Making Magical Ski Memories with Children

If your little ones are newbies to shredding powder then it is understandable that you will be preoccupied with making this a fun and memorable activity. I am a strong believer that the most important element in the equation is choosing the right resort. Morzine is a superb choice as it is one of the few resorts with a Famille Plus status, which is awarded to those who demonstrate excellence services for families.

Heliskiing in Courmayeur: for a True Off Piste Experience

If you dream of making tracks through virgin powder fields and previously unmarked mountainsides, then heliskiing is definitely something you should consider. Imagine climbing on board a helicopter in the heart of your resort and being flown deep into the Alps, away from the lifts and other people, and then being dropped off on deserted peaks to make your way down. If this sounds like you, then you need to book a heliskiing excursion as part of your next winter sports holiday. Heliskiing Courmayeur Unfortunately heliskiing is not available throughout much of the Alps: France and Germany hav ...

Go Sky High & Ski Free in Courmayeur

Courmayeur, nestled in the Italian Alps at the foot of Mont Blanc, may be famous as an elegant ski resort but for those who want the snow and mountains without the high octane thrills, it also offers a range of other activities. With exclusive boutiques and excellent restaurants scattered around the resort’s pretty pedestrianised centre, combined with the short transfer from Geneva to Courmayeur, it makes a wonderful spot for a winter break, even without the skiing. Mountain Views Without Skis Restaurants and boutiques are all very well, but if you’ve come to the Alps for stunning mountain ...

Get Ready to Rock the Mountain: Musilac 2018

Ice Climbing in Chamonix: What to Expect

For an athletic adventure that will really get your adrenaline pumping, look no further than ice climbing. Ice Ice, Not For Babies… Ice is unlike any other climbing surface. During the day its consistency changes massively, from hard and flaky in the morning to the soft in the afternoon, so the sport gets easier as the sun warms the ice later in the day. Every time you climb, the route will be slightly different and your guide will need to alter the route and the position of the rope anchor. It’s unpredictable and has an element of danger, but that’s part of the reason why the sport is s ...
