ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
You will spend five full days skiing with local instructors to help improve your on piste skills. You will be split into groups of 7/8 based on your ski profile. This trip is aimed at Intermediate (Red) to Advanced (Purple) on piste skiers. 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.
You will be staying in a twin share room at the family run Hotel le Sherpa (3*) allowing you to ski right to your front door. On your return, you can choose to try out the new 'cosmic' sauna, a panoramic outdoor sauna on the terrace of the hotel with direct views of the slopes. The holiday is on a half board basis so you can choose from a varied breakfast buffet each morning and dinner will be traditional French cuisine.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfer. The flights are with Swiss and depart from London Heathrow Airport Terminal 2. Ski Carriage is free of charge and does not need to be pre-booked. Your Ski Club Rep will coordinate the coach transfer from Geneva 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 arrangements are not convenient you may be eligible to organise your own travel and receive a nominal discount from the holiday cost. If you can find alternative flights that coincide with our flight times then you may be able to meet the group at Geneva airport and take our transfers to resort. Please contact the Freshtracks office on 020 8410 2022 in order to discuss this further.
