I don't know how to ski, is this trip for me?
Absolutely! We have had plenty of members join us on this trip who are first-timers. You can book ski lessons here. We recommend booking any lessons in the morning before 12:00 pm to avoid missing out on any of the IVY activities! There are also lots of non-skiing activites during the trip that you can partake in.
I have more questions, who can I contact?
Please reach out to our IVY Travel Team at email@example.com and we'd be happy to answer any other questions you have!
