8-11/11 cross country ski trip to Oberhof ski hall

UPDATE 26/09/18:  Trip full

For the past seven years the Club has run this early season cross country ski training trip to Oberhof Ski Hall for members and it has grown in popularity.  We keep the group to a manageable size so everyone gets the coaching they expect from Peter Moysey.

The trip is not suitable for beginners - you should be at least a competent classic skier and have already learnt the basics of skating.

Travel arrangements

Book your own flights to arrive Frankfurt by 1300 local time on 8/11 then travel by minibus to Oberhof  which takes approx. 3 hours. 

From Heathrow we suggest using Lufthansa - there is still no charge for skis and the group can get together early there.
Return flights should be booked back from Frankfurt not before 1800 local time.

Accommodation

Pension Waldschlosschen - single room 62 euros per night and a double 50 euros per night on half board (plus 2 euros per day tourist tax). Final room details need to be confirmed four weeks before arrival.

The skiing

2 hour sessions in the Ski Hall starting on arrival on Thursday evening, followed by 2 x 2 hours sessions Friday & Saturday and a 2 hour session  on Sunday morning before departing Oberhof for return flights from Frankfurt not before 1800 local time.

The skiing sessions will alternate between skate & classic and generally start with a skating session on Thursday evening.

Other costs:

10 hour ski pass approximately 80 euros.

Deposit of £140 payable by cheque only to Claire Attridge by end September 2018 latest.
