School Ski Trip New Zealand Tours Focusing on Education And Experience
As the joy of the summer heat and balmy evenings gives way to colder temperatures and frosty mornings, eyes suddenly turn to the prospect of winter activities and carving up the mountain. Schools throughout the world have been taking students on winter tours and school ski trips that provide them with the unique experience of learning and honing their sport aptitudes, gaining confidence in themselves through the acquisition of new skills as well as seeing an environment which too many is simply foreign.
Compared with the New Zealand dollar, the relative strength of the foreign currency is making New Zealand an attractive option for schools throughout the South Pacific and Malaysia. With the emergence of low-cost airlines such as Jet Star, Air Asia, and Pacific Blue, the costs of flying to New Zealand from Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore has dropped significantly. The costs associated with flying to New Zealand for the purposes of school group travel and educational tours have now become comparable; and in some cases even cheaper, than traditional transport within their own countries of residence.
New Zealand is blessed with a range of mountain ranges and terrains which provide the perfect backdrop for school ski trips and snow tours. Being divided into two islands, the South Island of New Zealand offers the highest number of slopes and terrains. With the snowfall and conditions being extremely reliable and consistent, as seen over the past several years, the risk of a school ski trip or snow tour becoming compromised by the lack of suitable winter conditions is highly unlikely.
Leading tour companies that specialize in educational tours and school group travel understand the need to maximize the benefit of the investment required to provide such winter experiences for your students; maximizing the exposure to a range of the best slopes and powder in the South Island, offering 6 different mountains in an adventure-packed 7-day tour. Combined with the ability to hire gear, as well as access basic and advanced instruction for both skiing and snowboarding at near costs prices, New Zealand educational tour companies, provide the best value for money for your school. Among the ski, fields visited include some of the most iconic and visited terrains throughout the world, including Mt Hutt, Mt Ohau, Treble Cone, Cardrona, Coronet Peak, and The Remarkables.
Don’t leave the experience of your students to chance when booking your school ski trip or snow tour. Ensure that you use a specialist New Zealand educational tour company that employs only the best of ski and tour guides who have an intimate knowledge of the slopes – this is the only way that you can guarantee that your students will have the adventure and educational experience of a lifetime.
