    Does Oxford have a ski/boarding society and does it arrange a trip in the Winter vacation?

    If so, has anyone ever been on one of the trips?

    I'm just curious to find out before I book my holidays for this winter .

    Yes, it does. There's a joint Varsity trip with Cambridge for a fortnight every December.

    Is it possible for freshers to go on the Varsity trip, or do the arrangements begin before they arrive?

    Several colleges do their own too. They're generally not quite as cheap as varsity, but they're close to it, and you get to go with an entire group of people that you know!

    yeah don't miss out! I did this year and it sucked seeing all these facebook pictures appearing on my feed after i'd spent the week doing absolutely nothing at home.

    In that case, I've got a lot of begging to do.
