Chalet accommodation and ski tuition in Courchevel 

This is a really popular ski trip for our solo skiers, which we run twice a year. You will benefit from chalet accommodation on this group ski trip, as well as ski lessons based on your ability and apres sessions organised by Singlesport. Which means, there is plenty of opportunity to meet new, like-minded skiers throughout the trip.  

This is definitely a good choice if you want to socialise and combine the very best lessons with plenty of free ski time as well. By attending lessons (10 hours in total) it’s an ideal way to identify other skiers who ski at your pace even though they may be staying in other chalets. Even the best skiers are challenged by these excellent instructors and beginners are well looked after and encouraged by more experienced guests. This year we will be offering lesson extensions as an option for a small extra charge to those who wish to travel further through the Three Valleys or spend more time off piste or in the bumps, (subject to number of guests interested)

Who is this solo Courchevel ski holiday for? 

This is the ski holiday that suits all abilities as 10 hours tuition is offered to everyone from beginners to advanced skiers. Whether you’re single or have a partner who doesn’t ski, this is a perfect trip that will allow you plenty of time on the slopes whilst enabling you to meet like-minded skiers in a friendly environment. 

Price

Prices vary according to the chalet you choose but they all include 7 nights accommodation, 7 breakfasts 7 teas ( 3 breakfasts & teas will be self service) 6 dinner with wine and 10 hours ski tuition

Please note that chalet staff have one full day and 2 mornings off (when rooms are not serviced) – this is due to changes in French legislation that we must comply without greatly increasing prices

ANOther–if you find your own accommodation we can offer all food in one of the skivo chalets plus lessons for £370 in premier chalets or £340 in chalet Roger ,  If you find accommodation but can’t fill all of it I am happy to introduce you to other guests who are also hoping to take up the ANOther option.

Chalet owners far prefer it if we can organise ourselves to share rooms. I am therefore very happy to find you someone to share with. I have however persuaded them to agree to some single occupancy for a supplement but these rooms are limited. If you require a single room the skivo2 supplement is £300 in premier chalets & £250 in standard chalets.

Chalet & hotel rooms vary considerably. Where possible we give priority to those sharing a room before those requiring single occupancy. Within each category if rooms differ we try to give the advantage to those who book first.

skivo2 premier chalets give more choice of food , beautifully decorated ensuite accommodation, everything that the standard chalets do plus that little bit extra:

Guests in skivo2 premier chalets enjoy a full cooked breakfast along with fresh fruit salad in addition to the standard breakfast offered in the other chalets. Or your chef will be happy to help if you prefer something else.

A glass or two of chilled bubbly along with some canapés before dinner each evening

A speciality cheeseboard with fresh fruit and port is offered each evening after dinner

Specially chosen top quality red, white and rosé wines are also served each evening

Aditionally each bedroom is supplied with a hairdryer and extra soft, fluffy bath and hand towels

Flights/Trains

By booking early you can spread your costs & get the advantage of good flight or train prices but please do not book your flight or train until your chalet booking is confirmed.

Flights for skivo2 chalets should arrive in Geneva before 16.30 —-return flights take off after 10.30

You can book the Eurostar train leaving London on Friday night or Saturday morning and return on the train leaving Moutiers on Saturday morning or Saturday night. If you travel by night both ways you will get 8 days skiing as opposed to 6 days if you use the daytime service or 7 days if you use one of each. Eurostar will start selling on July 17th

I am happy to advise you which flights other guests are using as the more people on the same flight the easier it is to arrange transfers

 

Mountain Heaven guests requiring transfers  must land by 14.00 and return on a flight taking off after 13.30

TRAINS

www.seat61.com and  www.snowcarbon.co.uk are a great help when planing train journeys—–often cheaper & just as quick

Transfers

Skivo2 chalets

Shared 8 seat minibus transfers meet flights landing before 1630 in Geneva . Return transfers serve flights departing from 10.30. The last transfer leaves resort at 13.00 so guests on evening flights will have a wait in Geneva. We try to avoid waiting but those landing & taking off at peak times ie between 12.00 & 1500 are likely to wait less than early or late arrivals & departures. The more people choosing the same flight the better! Please ask me if you would like to know which flights other guests have chosen.

£120pp return: Geneva,
£25pp return: Moutiers (£15 single)

I can help you find other transfers if you choose flights to other airports

Mountain Heaven transfers

£120 pp return Geneva—-you must land by 14.00 and return on a flight taking off after 13.30
