The Coach - Emily Sarsfield
We were so lucky to have Emily on board for this exclusive week! As well as being a BASI Level 4 instructor and Meribel local, Emily is a Ski Cross athlete who has represented on the World Cup circuit since 2006. She is 7x British Ski Cross Champion, has reached No. 20 in the world and trains all year round.
She can offer a massive variety of training, as ski cross combines speed, technique, and elements of freestyle. She teaches members of the public through her own ski school in Meribel when she isn't training or competing, so she can help any level of skier and provide great advice to anyone wanting to improve their skiing or confidence on the mountain.

Food and Drink
What you eat is important! You'll be riding hard for 6 days, and it's important that your body stays fuelled. We'll be serving up hot cooked breakfasts each morning, as well as a selection of cereals, fruit and pastries if preferred, spreading up afternoon tea for your return, and then presenting a 4-course meal of energy filled healthy dinners. Wine will be served with the evening meals. Your chalet hosts have one day off in a week, which gives you an opportunity to enjoy the local restaurants in Meribel. Don’t worry they’ll still be on hand to advise on the best places to wine and dine! Dietary requirements are not a problem, we only ask for this information to be highlighted during the booking stage.

Wholesome, healthy and nutritious. We are aiming to start the revolution against stodgy and overly-filling, full-of-cream-and-butter chalet food. Instead we love fresh healthy food, influenced by flavours from around the globe, with still a good dose of chocolate desserts and cake in the afternoon! We have developed a menu that aims to sustain throughout a day of skiing but not make you feel like you have put on weight over your holiday! Let us know if you have any dietary requirements and we will cater for them.
There will be a maximum of 8 on this course.
As part of this course, we will be including a transfer departing from Geneva Airport at 15:00 on the start date.
