Wasteland are working with us to provide the best Winter Trip of your life.
Wasteland Ski is the longest standing student tour operator in the UK. They started over 20 years ago back when mobiles were the future and people only paid by cheque. From these humble beginnings they have built not only a tour operator but have helped to build an industry. The concept of large group trips was something they were first to take on, and from there have been a series of industry firsts that have kept them at the top of the game.
With Watelands events portfolio growing year on year, projects such as Wasteland Takeover weeks and Rise Festival have been a huge success. The knowledge and experience gained through such projects has helped to expand the university trip experience to be more exciting than ever before!
This year Wasteland have partnered with UWE Snowsports and preparation is already well underway for the upcoming sellout Val Thorens trip in December.
"Needless to say we’re incredibly excited for the upcoming season and having not worked with UWE for a number of years, it’s great to be back. The committee have a solid plan with some great ideas and we’re here to help them execute what is sure to be the best trip yet! To see what we’ve been up to in recent seasons head to www.wastelandski.com/promotional-video."

After 2 seasons as a ski instructor in the alps, our president, Red Fox, know that the only good place to get ski resort weather and a snow forecast is www.snow-forecast.com . The website has pretty much every resort you can imagine and can show you what the weather and snowfall is going to be like at different heights on the mountian.
Red Fox says: "When I was instructing I had snow-forecast and the local piste status websites bookmarked on my phone and every morning I would wake up and check the lifts and the weather to see where I was going to ski and how many layers I would need to wear."
Snow-Forecast provide mountain weather maps showing a vast range of ski resort data ranging from current conditions, future weather and historical data. In addition to our popular static weather maps, they also provide smart interactive maps that allow you find the best snow conditions and skiing weather.
