We provide high quality snow-sports tours and place the safety and wellbeing of our students and teachers at the centre of our planning. We surpass the minimum requirements and those used by traditional ski tour operators. This is explained in detail in the True North Travel Safety Management System summary. We understand that schools need to fully understand our safety policies and procedures before booking and we will work with you to ensure that all the information you require is made available.
