About Equity

About Equity

What makes Equity trips so different?

We’ve got the experience

Simply, we’ve been offering inspiring experiences longer than anyone else. From local contacts to health and safety issues, our 80 years in the business gives us a huge advantage. This means we can help you with whatever you are looking for, let us know, and we’ll put together something unique. We make it look easy, too.

We think differently

We aren’t predictable. We aren’t boring. Wonder why? It’s because we absolutely love what we do. And when you’re passionate about something, it always shows, letting us provide you with wonderfully unique adventures.

We develop

Of course, our trips are always exciting. But they’re also about learning, which means everyday part of your trip ties back to the curriculum in some way. We’re absolutely committed to insuring this.

Sustainability

We believe that travel broadens the mind and creates an optimal learning experience for all; however we are aware of tourism’s environmental impacts. We have taken every reasonable step to becoming more sustainable, considering environmental, economic and social issues across the breadth of our operation.

ClubHotels and other accommodations

Most hotels now feature energysaving measures as standard, and many of the hotels featured in this brochure source local suppliers for food, excursions and more, which helps to support the local economy whilst also minimising the impact of transport. We also provide educational materials on sustainability in our ClubHotel resorts.

Transport

We appreciate that some forms of transport are greener than others, which is why we offer you a choice of how you travel. Whilst most of our tours are available by coach or air, we can also offer transport to the French resorts of La Plagne, Tignes and Le Corbier by Eurostar.

Resorts

Most of the ski resorts we use implement an environmental management system to protect and safeguard the fragile mountain ecosystems in which they are located. Equity School Ski are proud to work in association with SkiClub of Great Britain. Visit www.skiclub.co.uk for more information on their ‘Respect the Mountain’ campaign, which raises awareness and provides information on environmental issues in skiing, and to check out the great benefits of SkiClub membership.

Sloping Off

For the 14/15 ski season, Equity School Ski will also be offering Sloping Off Hotels, providing excellent value for coach groups. Although the hotels are a little further from the slopes, you’ll get the best possible ski experience along with high standards of safety and service. Look out for this logo throughout the website:
