There’s only one way to properly begin Varsity Trip, and that’s with the legendary Opening Night Party (ONP). Kick off the end of term in style with chart topping headliners brought to the Alps just for you. Best part? It’s free for everyone on the trip. Last year saw Chase & Status. Watch our facebook page as we announce our headliner(s) this year. - Free
A trip to Tignes would not be complete without a splash in Le Lagon: the perfect place to take the weight off and soak those ski legs. And if the swimming pool, slides and a relaxing spa weren’t enough to convince you to take a dip then we’ve added our own Varsity Trip feel to it. Expect outrageous inflatables, head-banging DJs and the chance to race your friends on the slides. Don’t forget to pack your speedos! Oh buoy. - £15
Now established as a VT classic, this is the perfect way to experience the resort in an adventurous manner and do something fun for a great cause! You and your team will be given a list of tasks to perform in a limited time around the resort. Not giving anything away now, but the challenges require both imagination and guts… All proceeds from the entry fee will be split between Oxford RAG and Cambridge RAG and donated to their 2017/2018 charities. - Free (£5 donation)
Fancy a few LGB&Ts? Last year, VT saw its first LGBTQIA+ club night which lit the atmosphere to the rafters. An event welcoming to and supportive of absolutely everyone, this is your chance to really cut those shapes and get down to the dancefloor.
Find romance at 3100m, this is speed dating at altitude. We’ll be pairing you up for a romantic ride on one of Tignes’ longest chairlifts.
Why not take an adventure into the wilderness? Varsity Trip has always been known for its stunning mountain meals, replete with fondue and fine wine. How about this year you take a ride on the wild side and experience the forests of Tignes beside a roaring campfire and inside a toasty tipi? You’ll have more beverages and food than you can stomach, and a fulfilling experience you won’t forget. Be sure to have your cameras at the ready when the sun goes down and the stars come up.
Come and join us for a night of hilarity at 2100m. Featuring an all-student line-up, this is your chance to see the best that your uni (and the other place) have to offer. Kept missing that performance because of an essay deadline? Not on Varsity Trip, so grab your place now.
Génépi Tasting: This special event lets you sample the best of Savoyard delicacies, including local Alpine Cheese, various types of saucisson, and the locally made liquor called Génépi. With an expert to guide you through the rich history of the area’s specialities, this is certainly not one to miss for the more sophisticated."
There are parties, and then there’s the Varsity Trip Final Night Party (FNP). This is the party of the Oxbridge year. If you thought ONP was amazing, just wait and see what FNP is like. This year’s headliner(s) will be part of the biggest ever line-up on a UK University Ski Trip.
VT2016 played host to Sigma and Sigala. We can’t wait to reveal what we’ve got in store for #TwentySevenTignes. Tickets are limited, and this won’t be one to miss.
