Think of the best holiday you've ever been on... Double it... Double it again... Sink a jägerbomb and double it once more. Don't believe us? Just check out the edit from the last year's trip to Val D'Isère!


Here we go again. This year, we’ve chosen THE resort for Easter skiing: Alpe d'huez. This sun blessed South-facing beauty will have your goggle tan sorted faster than you can say “Anyone got any SPF 50?”.

As usual, our friends at NUCO Travel have sorted you an absolute stinker of a trip:
-Return coach travel;
-Lift Pass;
-Carbon offset.

-Open Air party (this hugely popular event returns this year – Headliners to be announced. Previous years have seen the likes of Ed Solo, My Nu Leng, Disclosure and Mella Dee!!)
-Mountain Meal (cheese fondue and a big ol’ party)
-YOGA (this went down an absolute treat last year; we couldn’t resist)
This year will also see the return of the infamous VALLEY RALLY! We’ve got some cracking ideas for it and will keep you all up-to-date.

Alpe d'huez has got some lovely wide-open green runs all the way through to the world’s longest black run and another that tunnels itself through the mountain. The party’s sorted too: Folie, many a bar and a two nightclubs.


A uni ski trip is a rite of passage as a student, THE holiday you’ll never forget. Places on our Easter trip fly off the shelves, so get in touch and get booked on!

BUDS is the UK's biggest and bestest drinking... whoops, I mean dryslope... competition that happens every year in Edinburgh. We all travel up together and stay in a hostel for a weekend of skiing, sending and spectative drinking on the fantastic Scottish hillside. We sure do make the best of our two nights in the Burghhhh, with surprises and sick nights out planned for you guys. Check out some piccys below to see what you're in for.

We can't wait for another great game of BUDS!


Kings is like a saga. Like a really sick series of movies, except you get to be a part of it. Get ready for fancy dress and debauchery as we embark on four ridiculous day trips of speeding and partying on wet rainy slopes (Oh yeah, and all that for the stellar price of £0,00!!), followed by the pinnacle, Kings Finals weekend.

The best way to describe Kings Finals is a shorter version of BUDS - if BUDS is the marathon, Kings Finals is the sprint. We all head down south together to Mt Gloucestershire to cheer as our racers do their best to speed down a carpet as fast as possible. This is a mental sprint with a day of drinking in the sun (yasss) with all the other snowsports unis (we're the best skiers on the hill) followed by a secret event all together as a group before heading to a Bristol club to top off the night. After a jaunt around the park the next day, we'll roll back on the bus and let you collapse into bed (or the comfy Friendship benches, pint in hand) once we land back in Manchester.


There are a number of things we can guarantee you right now:
1) You WILL eat your own bodyweight in Spoons breakfast 

2) See point 1.
