Overview

At Ticket To Ride we are excited to launch our new Off Piste Explorers week in the amazing Three Valleys.

Aimed at advanced skiers looking to push themselves off-piste and discover new areas of the mountain and their own skiing. A week of guiding but with continued technique & tactical instruction.

If you are looking to take your off-piste skiing to the next level and want to explore the best of the 3 Valleys Powder then this week could be for you.

What to Expect

 

OFF THE SNOW

  • Return transfers from Geneva airport (leaving GVA at 15:00 on your Course Start Day, and arriving in Geneva at 13:00 on your Course End Day)
  • Catered accommodation in a shared room in the New TTR Mountain Lodge (single room available too for an additional fee of £280 for the week)*
  • 6 Days of Cooked breakfast and 2-course dinner. Wednesday is the staff day off, with self-service breakfast and a chance for you to sample the tasty local restaurants.
  • 6 Day 3 Valleys lift pass

ON THE SNOW

  • 5 full days off piste tuition.
  • Full safety equipment provided (backpack, transceiver, shovel and probe)
  • Training on how and when to use the safety equipment
  • Progressional training about general snow awareness and mountain safety

 

The course is designed to take you to the next level with your off-piste skiing. We will start the week making sure we all have good basic technique off the side of the piste then gradually start dipping our toes further and going deeper – each day building on our technique, our confidence and ability.

 

Each day we will endeavor to take on some new snow, terrain and use new or developed skills that will put you on the road to confidently skiing deep in the Backcountry.

FAQs

Got a question about this course? Here's the best place to start. If you don't find your answer here, you can request a callback or get in touch using our contact page.

Located in Meribel Moussilon, the TTR Mountain Lodge offers chalet-style catering and comforts, with the warm social ambiance and short term bookings of a hostel. With a capacity of up to 20 people spread between Twin, Double and Triple En Suite rooms, this Chalet is perfect for solo travelers or large groups. Offering an excellent 2-course menu served along with its large tables, guests from all walks of life can share stories of their great day on the mountain. The Chalet has a large South Facing terrace with a Hot Tub overlooking the mountains, as well as a Sauna in the lower levels of the building. If you're not socializing in the open plan Dining and Living Room area, kick back and relax in the media room which is kitted out with a large wrap around sofa, Widescreen TV, Apple TV, and Sound System.

There are limited single room upgrades available to individuals on this trip for an additional fee. Contact us for price and availability information. 

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! 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 6 only on this course.

We get a mixture of people on our ski camps. Generally people are very keen skiers who are looking to progress and do something different with their time in the mountains! We live for skiing and adventure so I think our customers often have similar outlooks! All ages are welcome, just have a positive attitude and the confidence to try new things and you'll fit in well.

As part of this course, we will be including a transfer departing from Geneva Airport at 15:00 on the start date. Therefore, ensure that your arrival time is no later than 14:30 in order to make the transfer to Meribel. On the return, we will include a transfer to Geneva Airport departing from the chalet at 10:00 on the final day of your camp. The average transfer time is 3 hours and check in 2 hours, therefore you should book your departure flight from 15:00.

If your arrival or departure flights fall outside our free transfer times, then get in touch and we may be able to organise a private transfer for you on request at an additional cost, subject to availability. If you do need a private transfer please be aware that transfers are usually only available from 6am to 9pm so try and arrange your flights around these times. Alternatively you can hire a car from Geneva. 

Again, if you are planning on coming out earlier or staying on afterwards, please note that you will have to arrange your airport transfers at your own expense.

This trip is aimed at advanced skiers with on and off piste experience, looking to push themselves in new areas and really explore what the 3 valleys can offer. Prior off-piste experience is a must (even if you are a little rusty) and you should be stoked to explore places you wouldn't have gone before. If you are unsure as to the level of the group or whether it is for you, give us a call in the office on 0208 7899 055 and we would be happy to help.
