Overview

France and Switzerland are home to the world’s biggest connected ski area with literally hundreds of kilometres of runs available for skiing or snowboarding. This means you can find new pistes to explore, without ever having to cover the same track twice. Here be able to look out and see nothing but over 3000 meter high peaks as far as the eye can see. It’s a view you won’t soon forget!






Sublime relief after battling overcrowded lifts

We always select a new location to explore, so even our returning guests won’t get bored during our annual ski trip to France or Switzerland that takes place at the beginning of each year. Besides the endless possibilities skiing on the pistes, you can also hit the snow freeride, instead of sticking to the marked tracks. It helps that we know countless hidden gems in the French Alps, so we don’t have to battle the overcrowded lifts of the most popular runs. We’ll make unforgettable memories on backcountry ski days in the untouched natural environment of the Alps, perhaps enjoying an afternoon tea break while relaxing on a wooden bridge atop an icy creek.






The Best for off-piste beginners

Heading ontop fresh snow off-piste or backcountry is a completely different experience to skiing or snowboarding on blue, red or black runs. Away from marked terrain, you need a different kind of skill-set. But once you’ve got the hang of it, you’ll always be hankering for this kind of off-the-beaten-track scene. During this trip, even beginner freeriders can get a hold of the basics. Don’t worry if you want to stick to the trails, though, the runs are great here, so even if you opt to stay on-piste you won’t get bored.






Foodie experiences, and après-ski fun

During the week of snow-sports, the greatest emphasis is on skiing and snowboarding, but we’ll also have plenty of time to enjoy après-ski in style. We’ll sample some of the best local produces from cheese-makers, enjoy a bottle or two of Kronenbourg, and discover some of the region’s best break-through French wines. Plus, after a long day of skiing we’ll take time to regenerate and rest our muscles in a hot sauna.

Q&A

HOW CAN I DECIDE IF MY SKIING SKILLS ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CAMP?

Since we are going every year to the biggest resorts in the world, everybody can find slopes suitable for their abilities.

WHAT WILL THE WEATHER BE LIKE, WHAT KIND OF CLOTHES SHOULD I TAKE?

We will stay on a mountain in winter time. Be prepared for everything between -25 - +10 degrees, from snow storms with strong wind to clear, sunny and mild weather. Lots of layers are always better than a super warm down jacket.

WHO WILL LEAD THE TOUR AND THE VARIOUS PROGRAMS?

In the first few days we explore the region, share experiences of the best terrains and lines in the evening next to a beer and we make plans for the next days. If needed you can form a group and hire an instructor or a free ride guide (not included in the price). If you're thinking about it, please let us know before the trip.

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT WILL I NEED?

Ski or snowboard equipment and appropriate ski clothing. Renting of the equipment is solvable in each resorts.

HOW MUCH POCKET MONEY WILL I NEED?

The accommodation is always high standard apartments with fully equipped kitchen, therefore your spending mostly depends on how much you use your kitchen and how often do you go to restaurants. Very low budget case: 150 EUR, but with an excessive visit of mountain restaurants and bars it can climb up to 500 EUR or even more.

WHAT KIND OF INSURANCE SHOULD I TAKE OUT?

If you're planning to go off-piste to ski or snowboard, you should choose an insurance which expands for these activities. You should be aware that the blue EU health insurance card and the insurance of your bank card is not valid in most cases.

IS IT A PROBLEM IF I WANT TO COME ALONE?

Not at all. Smallest apartments have usually 4 beds, so it's a perfect opportunity to get to know new mountain lover friends.

WHAT ABOUT FOOD?

Every apartment has Fully equipped kitchen, in the supermarket you can find all kind of fresh, healthy and gourmet delicacies of the French cuisine (eg.: cheeses, wines, foie gras).
