This holiday includes both your flights and transfers. The flights are with British Airways departing from London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5. Ski carriage is payable at the airport only and cannot be pre-booked. Your Ski Club Rep will coordinate the coach transfer from Milan Linate airport, so please look out for them in the main arrivals hall; they will be wearing their blue Ski Club jacket. The transfer will take roughly two hours and forty-five minutes.
If these arrangements are not convenient you may be eligible to organise your own travel and receive a nominal discount from the holiday cost. If you can find alternative flights that coincide with our flight times then it may be possible to meet the group at Milan Linate airport and take our transfers to resort. Please contact the Freshtracks office on 020 8410 2022 in order to discuss this further.

The main slopes are a 15-minute walk from the centre, where a gondola goes to the hub at Bormio 2000. For more information on Bormio, please visit the Bormio Resort Guide.
