ON SNOW EXPERIENCE

Starting on Sunday evening, the course consists of an unguided warm up day to find your ski legs and let you look at the conditions. The format for the following 3 days is morning classroom sessions followed by time on the mountain. The last 2 days will be full days out developing the practical decision-making tools that will help you find the best snow and ski it safely.

ACCOMMODATION

You'll get the chance to stay in our fantastic new chalet, located right at the foot of the new gondola heading up to the slopes of Flégère. Accommodation is provided on a chalet board basis, with delicious breakfasts, tasty afternoon teas and fantastic three course meals all included. The chalet staff have two nights off, giving you the chance to explore the excellent restaurants located throughout the valley.

TRAVEL

Travel is not included, please see the independent travel document for transfer details. We recommend traveling to Geneva as this is one of the closest airports. For further information and the itinerary please contact the Freshtrack team on 020 8410 2022.

RESORT

The Chamonix lift system consists of several distinct and very different ski areas high above a steep-sided valley where the town and its villages are located. From one day to the next you can explore the resort’s different ski areas: Brévent & Flégère, Les Grands Montets, Le Tour & Vallorcine (Domaine de Balme), L'Aiguille du Midi/La Vallée Blanche and Les Houches. And if that isn’t enough, the Chamonix MontBlanc lift pass extends over to Courmayeur and even Verbier!

Accessing all these different areas could prove a challenge if it wasn’t for our minibus which will ferry you around. Fortunately it means there is no need to check bus times and walk to and from stops and lifts - we’ll collect you from the chalet door and take you straight to whichever area you’re skiing that day! For more information on Chamonix, please visit the Chamonix Resort Page.

EQUIPMENT

The best shop to hire from is the Concept Pro Shop Chamonix, which is located behind the Aiguille du Midi. They offer a 10% discount to our members and have a great selection of equipment.
