Ski Trip 2020


SKI TRIP 2020 🏂

Forty children along with Mr McWilliams, Miss Bailie, Mr Smyth and Ms Hutchman will be going on our ski trip to Ehrwald in Austria where we will be staying in ‘The Hotel Sonnenburg’. The beautiful Austrian resort of Ehrwald is in a fantastic location just over 1hr NW of Innsbruck, close to the famous Zugspitze Glacier, which borders Bavaria. The Hotel Sonnenburg sits on the Ehrwald slopes and is just 5-10 minutes walk from the centre. It is a superb resort offering guaranteed snow and no less than 213kms of piste. Fantastic for all grades of skier with 74 blue, 55 red & 11 black runs.

The Sonnenburg has been designed to cater to the needs of clubs and groups. The friendly hosts at the Sonnenburg have had years of experience working with Irish groups, and will ensure that our stay there is perfect. The hotel accommodates 2 - 4 guests per room, and has a total of 20 rooms, so is ideal for groups, both large and small.
