From School to expeditions

Winter in Europe

During the UK winter months skiing weekends in Scotland are often arranged, with funding able to contribute to the costs of accommodation, ski passes and ski hire. Skiing activities for groups can also be organised all year round, with the AT school frequently in the Scottish Highlands.

European tours are also on the agenda, from multiday routes across Norway, through off-piste and variable terrain treks at popular European ski resorts, and on to greater challenges, such as journeying high into the Alps with skis in ‘walk mode’, before a pristine descent into an awe-inspiring mountain valley.
