Am I good enough or am I too good?
Clients range in age from 16 to 75. This trip is for intermediate to advanced female skiers. You should be comfortable skiing black diamond runs in the ski area in any condition (crud, powder, ice, etc). It is very helpful to some backcountry or off-piste skiing experience, but it is not necessary. We will work on the skills needed to feel comfortable in this type of terrain. Our guides can provide plenty of challenges for even the most accomplished skiers.
You will ski with one guide and up to three other skiers whose ability and fitness is similar to yours. We keep the camp ratio low for safety and for your enjoyment of skiing with skiers of similar level.
It is recommended to fly into Geneva Airport (GVA). There are numerous transfer companies that offer direct transfers from the airport to Chamonix. Contact us if you want help with your travel details. We will provide all transportation during the camp.
