We ski with you
Ski hosting on 5 mornings during the week
For any guest of any age, providing they can ski a blue run well and a red run comfortably. Remember, we do not instruct or teach at all, we just ski with you to give you the best day. We will usually have two groups, and the speed of the group will be up to the group itself, as our staff will go at a pace that is comfortable and safe for everybody.
Where do we go?
As a warm-up, we will take you down a pleasant easy open run, so all can warm up and reassure themselves that they can indeed ski! Sometimes we do take a guest straight to the ski school, as our priority is our guests’ safety. We believe the condition of the run and the snow is as important as the angle of the slope!
How long are we with you for?
Certainly up until lunchtime, and if a guest would like to return to the village with our member of staff then they are welcome to. If you can persuade our host to stay out and ski with you then that is up to them.
Do we stop?
Yes we do, it's not a race when we are with you. Our plan for the day includes stopping for a mid-morning drink and taking you to a recommended lunch stop. We will do our best to reserve tables and choose both good value and good food. You can usually swap ski group at the mid-morning stop if you would like to.
Do we give advice?
No! We are pleased to point our various runs and exciting terrain for the heroes, and we can tell about interesting itinerary runs that a ski instructor can take you on, but we do not teach or instruct at all.
Something a little more challenging
Most resorts have itinerary runs - These are runs that are not pisted, but are patrolled and declared open and safe by the mountain management. Itinerary runs are often of great quality and the ski host will happily show these routes to the guests, and if requested they may also ski down behind you to make sure you are all safe.
However, please be aware that these runs are not part of our ski hosting programme. Additionally, our ski hosts will know our resorts well, so they can point out more challenging terrain that is more suitable for exploring with a mountain guide or an instructor.
