Tickets for this year’s Varsity ski trip sold out in a record-breaking thirty hours last week. Students snapped up all 2500 tickets in just under two days, compared to ten days last year.

Sam Kirsop, President of Varsity 2010 said, “We’ve been working really hard to ensure that this year is the best Varsity Trip experience yet. We can’t wait to show them what’s in store for December.”

The quick sales have left hundreds of students disappointed and sparked criticism from freshers.

One Brasenose first year who missed out said, “It was sold out before freshers even knew it existed. I’d have loved to go but I didn’t want to sign up before I’d made enough friends to go with.”

1300 Oxford students and 1200 Cambridge students will hit the slopes in Val Thorens this December.
