Sharks Holiday 2020
After the success of the recent trip to Wengen that many of our members enjoyed it is time to look ahead to next year!
As many of you will be aware, the Sharks holiday is a family holiday that you book independently, but with the added bonus of sharing with holiday with other Sharks members and our very own Sharks Ski instructors offering ski tuition during the day!  
Next year the holiday will take place from Saturday 4th – Saturday 11th April 2020, in Champoluc, Italy.
Ski2 have put together a package for our members at the hotel Monte-Cervino, which is the hotel that we stayed in last year.
Members need to book the holiday directly through Ski2, not through Sharks Ski Club, and as such parents are responsible for their own children throughout the holiday.  Sharks Ski Club with offer ski tuition  during the day, provided by our own Sharks instructors who will act in loco parentis whilst the children are skiing in the Sharks groups.  More information regarding the cost of this tuition will follow.
The holiday is your chance to ski with other Sharks members and to have lots of fun in the hotel with your Sharks friends!
If you are interested see the information below from Ski2. 

Please do not leave it too late to book as we may have to share the hotel with other guests, and we really do not want to do that.  We would like to fill it with SHARKS.

Happy booking!
Sharks Committee
