We’ve got another legendary EC ski and snowboarding week lined up for you in 2018 for a great value price – book now to avoid disappointment!
This time we’ll be heading to the beautiful and traditional village of St Martin de Belleville, close to the immense Three Valleys ski area containing the resorts of Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Meribel, Courchevel and La Tania, with 600km of pisted runs, around 600km off-piste terrain and 200 ski lifts. Experience the delights of staying in our own chalet away from the crowds in a traditional Savoyard village combined with skiing on some of the best high-altitude slopes in the Alps.
- Itinerary -
On Saturday we’ll arrive at Geneva airport in the morning as a group where we’ll be greeted by the EC host and then take a private minibus transfer to the chalet direct (approximately 2.5 hours). In the afternoon we’ll collect and sort our ski or snowboard equipment from a local shop in the village, have dinner and get ourselves ready to get up early and explore!
Each day we’ll start with a hearty continental breakfast of fresh French bread, butter and preserves, cereals, yoghurts, porridge, soft boiled eggs, juice, tea and freshly brewed coffee. Then we’ll be transferred by minibus directly to the bottom of the gondola in St Martin so we won’t have to clump about in our boots!
After each full, exciting day exploring the endless possibilities of the world’s largest ski and snowboard area we can all meet up again at one of the village bars for a drink, then either get an early lift back to the chalet for freshly brewed tea or coffee and homemade cakes, or we can stay out for a bit longer in town before getting a later lift back in time for the evening meal – the choice is ours.
At dinner we’ll all sit round the table together enjoying a seasonal and fresh three-course meal with unlimited red, white & rose wine during dinner with coffee served afterwards. The chef has one night off during the week so we’ll also have the chance to sample some local cuisine in town. If we still have energy left after dinner we can head back to the local bars in St Martin or even the nightclubs in Les Menuires…
On our final day we'll check out of the chalet together, either going back to the airport directly or spending another half or even full day on the slopes if we like!
