The annual visit to Austria and the European Alps by schools on their annual ski trip plays a major part in the livelihoods of individuals and families in Austria; however, it also helps to contribute to the emission of CO2 to into the atmosphere which is a major contributor to global warming. If we simply sit back and let global warming continue unchallenged, your school ski trip may well become a thing of the past!
Snowslippers in partnership with Climate Care
Snowslippers have subscribed to Climate Care. This is a service that helps our business to repair the damage of that our and your activities do to the climate. It does this by ‘offsetting’ the greenhouse gas emissions, such as CO2, from activities by reducing an equivalent amount of CO2 on our and your behalf.
Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency
These reductions are made through a range of projects in renewable energy and energy efficiency, which not only fight climate change but bring benefits to communities round the world.
Snowslippers cares for the environment in which we live, work and play. We make a yearly contribution to Climate Care, which, in effect, cancels out the CO2 emissions we have produced; this in turn helps to counteract our contribution to the greenhouse effect.
Whilst Snowslippers has made a contribution to cancel out the effect of your schools ski trip you can still visit the Climate Care website to work out how much CO2 you will be responsible for when taking a holiday, either with Snowslippers or another operator. You will then have the opportunity to contribute to the scheme to ‘offset’ your CO2 ‘footprint’.

Snowslippers and our partners
Snowslippers have sourced coaches that you will use for your school ski trip which adhere to the guidelines issued by the Environment Agency. Some of our transport suppliers are currently looking to convert their coaches so that they can run on more environmentally friendly bio diesel.
