These short off piste ski trips are designed for good skiers with a good basic technique in parallel skiing and some off piste experience. In four days we discover the three countries area around the Mont Blanc massif. The big resorts are basically left, Secret Ski Spots are our speciality and are often wonderfully peaceful on weekdays. These are places which would quickly become bored if you would stay there a whole week, but thanks to the central location of our Bekker Mountain Chalet we have the luxury to explore every day a different area. And with a little bit of luck we have such a resort after a big dump almost to ourselves.
You will stay at the Bekker Chalet, our own ski lodge with spa facilities which is located just outside the Chamonix Valley only a few steps away from the ski resorts at the foot of Mont Blanc and Chamonix. After a hearty breakfast with freshly baked bread and fresh fruit served by Ilse, our 4x4 minivan is ready to roll and take you to one of the beautiful resorts in this world reknowed area. In the evening you can relax in front of the stove and enjoy a glass of good wine, good food (sometimes at home, served by Ilse, and sometimes in a restaurant within walking distance - always included in the price) and heat up in the sauna or the wood-fired hot tub on the terrace. The chalet features TV and everywhere free, fast WiFi. Coffee and tea are always included for free during your stay. You'll stay in comfortable 2-4 person rooms (3 rooms for up to 7 participants, one double room with private shower / toilet. Those who book first are first served!).
The program starts on Sunday. On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday you'll be outside with your IFMGA certified mountain guide / skiguide. End of the program Thursday in the early afternoon, whereafter you still have time to travel home. The possibility exists, upon availability at the Bekker Chalet, to book extra nights for € 65 per person including half board.
We recommend that you use your own comfortable ski boots during this program. In terms skis we recommend to choose for wider freerideski's (can be rented from our own depot). All avalanche materials (avalanche beacon, shovel and probe) including ABS avalanche airbag are included.
