Hit the slopes with Craic'n'Cr­ash Adventure Weekend

Our Craic'n'Crash team have put together a great weekend for those who love the idea of skiing down slopes as much as hiking up them!

This weekend away is open to everyone interested in learning to ski. Particularly for those who are beginners, and for those who want to practice their skills and escape to the mountains - just generally having a laugh. We'el be staying at our state of the art Knockree Hostel located right on the Wicklow Way!

Arrive at Knockree on the Friday evening to some light snacks and some Ice breaker games to get the craic flowing!

On the Saturday morning after a refreshing breakfast at the hostel to make sure your properly fuelled, we'll head out to Ireland's only Ski Club in Kilternan

The ski club has four ski slopes: a main slope (180 meters long), an intermediate slope (130 meters long) and two nursery slopes.

We'll have a 1 & 1/2 hour group lesson on the basics of skiing and get some practice runs on the slope once everyone is confident enough.

On Saturday evening we return to the warmth of Knockree Hostel where we will have dinner and put up the feet for a while, before taking off up a slope of a different kind!

Saturday night will see us go on our first night hike with Craic'n'Crash as Oisin and Maria bring us on an adventure into the dark wilderness of Co. Wicklow (bring a torch for this one)

That night upon return the fire will be blazing and it's time to put the feet up and relax with some hot chocolate or some brews, so bring your own beer!

On Sunday morning we will be cooking a much needed breakfast for everyone before they head home. There will also be the option of a morning hike after breakfast for those who feel like shaking the dust off from the night before!

The cost of the weekend is 70 euro pp. This includes 2 nights stay in Knockree, Ski Hire, Lessons + Admission to slopes, 2 guided Hikes and All Meals (2 Breakfast, 2 Lunch, 2 Dinners). A Bargain!!
