Week 4: 4th- 11th February

Another jam packed week of activities!!

First aid success

With a mixture of both tuition and first aid training, the students schedules were once again extremely busy. Despite this, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Particular standouts in first aid were Josh, Annie and Tommy who all completed their practical components exceptionally.

Congratulations to all Snowskoolers who passed their first aid qualifications.

One step closer to becoming a level 2 ski/snowboard instructor.

Celebrations and sports fun off piste

Later on in the week we celebrated Gracie’s birthday with cake in Chalet Croquette and drinks afterwards. Happy Birthday Gracie!!

On Saturday evening, we spent our time at La Taverne to soak up a double header in the 6 nations. Tension amongst the British Snowskoolers arose when the Welsh held a late lead against England. Ollz, Martin,  Siobhan and Elise were all sitting on the edge of their seats when England nudged ahead to seal a late win. It’s safe to say we have some passionate sport fans amongst the group.

Fresh powder joy

On Sunday morning, we were blessed with a top up of 10cms of fresh powder in the village. This made Sunday an epic morning of skiing on both the off piste and on piste portions of the mountain. Some including Jokull and Eddie, revelled in the powder bowls of Courchevel whilst others enjoyed doing laps of the Saulire. All in all, it was a great day for on mountain activities.

Transitioning from week 4 to week 5

As week 4 came to a close we said farewell the first round of our lovely chalet hosts, and look forward to work shadowing in week 5!!

Week 5: 11th -18th February 

Almost half way through the Snowskool programme

Time has well and truly flown. This week was like any other with plenty of on and off piste activities to excite the Snowskoolers.

Great skiing conditions

After a reasonable dump of snow over the weekend, the students made the most of the good conditions and took to Mount Vallon for some on/off piste skiing. Whilst Gracie, Laurent and Cydney took to the groomed runs, others including Shawn, Travis and Zoltan revelled in the knee deep powder bowl of the mountain. Lots of fun and laughter was had.

Shadowing on the pistes

This week we commenced work shadowing – a great opportunity for the students to put into practice the skills they have learnt over the past 5 weeks. Particular mentions were Tommy Agnew, Siobhan, Jamie, Ella and Cydney who were very helpful in their shadowing.

Rock n Roll Bingo and ‘Love is in the seasonaire’ après fun

On Monday evening, some of the Snowskoolers went to Rock n Roll bingo, a great evening of prizes, music and dancing. This was followed with “Love is in the seasonaire” – a valentine’s day event that featured a number of bachelors/bachelorettes trying to win the heart of “the blind date”.

Congratulations to both Cosima and Tomas who were the winning candidates. An honourable mention to Annie who made it to the final vs Cosima.

Ice hockey spectacle


On Friday, a group of us headed to Parc Olympique to watch the mighty Méribel Bouquetins take on Montpellier in the Ice hockey. After a close second half, Meribel came away with the win, much to the excitement of the local crowd. It was a great spectacle to watch.
