August 17-21 Kids/Family “Truants” Week
Have you noticed that school holiday dates aren’t great for skiing? Due to this organisational failure by the government, a few families have picked a week in the heart of the season to take the kids out of school for a ski in, ski out holiday at the Basin.
We’ll extend club prices to families booking these dates, so it’ll be the cheapest family ski holiday you’ll ever find 😎
As an example, 6 days, 5 nights, all accomodation, meals and lift tickets, Parents $570, under 18s $430, under 13s $345, under 10s only $250!
The more the merrier, so if you’re interested in a family friendly ski week, shoot us a line on with who is coming and your dates and we can work out a package for you.
CUSSC Ski Week. University holidays begin.
