Après ski

What you’ve all been waiting for… the iconic Varsity Trip aprés ski is back with a bang! Head to Cocorico’s for band performances, dancing tunes, free food and drink, stash giveaways and the unmissable Varsity Trip atmosphere.

Silent Disco

Swap your helmets for headphones on Tuesday night - with multiple channels the disco might be silent but you definitely won’t be!


Wilderness Camp

Cozy teepees, snowy landscapes, fine wine, artisanal cheeses, and a crackling fire await you under the starry night sky. Join us for an amazing evening of rustic luxury in the snow!


Crew Swap

Missed Sesame? Missed Jamal's? We're bringing the cultural phenomenon of the crewdate/swap (depending on your educational orientation) to the Alps. Get your pennies ready and your best fines out, the Alps isn't ready for us.

Havoc with Haute Mess

Oxford's first drag night is here to bring you the queerest and messiest space for total self-expression. Whether you're a King, Queen, Monster, or just a messy bitch who lives for drama, we wanna see you get messy.
Haute Messy.


The Races

The reason we’re all here. 101 years ago, the finest Oxbridge skiers competed in the first Varsity Race. More than a century later, the question still remains: which blue are you?

Slalom Party and RailJam

Don't miss out on this winter sports extravaganza! Get ready to watch your friends fly down the slalom course, zipping through gates with precision and style. And that's not all – the excitement continues with our Rail Jam, where riders showcase their tricks on the rails.

Brunch and
Mountain Yoga

Start your day the right way with a morning yoga class. Take in the breathtaking mountain views at La Folie Douce and enjoy a delicious brunch afterwards.

Slopeside Soiree

 Varsity Trip is hosting the largest mountain meal in the Alps and you are all invited! An exclusive nighttime gondola ride over a luminous glacier sets the stage for a gourmet 4-course feast at La Folie Douce paired with delicious drinks. This is more than just a meal; it's a mesmerising experience with performers that exceed imagination and DJs who'll keep you dancing all night long. You definitely won’t want to miss it.

Black Run Bingo

Ou Est Le Poulet?

Teaming up with Oxford and Cambridge RAG, we've set crazy challenges for you to do in teams around the resort. Gather your flock of friends for a feather-raising, wing-flapping adventure in Tignes! It's a race against time to find the elusive ‘poulet’ and win an amazing prize, all while raising money for a great cause. Let the feathered frenzy begin!

Pool Party

Swap your ski jackets for swimsuits, because it's time to make a splash! Dive into a snowy Alps oasis where slides, inflatables and three free drinks await, all set to the beat of an amazing DJ.

Off Piste Park End

If you've already ticked off all 8 Parkend nights in Michaelmas and are still hungry for more, don’t panic! Parkend is travelling all the way to Tignes so get ready to "put your hands in the air if you're with your best friends" and savour a slice of home. Cambridge crew, Parkend might seem like enemy territory, but you're all warmly welcome – let us show you how it's done as we bring the Parkend magic to the snowy slopes!
