As a school we have been on numerous trips with TM ski. I have found them to be professional in their approach and reliable. We have been to the same high class hotel, run by a very friendly Italian family, over the last 5 years. The food has been excellent. We have skiied with both Italian ski school and with TM ski staff and have never been disappointed with either.
I know as the Party Leader that what I ask for and what we pay for is what we get as a school, no hidden cost’s. The student’s that have been on trips organised by TM ski have enjoyed themselves and will remember their experiences for the rest of their lives.

I have travelled to Passo Tonale four times with my school now. We have returned to the same resort and hotel, not only because we know it, but because of the service provided by TM Ski. Firstly, the resort is fantastic for schools, beginners and more advanced skiers. Secondly, the service and organisation of the company leaves you free form hassle and little to worry about.
From organising the trip at school, the company takes the weight off me by completing all admin work, I just have to chase the students for their forms. If required, they attend the school information evening to give out all information to parents required. Nearer the time, all the itinerary information is in my hands with me knowing all times and plans for the holiday (which have been discussed prior). All travel and apre-ski is arranged before we head out, and lift passes are at the hotel ready for our first day skiing (which the Guide organises for you). The Guides used have great knowledge of the resort and locations and organisation of activities. Should there be any issue’s or emergencies while on the slopes, all provisions are made to support staff and the school.
I look forward to travelling with TM Ski again next year, and in the future trying out new resorts which are on offer.
City of Ely Community College
I first travelled with TM in February 2007 to Temu, Italy. We had a fantastic trip and their personal service and attention to detail is second to none. We were in regular touch with the director of the company and he provided fantastic in-resort support and we were able to tailor our apres-ski activities to suit our group. The fact that they offer 6 full hours a day on the slopes with qualified instructors as part of the package is unique in my experience and the children get the maximum opportunity to improve their skiing and boarding in a safe and secure environment whilst being challenged and stretched.
No problem is insurmountable and TM will always consult with the Party Leader to find out what is best for their group. Since going with TM, I have moved schools twice for promotions and both schools have stayed with TM of their own volition. That speaks for itself. School ski trips are about the fabulous and unforgettable experience that the children have and TM provide that without any doubt!
Chris Hollingworth – Notre Dame High School
Woodhey High School has used TM Ski and Travel, every year since its inception in 2004, visiting several Italian resorts which Marcus has to offer. Over that time we have had many wonderful, fun-packed holidays but always seem to gravitate back to Tonale, which, for a school trip, has so much to offer. A quiet resort with guaranteed snow, catering for a wide variety of abilities and close to excellent medical facilities has to feature high on any party leader’s agenda.
Another huge bonus is TM’s commitment to total on-slope supervision – with 6 hours of ski/boarding instruction, pupils certainly get their money’s worth plus they are worn out at the end of a busy day; tired pupils = happy staff!! This coupled with the choice of comfortable and extremely friendly hotels provide all the ingredients for a successful trip Après ski (including ice skating, bum-boarding, presentation evening and even the inevitable disco!) is also very well organised but the highlight for my pupils has always been the excellent pizza evenings in Ponte de Legno.
Support in resort, particularly when we have had injuries, has been second to none – with a car/driver at your disposal and if you’re lucky even Marcus there to practise his Italian and translate for you!!
What sets TM apart from many other larger companies, for me, is the personal touch. The ability to contact Marcus 24/7 with any queries, worries etc has been invaluable.
Plans are now well under way for February 2012 when we are looking forward to another enjoyable week in Tonale.

Thank you very much!
