Back to Ski School

Fri August 31, 2018

We say ski school, you think groups of French children swarming around the lifts, falling over and generally causing havoc. Think again because ski schools have branched out massively and now offer a huge variety of classes to suit all levels of skiers. Even advanced skiers can benefit hugely from a pair of eyes on the ground to point out bad habits which you might have picked up over the years.

Here’s our run down of the most exciting classes to discover this season from our ski school partners in France and Austria.

Avoriaz Alpine Ski School – Ladies’ Backcountry Clinic

No boys allowed in this exclusive group, led by British Freeride coach Amy Marwick with the aim to introduce backcountry skiing (off-piste to you and I) in a friendly and welcoming environment. Amy will cover the basic backcountry skillset including choosing an appropriate line, lining up natural features and, of course, using avalanche safety kit effectively and efficiently.

The course is scheduled to run from 28 – 30 January. Look at Chalet Ossetra and Penthouse 1 for luxury accommodation.

Fly from Birmingham to Geneva next winter

Wed May 23, 2018

We pride ourselves on listening to our guests and evolving every day. So, after many requests last winter, we’re thrilled to announce we will be offering a charter flight from Birmingham to Geneva for the coming season.

Provided by Jet2, the flight will serve the resorts of Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz, La Plagne and Val d’Isere for just a small supplement of £35pp.

We do only have an allocation of 20 seats each week, so if you’re looking for the convenience of flying from your local airport we advise booking early to secure a seat.

The return of January skiing (in April!)

Fri April 06, 2018

If you’re thinking that skiing in April is a lost cause, you couldn’t be further from the truth! I know we’re all fed up with the cold spell we’ve been experiencing here in the UK, but it’s done wonders for our ski resorts. Weather reports are comparable with those of January and even the lower resorts are still providing fantastic conditions.

Check out some of these snaps from the alps this week.

Four new Avoriaz chalets

Wed February 28, 2018

The stars align...

Without wishing to appear too evangelical about it, every now and again the stars seem to align and extraordinary opportunities drop into your lap, or as Arnold Palmer put it (and many more since), its amazing how lucky I get the harder I train.

Anyway, to get to the point, through a chance lunch and a random overheard comment, we became owners of two incredible building plots in the very centre of Avoriaz. When I say centre, I really mean better than that, away from the noise and bustle of the core, and perfectly placed on the circumference for breathtaking panorama of the surrounding peaks. When the pistes empty at 5pm you feel privileged to soak up the sublime and slightly eerie wilderness of snow capped mountains all to yourself. When the lifts start to turn in the morning and your landscape fills with skiers you almost begrudge them your calm.
