The school ski trip will be one of the most memorable trips a student will experience. Committed to providing a unique outdoor experience, HTS Total Ski believes in creating a ski tour to improve students’ personal, social and emotional development. Amongst the many benefits to be gained from an outdoor adventure on the slopes, we believe our school ski trips support students staying active through a range of après-ski activities, strengthen bonds with their peers, and gain independence while away from home. It is through this devotion to providing an unforgettable ski experience that sees schools return to Austria with HTS Total Ski year after year.
