At Snowscene our groups specialists are here to help you organise a school trip that your students (and staff) will be talking about for years to come.  Let our group specialists guide you on this journey, where we will help you create one of the best weeks in your school calendar blending both ski and cultural elements into a personalised itinerary to suit your school. Our experienced team will take the weight off your shoulders assisting with the planning and organising of your trip from start to finish.

Each school group trip is a unique experience. Snowscene create group ski trips to suit your school’s curriculum and individual requirements. We work with you to incorporate any required elements including eco-tourism, specific cultural experiences, trip journals, local sports information, wildlife educational programs, sustainability, and much more. Be assured that every Snowscene tour is both enjoyable and educational and far more than just a ski trip.

Snowscene School Ski Tours include flights, airport transfers, accommodation, daily transfers, meals, lift passes, lessons, snow gear and equipment hire, day trips, and experienced tour leaders if required. We can also offer unique package extras to ensure your school’s individual needs are met.

 At Snowscene we focus on International Group Travel to Japan and New Zealand. Popular destinations include Hakuba and Hokkaido in Japan and Queenstown, Wanaka and Mt Hutt in New Zealand. For those looking at domestic travel Mt Buller is a great option.

Start planning ahead, whether it be to the ski fields of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, or closer to home (The Great Barrier Reef or Outback Qld or Norfolk Island), we can offer your school Unique Educational Adventures; not just School Ski Trips.

Australia

WHY AUSTRALIA IS PERFECT FOR SCHOOL GROUPS

Our own backyard has plenty to offer skiers and snowboarders alike.  Australia is a perfect ski destination for school groups with school holidays coinciding with the Australian ski season (Jun-Sep). For many students this trip will be their first experience of skiing or snowboarding, and the daily snow sport group lesson ensures that all students progress their on-snow skills during the trip.  Unlike New Zealand, Australian ski resorts are unique in offering on snow accommodation providing a real Ski in Ski out experience.

New Zealand

south island nEW ZEALAND is king for group adventures

New Zealand is an ideal destination for school group ski and snowboard trips, providing many students with their first international travel experience, surrounded by their friends.  Flying into Queenstown or Christchurch International Airport our private charter coaches will take your group to your accommodation in either Queenstown, Wanaka or Methven.  In addition to the snow sports New Zealand has on offer, school groups can also participate in cultural activities plus an extravaganza of off-snow adrenaline infused adventures, including jet boating, luge rides, bungy jumping and zip-lining.

Japan

rich culture – powder snow – easy access for group travel

Japan’s cities and ski resorts offer the complete package for a culturally rich, adventure based activity packed school ski trip. World renowned powder snow, Ski in Ski out accommodation, polite and helpful locals, Japanese and Western cuisine, and a super efficient transport system, makes group travel to Japan an easy option for staff and students alike. Whilst Snowscene has been hosting groups to Hakuba for years, we can also tailor-make trips to other ski resorts including the Club Med Resorts in the north island of Hokkaido.

Private Charter Flights

Did you know Snowscene can offer to your school a private or shared flight charter?
