You will get many WOW experiences. Words like “spectacular & breathtaking view”, “amazing & unforgettable landscape” will be used a lot during your holiday.
The Dolomites are the perfect setting for a ski holiday. Here, UNESCO-protected landscapes combine with a sunny climate and immaculate pistes to create one of the world’s most beautiful and enjoyable ski regions. Meanwhile, state-of-the-art snowmaking systems ensure the slopes are fast and fun, whatever the weather.
The huge Dolomiti Super Ski region of Italy is located on the southern flank of the Alps offering great weather and one of the most beautiful mountainous regions in the world as recognised by UNESCO. It comprises of 12 valleys, 450 ski lifts with 1200 kms of piste. We are visiting one of these valleys, the SkiAREA Campiglio Dolomiti Di Brenta and skiing in the resorts of Folgarida, Marilleva, Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo with 150 kms of piste.
The ski area alone has been given numerous awards by the world's largest test portal for ski areas (Skiresort.info), designating it as top ski area, with perfect scores for Variety of Runs and Resort Ski Size. With snow conditions during a season ever more of a concern it is also worth noting Skiresort.info's further awards (below), as well as the 1670 snow cannons covering 95% of the slopes.

Blackheath High School

11th - 18th February 2022
The response to the Blackheath High School Ski trip has been fantastic but the number of students wishing to travel has exceeded the 50 places available.
We are looking at options so we can accommodate all those who have already booked and those who have yet to book. At the moment there is no guarantee that it will be possible to take everybody skiing next February but we are hopeful a solution can be found so no children are left disappointed.
If you have already booked and paid a deposit but, at the end of the day are unsuccessful in securing a place all monies paid will of course be refunded.
If you have yet to make a reservation but would still like your child to travel please go through the booking process, you will then receive by return an email from ourselves requesting payment, for the moment ignore this request. Once we know how many students in total wish to travel we will have a meeting with Mr Masters at school to plot the way forward and with a bit of luck we shall be in a position to give you all good news towards the end of next week.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to give me ( Gerry ) a call at The Ski Company on 020 8858 9535 or Mr Masters at school.
