Dear friends of Austria’s fantastic snowy mountains, “Schihaserl” and Après Ski - join us on a day full of skiing and fun, nothing can't be more Austrian! Sounds good? Then you should definitely join us on our ESN Graz Ski Trip for an amazing day at the skiing resort Kreischberg, located not too far away from Graz. Its slopes, a total of 42 kilometres for all levels of difficulty, are a perfect chance to enjoy Austria's beautiful mountains!
WHEN: Thursday, 08th of December 2022
MEETING POINT: 6.00 a.m. at Franz-Graf Allee (next to the Opera Graz)
30€ - Buddys with ESNcard
35€ - Students with ESNcard
45€ - Students without ESNcard
+ 15€ full equipment rental (optional)
+ 10€ instructor (optional)
What's included in the basic price:
Transportation from Graz and back 1 day ski pass
Ski/snowboard instruction for 4 hours. As the slopes on the mountains can be very different from the slopes you have tried before (such as indoor or perhaps grass or sand), we highly recommend getting an instructor. We at ESN pay a lot extra for this service for you and the cost of a private instructor would be many times higher. So, if you haven’t skied on a real mountain yet, please consider this special offer for you. We're looking very carefully for english speaking instructors. Ski/snowboard rental: including boots, perhaps helmet / NOT included: goggles, gloves, ski clothes…);
Please understand that we are not giving spots to ALPS participants for this event as we also want to give all other students the opportunity to join us on a ski trip. The sign up will be during our office hours from Tue, 29th of November until Tue, 6th of March (cancellation deadline: Fri, 2nd of December) Make sure that you know your shoe size (European size), your height (in cm) and your weight (in kg), if you want to rent equipment! Also there are following rules for the sign up in our office hours: You can pay only in cash. Bring the full amount! (depending on your optional choices)
You can sign up only personally during the office hours. Not for a friend, nor can a friend sign up for you. Waiting list also have to pay. When demand is high we will try to organise a bigger bus, but we can't promise. You cannot sell your seat for the skiing event to another person. The place will be given to the next person on the waiting list, if you do that or try to do that. If you are on the waiting list and a spot clears you will be notified via email. Thank you for your cooperation!
