Each year a group of COPSErs head to the slopes for a week of skiing and winter fun. We try and visit a different resort each year and after more than 20 years of ski trips, we have visited a lot of them.

Everyone is welcome from beginners to more advanced, nervous to fearless.

Ski Week 2020

Zell am See, 8 February to 13 February 2020

Sensational views, glacier skiing and a buzzing resort atmosphere make Zell am See a year-round favourite.  Ski-in, ski-out of the hotel, with a 3 minutes' walk to a gondola that whisks you up the Schmittenhöhe, where you’ll find wide, scenic pistes, a variety of different skiing and plenty of mountain huts.
During the height of winter the lake often freezes over, enabling you to walk from one side to the other – and even try some curling or skating too. If you feel like taking a break from skiing you can try plenty of activities including snowshoeing, cross-country and Nordic walking.
