Chamonix is one of the world’s most famous off piste destinations and rightly so. The scope and variety of terrain is as awe inspiring as the dramatic landscape. This off piste week is designed for strong intermediate and advanced skiers looking to improve their skills across all terrain and get plenty of miles in under their feet. You should expect this week to be spent mainly off piste and will experience different areas in the Chamonix valley from the Grands Montet to Courmayeur - and conditions permitting, experiencing some of Chamonix's iconic runs such as the Vallee Blanche.
Holiday price includes: 7 nights chalet board, chalet accommodation, twin share, 6 days with instructors, Ski Club Leader, private minibus
Lift price information: Eary bird offer! Book your pass by November for 25% off! £190 - adult 6 day MBU.

on snow experience

You will spend all 6 days on snow with instructors and/or mountain guides. The content of the week will be adapted to the needs of the group by local expert Rachel Kerr but you will ski lots of varied off piste terrain across different areas within the Chamonix valley.


Seven nights chalet board in Ski Club's own Chalet Shiraz. Chalet board is breakfast, afternoon tea and a three course evening meal with wine on six nights. On the chalet host night off, the Ski Club Leader will organise a meal out for the group - payable locally. Chalet Shiraz is a comfortable seven bed chalet based in Les Houches where you can expect a warm welcome, great food and post ski relaxation in the sauna and hot tub. For more information about Chalet Shiraz, please click here.


The ski areas of Chamonix and are spread out and the Mont Blanc Unlimited liftpass extends from Chamonix valley over to Verbier in Switzerland and Courmayer in Italy. No matter the destination of the day, it will start and finish at Chalet Shiraz by hopping in the Ski Club minibus -driven by the Ski Club Leader. Journey times could be 5 minutes to Les Houches, 15 to Les Grands Montets or 45 over to Courmayeur so you need to be prepared to travel. We cost in one trip through the Mont Blanc tunnel to Courmayeur each week then if you head over there a second or third time the leader will ask for a contribution from everyone to cover the Mont Blanc tunnel pass and fuel.


There are no flights or transfers included in this holiday. Geneva airport is the closest airport to Chamonix and you can book very reasonably priced shared transfers with Mountain Drops Offs & Ski Lifts. We do ask that you arrive at the chalet no earlier than 4.30pm on arrival and depart no later than 9.30am on the deaprture day. This is to give the chalet team enough time to clean and prepare the chalet for the new arrivals. During those hours you will have no access to the chalet but will be able to drop your bags in the boot room. The chalet is a good 15 minute walk from the centre of Les Houches (though there is a bus stop at the bottom of the road under 5 minutes walk away) so if you arrive early please make sure you have practical shoes/clothing for a walk.

Ski Hire

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 array of equipment. You will find cheaper alternatives with SkiSet and Interski in Les Houches and Chamonix however we have found the equipement and service in concept Pro to be excellent. The Ski Club leader will be able to run you to the shop on Saturday evening.

Lift Pass

We recommend the Mont Blanc Unlimited lift pass for our holidays which covers not only the entire Chamonix valley but also Courmayeur, Verbier, St Gervais and Megeve ski areas. You can purchase this at time of booking or up to 5 days before departure with the Freshtracks team on 020 8410 2022.

Prices: 6 day Mont Blanc Unlimited £255 (15-64 yrs) or £215 (65-79 yrs).
