I have never skied before, can I still come?
Of course! We welcome skiers and boarders of all levels. We have a large number of beginners on our trips each year. We provide lessons as an option when booking, which are highly recommended for beginners. Not only will it help you get the most out of your time on the slopes, but you’ll be learning with other people on the trip too. If you’re the only beginner in your group of friends, it’s not an issue, as there will be plenty of other people on the trip for you to ski and board with.
Do I need insurance?
We recommend that everyone who comes on the trip has insurance. You can book insurance as part of booking the trip itself, or you can buy it separately from an independent provider. Check the T&Cs of your policy to understand what is and is not covered.
Do I need a helmet?
We recommend that you wear a helmet (we do!), though it is not compulsory. The overwhelming majority of people on the slopes wear helmets.
I am an advanced skier, is this trip right for me?
Absolutely! Our trips cater for all levels and interests. We can arrange ski guides for those wishing to explore all mountain terrain, and we often choose resorts with ski parks too. This year, there will be heli-skiing as an option for the most advanced.
Can I come on the trip if I am not based in the UK?
Yes, we provide staggered transfers from Geneva airport to our resort. You can fly from anywhere you like and meet us at the airport. Alternatively, you may make your own way to the resort.
I do not know anyone on the trip, can I still come?
Yes, we have people coming every year who don’t know anyone – it’s a great opportunity to meet new, like-minded people and make friends. Let us know if you’re coming on the trip and we’ll make sure we introduce you to people throughout the trip.
What are the opportunities to socialize?
There are three organised ‘socials’ throughout the week, which vary from trip to trip. Past examples include fancy dress nights, live music and the infamous ‘meal on the mountain’. We run a ‘Meet & Ski’ each year for those looking to find skiers and boarders of similar ability, which is a leisurely cruise down the slopes, breaking for lunch and après ski.
Can I bring my own equipment?
Yes, please feel free to bring your own skis, boards or boots. Note that there might be an additional charge with the airline for additional sports equipment.
What is the age range of people that come on the trip?
People of all ages are welcome, although the majority of those attending our trips are aged 22 – 35.
I work for a technology vendor and I would like to bring a group on the next Ski Network trip?
Please get in touch via our contact page, outlining your name, phone number, email and company name. A member of our team will get in touch.
I have a friend and/or other half that is looking to join us on the trip that doesn’t work for a technology or consulting vendor. Is this allowed?
Yes, it is. We often have friends and partners join the trip. They are just as welcome.
