showed 100% satisfaction and total enjoyment for the trip. Even with 40% non-skiers, all would definitely go skiing again and rated the trip as excellent value for money. I am already using Ski Adaptable to book our next trip and cannot wait for Winter 2016!
All in all, I will definitely be using Ski Adaptable again as they were nothing short of excellent, with a level of service that I have not encountered before and would recommend.
