Beginners and Improvers trips


“These trips are designed to provide a ready-made support group of new friends to learn with, so you don’t feel you are holding anyone back or have to listen to seasoned skiers bore on about going off-piste…By the fourth day I understood why people become addicted to ski holidays.” The Guardian reviewed us!

Learn to ski holiday, learn to snowboard holiday, improver skiing and improver snowboarding.

beginners ski week

We know that a skiing or snowboarding holiday can be a bit daunting for first-timers, so we put together a couple of special weeks for those who have never done it before, haven’t done it for a while, or just haven’t quite got the hang of it yet.

21 January 2017 and 18 March 2017

We run these weeks in Morzine, in the French Alps, which has beautiful scenery and a large range of wide open easy runs that are perfect for beginners – and if it turns out you’re a natural, there’s a vast area of more challenging pistes.

Everyone will be on a similar level, which makes for a great group atmosphere and you can compare your turns and snowplough technique over a well-deserved glass of vin chaud at the end of the day at our cosy mountain chalet, or in one of the town’s bars.

IMG_1379Most of our guests come on their own and it’s a great way to meet new people and learn an essential (well, we think so) new skill.

Beg, steal or borrow some snow gear (just contact us for advice if you need it), get yourself to Geneva airport and we’ll sort out everything else – lift pass, all equipment hire, lessons, as well as everything that is usually included in a h.o.f.n.a.r holiday.

A word of warning: you will become addicted to snow holidays!
