ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
During this trip, you will spend six mornings with top-level tuition from Ski Connections instructors. This course is aimed at Intermediate (Silver) and Advanced (Purple) off piste skiers who are ready for a challenge and wanting to expand their skiing horizons! If you are unsure of your ski 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.
A good level of fitness is important, as the focus of the course is freestyle in its various forms (jumping with tricks such as grabs and spins, skiing backwards and rail riding) alongside some off piste skiing outside of the terrain park – especially after fresh snowfall! This course is a great and safe way for skiers to get into or improve their freestyle skills under the expert guidance of top level freestyle coaches. By the end of the week skiers will look at the mountains through new eyes, with the slopes becoming one big terrain park!
You’ll spend 7 nights at the 3* Hotel Mont Thabor, on a half board basis. This chalet style hotel is located 60m from the ski lift Aravet, with direct access to Serre Chevalier. Staying in twin share rooms, you’ll be able to relax after a day on the mountain in the indoor Spa, with treatments available when booked in advance.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfers. The flights are with British Airways and depart from London Gatwick Airport South Terminal to Grenoble. Ski carriage is limited and can be pre-booked through the Freshtracks office. Your Ski Club Rep will coordinate the coach transfer from the airport, so please look out for them in the main arrivals hall – they will be wearing their blue Ski Club jacket. Transfers to and from resort will take approximately two and a half hours.
If these travel arrangements are not convenient, you may be eligible to organise your own travel and receive a nominal discount from the holiday cost. Furthermore, if you can find alternative flights that coincide with our flight times then you can meet the group at the airport and take our transfer to resort. Please contact the Freshtracks office on 020 8410 2022 in order to discuss this further.
Often considered a hidden gem of the southern French Alps, Serre Chevalier is comprised of four villages sharing a huge 250km of high quality, varied terrain; offering a wonderful alternative for its northerly neighbours. You’ll find cruising forests, good high-speed trails and fantastic slopes to test our skills on the mountain. Serre Chevalier is a playground for both freeride and freestyle skiers with some fantastic natural terrain features such as natural half pipes, cliffs and drop offs. For more information on Serre Chevalier, please visit our Serre Chevalier Resort Page.
If you need to hire equipment there is a Skiset discount available via the Ski Club website. The closet shop to the hotel is Régis Sports 1 Chantemerle, where a discount of up to 30% is available.
