ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
After a day getting your ski legs ready, you’ll then spend five full days skiing with mountain guides who will pick the best ski area for the snow and weather conditions each morning. It could be a trip through the Mont Blanc tunnel to exhilarating itineraries in Courmayeur or more locally dramatic glacial runs on the Grands Montets.
Groups will be organised based on ski level, with this trip aimed at Advanced (Purple) and Expert (Gold) off piste skiers. 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.
You’ll get the chance to stay in our fantastic new chalet on this trip, 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 is not included on this holiday, in order to allow you to choose the most convenient travel arrangements. Please note that due to strict changeover times for the chalet staff, on your arrival day you will not have access to the chalet until 16:00, and on your departure day you must leave by 10:00.
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 five different ski areas. And if that isn’t enough, the Chamonix Mont Blanc 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!

If you require ski hire, we recommend 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.
