How Rooms Are Assigned
Rooms at the resort are hotel rooms / condominiums and most include kitchens and a fireplace and are designed to sleep four, six or eight people. When they register for the trip students are asked to provide names of roommates. All rooms are assigned on a same sex basis. To the extent possible, we assign rooms on the basis of student preferences. There is a limit on the number of rooms that accommodate six and eight persons. Students requesting roommates for these larger size rooms may have to be accommodated in two smaller rooms. SKI TRAVEL will work with the student representative for the group to ensure the most desirable accommodations for everyone.
If your roommate preference changes after you register please email your new preference to firstname.lastname@example.org 14 Days prior to your trip date PLEASE NOT SOONER.

Travel Time and Rest Stops
Travel time to Tremblant, Canada is approximately 12 hours. In addition, the bus makes at least three stops, twice for short bathroom breaks and once for a meal. At the halfway point of the trip we stop to pick-up new bus drivers for the rest of the trip.
Arrival at Tremblant: Distribution of Vouchers
The buses arrive at the resort, usually before 7:00 a.m. The first order of business is to change for skiing then distribute vouchers or tickets purchased by the students. Every student is given a lift ticket, which allows him or her unlimited access to the mountaintop for two days + 1 day (3 total) at the resort. In addition, students who rented skis or snowboards will be given their vouchers and students taking ski or snowboard lessons will be directed to the site for lessons. After everyone has received his or her vouchers, the group will exit the bus and begin to change clothing to ski or snowboard.
Check-in Procedures and Security Deposit
Check-in takes place around 4:00 p.m. on the day of arrival. Each student will be provided with a room key and a lock to secure their locker for storing equipment and other valuables. Students will also be given a damage report form to fill out which lists any damage to the furniture and fixtures in their room at the time they check into the room. This is very important as prior damage might mistakenly be considered new if the student does not carefully document existing damage at check-in. After check-out (on the bus ride home), the $20 security deposit collected at the beginning of the trip will be returned to students so long as there was no damage to the room or public areas outside the room.
Student Responsibility for Equipment and Personal Items
Students are responsible for all rented equipment and should take measures to ensure that all equipment is properly stored in lockers and secured with the lock provided at check-in. In addition, students are responsible for their personal belongings. Any valuable items (Iphones, cell phones, MP3 players, etc.) should not be left in luggage on the bus before check in or arrival day. Students should make sure these items are with them or left in a secure place. Chaperones or staff will be available to assist students who need to store valuables before check-in.
Evening Activities for Students
Skiing and snowboarding activities come to an end at dark (4:00 p.m) each day. Students have a wide variety of things to do in the evenings in the Village. There are a number of restaurants in Tremblant Village that handle large groups and students can go to these restaurants in groups of 10 or 12 and be accommodated. There are nightly activities such as the Aqua Source ($12-15 pass) indoor/outdoor waterpark. It has a swimming pool and hot tubs as well as a movie theater featuring first run movies in English.
