You'll have the chance to ski with Chemmy Alcott and Dougie Crawford, as well as Henry Druce, editor of the Telegraph Ski and Snowboard section. They'll be on hand to offer advice throughout the week, regardless of your experience, and pride themselves on positive coaching techniques to get the best out of all participants. Chemmy will also give a talk about her racing career and host a Q&A session on one evening.
Explore Val d'Isere
We've chosen Val d'Isere for it's enormous variety of pistes and excellent snow record late in the season. Often refered to as "skiing's peak of perfection" the combination of beautiful Alpine architecture, electric apres-ski and a world-class lift infrastructure make this resort hard to beat.
