start your morning right

Begin the day with a big family breakfast to give you the energy you'll need for a day on the pistes, and partying until midnight! Enjoy pastries and coffee at a local bakery, have the private chef at your villa prepare something, or enlist the kids to help cook! After you've had your fill, it's time to get ready to hit the slopes, so head to the ski room and put on your gear!


hit the slopes in the afternoon

Spend the afternoon flying down the mountainside, enjoying the fresh powder and breathtaking views. Stay on the bunny hill and teach the little ones how to ski, or take the adventurous teens down the black diamond trails to put your skills to the test.

After you've tired yourselves out, you've earned the best part of a ski holiday: après-ski! Head to the lodge or back to your villa to warm up with pastries and hot drinks while recounting tales of your adventures on the slopes. After you've had a snack or lunch at a local restaurant, it's time to hit the sauna. Let the steam warm you up or jump into the jacuzzi before indulging in a massage. Then it's time to start getting ready for dinner!
