ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
You’ll start the week with a social skiing day where you can get your ski legs working again and make sure you’re ready for the days ahead. You’ll then spend five full days with the instructors developing your skills and confidence moving to more and more challenging terrain and slopes as you progress. For any questions you have about your stance, balance and general skillset the team are there to answer. This is a very rewarding and exciting trip that will see you shooting through tree runs, bowling through couloirs and flying down open powder fields.
We would expect two or three groups on this holiday and you will be split into groups based on off piste ability and fitness. Groups will be organised based on ski level and this is an Advanced (Purple) and Expert (Gold) off piste holiday. If you are unsure of your level please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week you will receive an updated grading from your Instructor or Ski Club Rep.
At the heart of the Grand Massif, Flaine has fantastic, vast and varied terrain for skiers of all levels. As a resort built because of its majestic mountains and generous dumps of snow, Flaine benefits from one of the best snowfalls across the Alps, with an average of almost six metres a year. With its runs being predominantly north-facing, the resort is renowned for maintaining fantastic snow throughout the season.
The chalets are based up in the colourful Scandinavian-style development, Les Chalets du Hameau, a few minutes drive from the main resort. In Hameau there is a bar/restaurant L'Ancolie which also has a small shop with some local products. There is a free transport to and from the main resort until midnight and in good conditions you can also ski down to the meeting point in the mornings.
