Following on from the success of the 2012-13 season, we are very excited to be able to offer a fantastic chalet holiday in not one, but two of our very own chalets. The two chalets sit side by side and offer the same excellent level of comfort. We have recruited experienced staff who will serve delicious food and provide first-class customer service throughout your stay. There's even a sauna available, giving you the chance to relax after a hard day of off-piste skiing. Historically, our off piste weeks in Flaine have been some of the most popular in our programme and we hope that this will continue as they really offer something special.
The chalets are almost identical in layout - take a look at the floor plan.
A typical day
…will start with a hearty breakfast – eggs, bread and jams, fruit and yoghurt, porridge and cereal – the choice is yours! You’ll speed off to the slopes for a prompt 9.15 start – a few minutes later than last year to allow the option of skiing down from Le Hameau to the meeting point. Alternatively you can take the public bus – the stop is just a 2 minute walk from the chalet. The instructor team will then put you through your paces in the off piste for the whole day - with a stop for lunch of course. At the end of the ski day you can either stop for an après drink or two or head back to the chalet for a mug of tea and slice of cake. Then start the evening with an aperitif and a catch up of the days events before a delicious 4 course dinner.

Flaine is a purpose-built resort and it was built for a reason - to access some of the best terrain Europe has to offer. The wide-open faces provide a variety of off-piste skiing for all levels of ability. It’s perfect for those who are just learning to ski off-piste, and for skiers who wish to improve on their limited experience - as, unlike other resorts, the off-piste is easily accessible by the lift system. The endless bowls and open powder fields are perfect for steadily improving your technique. And it wasn’t just the landscape that led to Flaine being built – the snow is excellent every single winter! Flaine receives generous snowfall and thanks to its predominantly north-facing runs, the snow sticks around.
What's the point in having a resort with brilliant terrain and consistently excellent snowfall if you don’t know what to do with it? That’s where our team of dedicated instructors come in - Yann, Diane and the team are back again this year to show you the ropes. This group of off-piste instructors have continued to receive such excellent feedback that we've decided to hog them for the whole winter. Head instructor, Yann, has been working with us for 16 years and continues to wow newcomers and impress members who chose to come back year after year. The team's aim is to make sure you get the most out of your week and they will guarantee that you improve your off-piste technique.
Your Ski Club Leader will be on hand to help with any queries and will also be out on the slopes with you. They will be the ones who pick you up from the airport, and the ones who get you back on your feet after a powdery tumble! Please do let them know if you need of anything during your stay, or if you have any feedback about your holiday.
*Included in the price – Set transfer from Geneva airport, seven night's chalet board accommodation, twin share, five days instruction, transceiver and Ski Club Leader.
“Yann is just THE best mountain guide/instructor. We love the transformation our skiing has undergone thanks to his style and ability to search out untracked powder.” Claire Rimmer, Families New Year
“Diane was excellent. She managed to get me to understand what I’d been doing wrong for years in the space of about 30 minutes! I can’t believe I improved so much and my confidence soared. I definitely want to ski with her again – I still have so much to learn”. Osla Allen, PE Adventurous Powder 1
“Fantastic holiday. Quality of hospitality and food provided by chalet hosts was excellent. Holiday was fun from start to finish”.
Lesley Wigham, Silver Powder Performance
