Feach Ski Trip January 2016


Feach Family Ski Trip

 Would your family be interested in going skiing with Feach in January 2016?

We are hoping to get the Feach Family Ski Trip up and running next January. We are currently talking to two tour operators about the packages, There is two approximate options listed below. We need to gauge the level of interest in order to get the best deal.



Option 1 

  • Fly 9/1/16  Dublin to Salzburg inc 20kg baggage allowance
  • Stay in 4 star Hotel Bruckenenwrit, St Johann, Austria on half board basis for 7 nights
  • Pick up/Return to Airport
  • Cost of Flight/Accommodation & Transfers @ €740 per person. Child price to be clarified. 





Child > 10


6 day Ski pass






Skis/Boots/Helmet & lessons











These are approximate prices and offers may be available


depending on numbers going




Option 2  

  • Organise own Flights - Dublin to Salzburg
  • 7 nights half board in 4 star Hotel Crystal, 6 day lift pass. ski hire and airport transfers

  • Adult @ €830

  • Teenager ( 15-18 in same room as parents) @ €740

  • Children @ €693

  • Instruction for 6 days @ €150 per person (adults)

  • Flights are approx €150 return with 35kg ( 20 kg+ 15kg  ) bags at €80

Both options are similarly priced at approx €1100 - €1200 per adult and €150 less per child. Advantage of option 2 is that flight prices could be cheaper ie at present flights on 16-23 January are €130 exc bags so savings can be had but need to committ to a date and no all in the group may get the cheap prices. We have asked for a Group rate  but are awaiting a reply.

Above excludes lessons for VIP which hopefully NCBI would cover. Normally NCBI will only pay for this leaving families to pay cost of flights, accommodation, lift passes and equipment for VIP.

  Can you email if your think your family would still be interested in going next January. If you have any queries regarding skiing or what it involves please e-mail feachmail@gmail.com
