Learn to Ski Weekends and Learn to Snowboard Weekends
Ideal if you’re not sure if you’ll like it, although we know you will and want to come back for more.
Three days skiing or boarding with private lessons is the ideal way to start your career on the snow. Private lessons each day mean that you get personal attention and progress rapidly at your own pace. A long weekend also means you won’t get tired and so be able to squeeze every hour out of the liftpass.
See our learn to ski or learn to snowboard pages for details of what we can do to get you skiing. It can work out cheaper by the than going to your local Snowdome, and lets face it where would you rather spend your weekend – next to the Mxx or here in the French Alps?
Advanced Ski Weekends
Why not combine your short ski break with one of our advanced skiing options or an off piste tour. We offer a range of possibilities including:
- Learning to ski off piste group and private lessons
- Advanced off piste – brush up your technique with one of France’s top off piste skiers
- Couloirs and Steeps – not for the feint hearted!
- Back Country Skiing – ski touring to reach untouched snow and the best powder
- Private Guiding
- Ski and Snowboard Clinics

Minimum time off work
During your ski weekend you’ll want to maximise your time on the slopes and minimise hassle. Once you get to Geneva our professional and friendly team will meet your flight and transfer you direct to the chalet.
When you arrive or first thing in the morning we will take you to the ski shop and help you sort out ski and snowboard hire. Then we’ll give you your ski passes and away you go. If you’re really keen we should be able to get you on the slopes within 3 hours of landing at Geneva (even less if you bring your own skis and boots).
Our proximity to Geneva airport (50 minutes in our luxury minibus) means that you can leave work on Thursday evening and arrive in the resort in time to get a good nights sleep before hitting the slopes.
On your last day you can ski until the lifts close, shower and change back at the chalet and be at the airport in time to catch an evening flight home.
