What you'll do

We'll explore the vast Espace Killy ski area linking Val d'Isere and Tignes, which is regarded by many as the best ski area in the world, with over 300km of fantastic and varied pistes. If you haven't been before (or even if you have), in this session you'll discover the highlights of this amazing ski area - a great way to start your week. You'll learn to navigate the area's (excellent) lift system and experience some of its world-famous pistes as well as some of its quieter and lesser-known corners. Greg will show you the best areas for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, show you where to find the best snow conditions throughout the day and point out some of his favourite spots for a hot chocolate or lunch on the mountain. You'll join up with like-minded skiers & snowboarders - with luck you'll make friends for life (or maybe just a week!) Please note this group is not for beginners, you must have skied or snowboarded before and be confident on blue and - ideally - red runs. If you're not sure about your level, please feel free to send us a message! Why not combine this session with the technique/confidence refresher in the morning (also with Greg) to get your holiday off to the best start?

Where you'll be

The exact itinerary will depend on the experience level of the group and the weather conditions, but typically the 3-hour session will be sufficient to cover many of the Espace Killy's highlights, from Le Fornet at the top of the valley in Val d'Isere, to Tignes Les Brevieres down the valley and/or the Grande Motte glacier above Tignes Val Claret, which tops out at over 3400m! Greg will adapt the itinerary to suit the requirements of the group.
