The time has come! The time to take your life and your favorite sport to the next level! The time has come to achieve complete bliss while churning up French Powder with every turn! Welcome to the French Alps and Chamonix Valley! Yes, you earned it!

Chamonix offers a multitude of slopes for all levels, each ski area having its own merit. Tremendously long slopes, skiing through the trees, freeride, beginners slopes : an infinite number of possibilities for snowriders and mountain lovers alike.

Chamonix's skiing extends over 3 main areas : Brévent/Flégère, offering south-facing slopes and exceptional views of the Mont-Blanc chain, the Grands Montets, high altitude north-facing slopes which dominate the village of Argentière and the Balme area, wide open slopes at the top of the Chamonix valley, bordering on Switzerland. The sister resort of les Houches lies at the opposite end of the valley and is accessible with the Mont-Blanc Unlimited ski pass, which we will have!!!

chair23 We'll begin our days with Ted's yoga class and/or an exercise class taught by Tony Horton, creator of P90X, then head to the mountain for a day of cutting tracks and exploring the Chamonix Valley! We will meet for some lunch and share stories of the morning. Then create more amazing moments in the afternoon!

Our hotel is located at the foot of the famous Mont Blanc and Aiguille du Midi mountains, right in the heart of the ski town of Chamonix and only a few steps from the railway station.
