The trip always immediately follows the last week of Michaelmas term in Oxford & Cambridge. This year that means leaving on the evening of Friday 6th December and returning on Saturday 14th December.
No! The best thing about the modern Varsity Trip is the number of beginners that we take to the Alps each year. Over half the trip have never skied or skied only once before. We also have an extremely competitive beginners package that includes lessons and equipment hire.
The trip has historically been the cheapest seven days in the Alps you've been able to get. The price or this year is yet to be confirmed, keep a look out on our social media in September/October time in the run up to booking day.
Varsity Trip is the annual Oxford & Cambridge ski trip. Running since 1922, the trip is the oldest and largest of it's kind. We even started before the Winter Olympics! The trip began as a series of gruelling races between the two universities. Today the races remain, but 25% of the trip are beginners, and mid-week events ensure those who don't ski have a great time too.
We can't wait for you to join us on Varsity Trip 2018. In the mean time, get to know your college rep and look out for us around Oxford & Cambridge in October.
