ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
This fantastic four day weekend is ideal for learning the basics of ski touring from local mountain guides plus mountain awareness, and off piste technique. You even get to spend the last night in a hut to get the full taster experience and to see whether more advanced and longer tours are for you.
This weekend is based at the simple, centrally located Le Hotel Regina, 2*. There is a variety of excellent restaurants close by to dine out in the evening. You’ll be staying in twin share accommodation with B&B for 3 nights. The mountain hut will be determined by the guide closer to the time, pending conditions, and if you are given the go ahead there will be half board catering provided.
Travel is not included. We recommend travelling from Geneva airport as it has quick and easy access - give us a call on 020 8410 2022 if you need advice on flights and transfers.
The village of St Gervais has a laid back, peaceful centre with a historic background and a spa that dates back to Roman times. There is a good choice of hotels, restaurants, shops, cosy bars and a thermal bath. A 20-person gondola provides fast access from the village centre to Le Bettex, from where you can start skiing or take another gondola to Mont d’Arbois. The Evasion Mont Blanc lift pass gives access to six different ski areas, including Megeve and Combloux, where you can expect incredible views over Mont Blanc and long tree runs whilst exploring the further reaches of the ski area. For further information see our St Gervais Resort Guide.
