The hotel group we used in the past has been sold and will not be open during next winter season, arrangements have been made with other hotels who are offering a group rate. Schools may contact the hotels direct or in case of force majeure, bookings can be arranged through the tourist office. The group rate will only be available for a fixed period of time and the number of beds in each hotel is restricted. In order to guarantee a booking a deposit will have to be paid by the end of October.
The hotels would like to limit contact with the schools to one named person only. They need to be advised of any special dietary requirements at the time of booking. Skis and boots must not be worn inside the hotel but left as indicated by the hotel. There are a limited number of beds in each hotel so a first come first served will apply and will only be reserved with a deposit before 31 October 2022.
