A week of girl's all mountain ski training with top coaching and great company!
Combine a week of all-round ski coaching with daily yoga, throw in some healthy home cooked meals, plenty of wine and a bunch of like minded ladies and you've got yourself one hell of a week! Explore the 3 Valleys by day and relax in the chalet by night. We are looking for beginner-intermediate skiers who are up for a new challenge and want to improve all aspects of their skiing in a friendly, confidence-boosting atmosphere. Master moguls, progress in powder, learn to carve and try out some jumps in the park!
Run by girls, for girls! No patronising "you can do it" here, we know how to create a fun and friendly atmosphere that will make you want to try things you never thought you could do! Our girls camps are designed to push you, so by being with other female skiers, and coached by Emily, it should provide the perfect week to be able to push yourself and progress.
The Coach - Emily Sarsfield
We were so lucky to have Emily on board for this exclusive week in April 2017! 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 in Meribel! 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.

Here you'll find a week by week breakdown of your course.
Arrival at Geneva Airport (ideally by 3pm) and get a transfer to your chalet. Get settled in, meet the others in the group and your coach Emily, and have a nice meal together before skiing starts the next day!
Day 1 & 2
After a wholesome breakfast in the chalet, meet up with Emily for a 4 hour ski session - covering a variety of skills and techniques on all terrain, depending on conditions and what you would like to work on within the group! Finish off the day with a group yoga session to ease out those well-worked muscles!
Another 4 hour lesson, maybe focussing on some beginner freestyle to learn some cool tricks! Followed by dinner in a local Savoyard restaurant for the chalet host's night off.
Rest Day to explore the amazing 3 Valleys at your leisure, or relax with a swim and spa day in the Olympic Centre in Meribel. Another yoga session, maybe on top of the mountain this time to fully appreciate the mountain views and clear air!
Another amazing day of tuition from Emily Sarsfield. Tailor the session to what you would like to focus on, or what the conditions are best for. There is an option to try out ski touring if you would like to learn new skills and really get out into the untouched areas of the 3 Valleys.
Final day of skiing with Emily followed by apres beers at the Ronnie! We can go through all the photos from the week to see your new ski skills!
Final breakfast in the chalet and take a transfer back to Geneva to meet your return flight. Please note that the earliest transfers leave at around 5am so would be able to meet a flight no earlier than 10am.
This trip is aimed at intermediate-advanced skiers, around a Level 3 or above on our ability scale. Generally having 4-5 weeks on snow prior to the course is enough, and the most important thing is a good attitude to improving and learning new skills. 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.
A lovely cosy chalet in an amazing location in Meribel, close to pistes and town amenities. You will be hosted by our wonderful Ticket To Ride Chalet Staff, who are experienced cooks and great skiers themselves.
The rooms are twin share but you can upgrade to a single room at additional cost
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 altogether on this course.
