Take the first chair lift up on a powder day

Make sure you have your coffee flask at the ready! To be sure to get the first run of the day you must ensure for some careful planning... pre-queuing and an early start. But one thing is for sure, you won’t be disappointed when you are shredding through that powder.

Skiers try your hand at snowboarding and vise versa!

Skiers... have you ever given snowboarding a go? Try to master the art of boarding or test out a day of skiing (if boarding's already your thing). For all you know you could be a natural! or maybe you'll just end up with a bruised derriere!

Save up some money and 'get to the chopper'! Let's be honest Heli skiing won't make your bank balance look any good, but guaranteed you will ski in some of the best snow conditions on some of the best runs of your life.

Ski the Chamonix Valley

An area that should be on every skiers list, it's excellent range of testing and high altitude glacier runs, unbeatable snow means it is the undisputed off-piste capital of Europe.

Ski Paragliding

It's one of the best ways to get a great view of the mountains. Rather than investing in the help of a noisy, fuel guzzling helicopter, you can float peacefully across the French Alps at the same time as breathing in the fresh mountain air.
