Snow Farm for Primary Schools

The Snow Farm is the perfect place for a fun school outing away from the ski lifts and crowds, as well as for high-quality physical and outdoor education. We have experienced ski instructors, a large fleet of kids’ rental equipment, the “Snow Fun Zone” for tubing and tobogganing, and two backcountry huts, all in a beautiful alpine environment. The Snow Farm is operated by the Pisa Alpine Charitable Trust and it is part of our mission to make our prices as affordable as possible for local schools.

It is our goal to give as many students as possible an enjoyable and educational experience on the snow.  We can work with individual schools to cater to your specific needs.  Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have, or for complete pricing information for school groups.
