Vallée Blanche Expedition

The Vallée Blanche offers an unforgettable run in the heart of one of the greatest high mountain panoramas in the entire world. It is one of the world’s best off-piste descents, going through incredible sceneries of cascading glaciers and towering peaks of the Mont Blanc Massif. This magnificent adventure is accessible to most intermediate skiers and we guarantee that you will have an amazing journey into the largest glaciated domain in the Alps. However, it is not a piste and you definitely need a guide to negotiate your way onto and down the glacier.

Cost: From €155

Other details: Includes extended mountain pass, guide and can choose to include an off piste clinic before. More information about this option.

Pond Skim

There is 15 metres of crystal clear water in between you and victory, but standing in your way are 3x judges, the laws of physics, and maybe that beer you had over lunch. Legendary status is up for grabs on the podium, but only guts will win you glory in the ultimate challenge of skill, style, and showmanship. Can you ski across the pond?


Après-Pond Skim

What's better to do after crossing (or falling in) that cold pond than a proper Après-ski. Here everyone's a winner! Feel the vibe and join the flow on the dancefloor/in the snow.

Pool Hangs

A heated pool surrounded by an incredible 360 mountain backdrop, we have to make the most of this! Join us to unwind after a big day on the mountain, and what better way to get geared up for the evening ahead of…? Grab your speaker, your floaty and a cold one, and meet us pool-side.

 

Onsite Themes

80s Après-ski: For Après-ski on Monday

Let's go back to the days of metal bands and big hair, grab some leg warmers, muscle shirts, or acid wash to wear. Grab those leg warmers and tease up that hair, tonight is the night for acid wash wear! Think Cyndi Lauper, think neon leotards, think the most epic 80s après-ski party… need we say more?

Slope-side Disco: For cabaret dinner and after party at the discoteque!

Think studio 54, Bowie self expression, Grace Jones glam, sparkles, sequins and disco pants - an unforgettable day all round. Take a look at our Pinterest for some inspiration and get yourself to the nearest vintage store because this is going to be one of the books!

Fancy faux & majestic: For Mountain Banquet

Think alpine chic, meets game of thrones, meets eccentric bohemian style. Floor length fur cloaks, chunky knitted sweaters,  bavarian style headpieces and creative outfitting are welcome for the open-air Mountain Banquet. Animal onesies, and novelty gimmicks are not. See here for some style inspiration!
