Aprés ski

Daily aprés means that if one thing is guaranteed, it's that the day isn't over when the lifts shut. With huge aprés tunes, free food and drink, stash giveaways and an atmosphere unrivalled in the alps, don't miss out on your daily dose of immense fun.

Mountain Meal

Want the ultimate alpine experience? Treat yourself to some great food with great company. With wine provided, what better way to fully immerse yourself in alpine culture, and kickstart your evening?

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.


Fine if you're not going to cop a ticket.

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 best skiers at Oxbridge compete in their 99th annual varsity race, the oldest team ski races in the world. Only one university can prevail, will it be light or dark blue?

Slalom Party

With music, food and drink on the side of the Stade (the race course) you're guaranteed to have a brilliant time, whilst also showing your support for your blue.

This new event gives you the opportunity to take a break from skiing and show off your artistic side whilst on the trip. Ditch your phone and document the beauty of the mountains with pencils, paint and paper!

Mountain Zumba

Join Zac to shake it out at the ultimate VT dance party in the mountains! A workout so fun you could mistake it for your college bop.

Ice Rink Disco

Get your skates on and have a boogie. Disco lights, loud music, drinks, the perfect start to the evening.


Join us for a sophisticated night of cabaret hosted by our charming masters of ceremonies. Enjoy some delicious food while watching comedy, drag, original music, and more.



A classic night to start the week. If the journey to the alps doesn't tire you out too much, head on over to Favela and sing your heart out.
