School and College Groups

With a combined experience of over 40 years working in the educational ski course market, Ski 2’s experienced owners are perfectly placed to offer the very highest quality school ski holidays for school and college groups.

Using carefully chosen hotels, ideally situated for youth groups, we offer the ultimate in fully-inclusive school ski holidays, with absolutely no hidden extras. We offer a hassle-free package, managed in-resort by a co-owner of Ski 2, who is available 24 hours a day.

IMPORTANT – We are not currently accepting new bookings from school and college groups for 2021 onwards. Educational groups looking to travel to the Aosta Valley could contact

Our concentration in the resort of Champoluc for nearly 20 years allows us to guarantee that nothing is left to chance. We work week-in, week-out with our hoteliers, mountain restaurants, the lift company and our other suppliers – they all understand our requirements, and we in turn get the very best service from them. We guarantee that there will be no more than 4 schools (as a maximum) in the resort at any one time, assuring you of our full attention at all times.

“Kevin, Rob and I just wanted to say a huge thank you once again for such successful school ski holidays. We and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed ourselves even given the two little mishaps we had! Pupils have been overwhelmingly positive when speaking to their parents which is great news for us as hopefully some of them will return again next year. Our Headteacher has confirmed that we will be able to start organising for next year’s trip in the next week or two so I will definitely be in touch very soon. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff in resort, plus Sarah in the UK office. Fingers crossed we have sufficient numbers of pupils signing up for next year and we will see you again!

Kind regards Mags

My son James had a fantastic holiday and now wants to be a ski instructor when he’s older. He went from non-skier to red runs from day 3 and skiing sections of black runs on day 5. “

“Our daughter had a great time, she hasn’t stopped talking about it since she got back. She went with the basic skiing skills and has returned as a confident skier. The group she was in really pushed and encouraged her. She really enjoyed mixing with new people and the evening activities.”

“Speaking to Kevin, he really enjoyed every minute of the school ski trip, especially the pizza and karaoke night. He thought the ski instructor was brilliant and loved being out in the mountains all day and skiing his socks off. He said the resort was great for the group and he was thrilled to have tackled and conquered the black runs. Once again thank you for taking him and giving him such a memorable experience.”

Our Pedigree

Any company is only as good as its key staff and the founders of Ski 2 have a vast experience working in the ski industry and, in particular, working with school and college groups.

Simon Brown holds the UK’s highest level ski instructors qualification – BASI Grade 1 (as well as a PSV driving licence) and has over 20 year’s experience working in the Scottish ski areas, on dry ski slopes in the UK and more recently for one of the UK’s most respected schools ski tour operators, Interski – the leading light in the development of group ski holidays.

Simon was Resorts’ Manager for Interski, responsible for co-ordinating a team of staff to run ski courses for over 10,000 pupils each winter season. He is based in Champoluc for the winter season and in the summer months lives in North Wales with his wife Ruth and their family.

Roger Walker has worked in the ski industry for over 25 years, and until 1998 also worked for the tour operator Interski (in the final years, co-ordinating the sales and marketing of the company’s holidays).

Roger is also a qualified ski instructor – BASI Grade 3, and has spent a number of winters in the Alps on the Interski resort team. He now manages the Ski 2 office in the UK.

Roger is married with 2 children, both of whom have learnt to ski in Champoluc.

Both Simon and Roger have the aim of running a successful ski tour operation focused on offering quality ski holidays to discerning clients. Their goal is a long term one and their experience and skills ensure that every Ski 2 ski course is a resounding success. We hope that you will trust our commitment and join us soon for what could well be the best ski course that you have ever run.
