OUR STORY

As we packed our bags at the end of our last uni ski week; throwing away the empty VK’s and trying to identify whose fancy dress belonged to who, we started to contemplate what we would be doing for next years trip.

Quite frankly, there was nothing out there.

What we wanted was a society that used the university model as a foundation, but adapted it to the demands of the graduate market. A society where all are welcomed with open arms and a cold beer, no matter where you are from or your ski experience. Moreover, a business that exists independently from an overbearing SU, that has the complete creative freedom to do things in a way that the mountains have never seen before! 

So we decided we would put this right! Partnering with the top travel experts in the business, we want to offer the best value for money trip of the winter. How do we plan to achieve this? Unlike traditional ski weeks, instead of making our money directly from marking up our prices, we will be working together with sponsors to create unique events, that not only make your week amazing but helps connect you with some amazing brands.

A week like no other at an affordable price – it’s a win-win right?

Since then we have thrown rail jams in breweries, partied under the train tracks and on the Themes, and taken Avoriaz by storm and that is just this season. We have so much more to come. So grab a beer, grab your mate, grab your skis, and join the adventure. In the meantime, for more information and ticket release dates for future events and trips sign up to our mailing list here.
