We like to make sure you are fully equipt for the week by arming you with all destination specific particulars, including everything from weather and time zones to safety tips and other costs to expect during the week.

Expect temperatures between -5°C and 11°C (32°F - 52°F).

Time Zone

In winter, the France is 1 hour ahead of GMT (GMT+1)

Personal Safety

All The Ski Week events are extremely safe. However, as you will find yourselves in unfamiliar surroundings, we recommend that you follow some basic precautions. We’ll lay it out simple for you:

  • Lock your hotel room and lockers when you leave and store expensive possessions, travel documents, and extra cash in a hidden spot.
  • Stay with other TSW guests and staff whenever possible.
  • Avoid parties and venues not on the itinerary or recommended by TSW.
  • Walking home in the cold alone is not not a good idea. No one wants to leave a party alone, so buddy up some friends to accompany you home.
  • Wear proper gear both on and off the mountains. Refer to our Essentials Packing List for the full list of everything you will need!

Onsite, The Ski Week has the means to contact authorities when necessary. In the event of an emergency, please find a crew member immediately.

The emergency number in the France is 112. 


The plugs primarily used in France have two round pins operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz. If you are travelling from North America, the UK, Australia or South America; you may need an adaptor to fit the European electrical receptacles. You may also need a converter to change the voltage from from your country’s standard to 230 volts.

Local Currency

The local currency is Euro. Foreign currency isn’t accepted.

Additional Costs

You will have to cover your own food and drinks throughout the week. Expect to pay €15-20 for lunch, €20-30 for dinner and €5 for a beer. Transfer €80 and ski/board rental €150-200 is possible to add as well.

Personal Travel Insurance

By booking with us, you are not covered by a personal travel insurance policy. It is your responsibility to have personal travel insurance for the duration of your trip and that it covers activities such as skiing. We highly recommend that all guests purchase such a policy. Safety first, folks.
