Learn To Ski Week
21 MARCH 2020 - CHALET DES NEIGES
We understand that the prospect of a first ski holiday can be daunting so we have put together an amazing value package to help make things as easy as possible for you.
The Learn to Ski Week is primarily for complete beginners or people who have very limited experience. Partners and friends whose level of skiing proficiency is beyond beginner level are more than welcome on this holiday, but the package is exclusively available to guests learning to ski.
Your Learn To Ski package incorporates huge saving while providing the very best instruction right from the chalet! Book any room you like and just add the pack for £449. To book the various elements independently would cost over 50% more!
The package includes:
- All the skiing equipment you need: boots, skis, poles and helmet. The ski shop where your equipment will be expertly fitted is just 100m from our chalet too.
- A six-day ski pass for the whole Three Valleys area so you can venture into Meribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens as you progress through the week.
- Beginner ski lessons from a qualified local instructor working exclusively with Richmond guests so you will be learning alongside your fellow holidaymakers. Lessons will be morning and afternoon on day one, then each morning for the rest of the week. You will have time in the afternoons to practise your skiing, take a long lunch in a mountain restaurant, explore the local area or simply relax in the sauna or hot tub!
- Private transfers to lesson locations. Then, as you become more proficient, you can ski from right outside the chalet (this is often at the end of your first day!)
In addition, you will, of course, benefit from the comfortable accommodation with its stunning views, delicious food, the friendly and welcoming Richmond atmosphere and the services of our ministry and staff teams. A dedicated member of the Richmond ski team will be on hand to lead the Learn to Ski week, ensuring everything runs as smoothly as possible.
March is generally a very pleasant time to learn to ski, with warmer temperatures and longer days to enjoy the spectacular mountain scenery.
Your Learn to Ski Week Leader
For each of our Learn To Ski Week, a professional instructor from Oxygene will be providing the ski tuition and guiding around the Three Valleys. The Oxygene ski school is a family-run traditional French ski school, with a mission to help improve the skiing for everyone – all abilities and all ages!
In addition to our dedicated ski instructor for the week, Richmond’s own Sheridan Brown will be attending. He will lead review sessions and share some evening tips to help you get the most of your week.
