Alpendorf, Austria, December 2011
This years trip will run from Saturday 31st December until Saturday 7th January (arriving and leaving on those dates).
It is a "self drive" trip and the distance is 630kms (all Autobahn except the last 2 kms). You are responsible for booking your own accommodation. The reason is that it is mainly families going on the trip, (but everybody is welcome) and different families have different needs. Some want 5* luxury Hotel with Wellness, some want just a Pension, some want just a room or apartment with self catering, others want with Halbpension etc etc etc. All available accommodation can be found under "Unterkünfte" at www.alpendorf.at. If anybody has major problems, give me a call and I will do what I can to help.
There is no deposit to be paid for the trip, all I need is the money for the lift passes and ski school (if participating) about 1 month beforehand.
The cost of 6 days ski lessons (4 hours a day) is 118 Euros. There is a 40 Euros subsidy from the ski club towards adult ski club members lessons, which brings the price down to 78 Euros for 24 hours worth of lessons (pretty good value !!!!). If you are an internal member and you're not having ski lessons for yourself, then you can transfer your subsidy entitlement to one of your children.
6 day adult ski pass costs 213 Euros;
for a child that was born from 1993 to 1995 the pass costs 190 Euros;
for a child born from 1996 to 2005 it is 122.50 Euros and;
for a child born from 2006 onwards, no lift pass is required as long as accompanied by an adult or ski instructor.
Included in the price is a 3 Euros deposit for the Electronic Lift Pass which is refunded when you return it at the end of the trip.
For those who want to go on the trip, please inform me so that I have an idea of numbers.
