Getting the BASICS right

Good instruction: It goes without saying that the snowsports instructors are a vital part of the holiday. We very well know that an instructor can make or break a holiday! Our instructors are use to dealing with British school groups and know how to make their holidays fun but safe.

Quality equipment: Equally, equipment plays a very important role in progression. We use new and well-maintained equipment from our own shop to ensure quality, comfort and safety.

Adapted accommodation: We offer a selection of hotels in Serre Chevalier chosen for their great locations, adapted meals and facilities.

 

Adaptabilty

No holiday is the same. You may arrive in resort late or weather conditions may make the mountain difficult one day. You may want a picnic, an afternoon off or a day non-stop so all groups can ski the whole area: We will adapt to your requirements as well as provide you with ideas so you make the most out of your time in Serre Chevalier. We, like no one else, have the ability to coordinate instructors and hoteliers so you get your way.

 

Flexibility

We can combine into your holiday just about anything. You may wish to use the holiday as part of your GCSE PE course, Geography, History, French or even Adventure Training. If you would like to try out Kite surfing or snowboarding one afternoon then lessons can be adapted.

In resort we work with a choice of hotels and hostels, so we can find accommodation to suit your budget.

Testimonials


  • E Bowden DCPS / Dullwich school

"The small groups and all day tuition got the boys to progress really quickly. It was great that we got to explore the whole mountain and did stay on the same slopes. Best instruction we ever had."

  • Sheila.Kelsall / S.K. St Catherines

"We have had three outstanding ski trips in Serre Chevalier with Davina and her professional team.  
 
Ski Connections provide dedicated instructors who will remain with your groups all day. The group sizes are smaller than is the norm in France, and the tuition is of a high standard so everyone makes good progress, no-one ‘drops out’ and injuries are rare! The equipment provided is also much better than we had previously experienced.
 
The most striking difference is in the level of service that Davina provides. She liaises very closely with us at every stage, listening and responding to all our queries, taking care of all aspects of the trip; skiing, hotel and apres-ski activities. A personal, face-to-face service is maintained throughout the visit, so that any day-to-day issues are addressed quickly and effectively. Instead of a teenage rep who arrived a day earlier, we have the continual support of an experienced, mature and committed friend in resort, and it makes a huge difference.
 
This company is truly a league apart from the big-name tour operators that we have used in the past."

  • Susan Brooks & Ian Gibb / Broomwood Hall Upper School

"Davina and her team at Ski Connections are wonderful. They offer highly personalised school ski trips and are always on hand to help. We particularly love going with Ski Connections as they offer small ski groups, therefore the children really progress with their skiing. The instructors are highly professional and above all great fun; the children always love their lessons. The tailor-made après-ski activities are great; from the more active, sledding, bowling, disco or historical work and shopping, to the more relaxed, film, card/board game in the hotel or a trip to the thermal baths. Davina and Ski Connections are always considering how they can improve the trip for us year on year. They are very flexible with plans; the holiday is continually adapted for energy levels, weather conditions, capability of the children. Davina and her team always go above and beyond to make our week incredibly enjoyable and rewarding."
