Travel and Wellbeing
Snowslippers intrinsically believes that safety is paramount on any school skiing/snowboarding holiday.
Snowslippers was set up and run by two former teachers. Between them they have over 45 years' experience in dealing with youngsters. They also have experience in taking youngsters away on mountaineering trips and ski trips to the Alps. This ensures that Snowslippers really does understand the issues you face when being responsible for the care of other people's children.
Our team also has a vast experience and understanding of mountain safety with one director having spent time working on the RAF Mountain Rescue Team.
Health & safety
Snowslippers has taken safety into account at every single stage of your holiday.
We have worked with Health & Safety representatives from various Local Education Authorities to ensure the wellbeing of our guests.
Upon booking your school ski trip with Snowslippers, we will work with you and provide you with a range of documents that will support you in every aspect of Health and Safety. We will also, upon request, come to your school to talk about all aspects of the trip, including mountain safety.
We also recommend all guests apply in advance for a EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) through the NHS before traveling with us. This entitles UK citizens to free medical care whilst in particpating European countries. For more information regarding the EHIC card and its use please read EHIC Card - NHS
If you or any member of your party have any disabilities, it is extremely important that we make the necessary arrangements to make your holiday go smoothly. We must therefore insist that you contact our office before completing any reservation to ensure compatibility for the holiday that you chose.
