Single Rooms

We have three rooms at nearby Chalet Lisa set up for single occupancy. You will take your meals at the main chalet and resort transfers will depart from there. Single Room en-suite is £559 and Single Room with shared bath is £499.  Single room occupancy is extremely limited and if you are joining the coaching holiday as a single traveller Ski Hame can co-ordinate room sharing to avoid the single supplement. All rooms at the main chalet are offered on a sharing basis.

 

Airport Transfers
Transfers to/from Geneva airport can be arranged through Ski Hame at €100 on a first come first serve basis.


Lift pass €288 TBC
Although we will be based in the Meribel valley we may ski in the other two of the Three valleys on one or more days to take advantage of the terrain. A four day full Three Valleys pass is required for this course and will be delivered to the chalet if you take advantage of our pre booking service.

Piste rescue insurance (Carre Neige) €3.3
0 per day
We highly recommend you add the piste rescue insurance offered by the lift company when you buy your lift pass.

Equipment hire
We have negotiated great rates with our preferred rental shop if you need to hire ski equipment which will be delivered to the chalet for you. Contact Ski Hame directly for prices as they vary depending on the level of ski equipment you require.

Coaching

 

The teaching will be comprised of three extended days of coaching (9-3:30) and one day (9-1:30) to finish the holiday.

This holiday is suitable for level 8 and higher skiers with focussed coaching designed for skiers looking to refine their skills base and raise their skiing performance with extensive use of challenging drills with plenty of mileage to help consolidate the days learning.

Group size will be no more than eight per coach. We will do lots of video feedback, with analysis and review sessions held in your chalet in the evenings or on the hill in a convenient bar or restaurant.

Our accommodation partner for this coaching holiday is Ski Hame, an independent chalet operator that operates a number of chalets in the Trois Vallees. Chalet Grange á Charlotte is a lovely chalet located in the traditional hamlet of Meribel Les Allues. It sleeps up to 14 people in great comfort, featuring seven en-suite bedrooms (all with full size baths except one which has a shower).


It is a very comfortable and spacious chalet, with an open plan lounge/dining area, log fireplace and underfloor heating throughout. There are hair dryers in every bedroom, and a boot room with full size boot dryer/warmer for comfortable boots every day! There is free wifi internet access throughout the chalet. The highlight of the apres-ski facilities is a full size indoor hot tub.

Meribel Les Allues is a short journey from the centre of Meribel itself. Chalet staff will take you each morning to the main lifts in Meribel by private minibus, where you will meet the Inside Out Skiing coaches. At the end of each day we will agree a time and location for collection by the chalet staff, which could be Meribel or Meribel village, allowing for a different venue for apres-ski drinks before being taken back to the chalet. Alternatively, the free resort shuttle bus or Olympic bubble can be taken to and from the chalet should you wish to do your own thing.

Transfers to the resort

 

Transfer to and from Geneva Airport is available on a first come first basis from SkHame. Transfer to the resort will be by private minibus service. Pleascontact Ski Hame to confirm transfer timings before you book your flights. As a rough guide look at flights arriving Geneva airport between 12:00-14:00 and no later than 16:00 on arrival day to ensure you arrive in time for dinner in the chalet. There may be a wait for others on different flights as Ski Hame shares the transfer with other chalet operators but their service is very reliable and well coordinated.


For return flights we will have a late check out so you can shower and pack after the final morning of skiing.

For the return journey please ensure your flight departs Geneva airport no earlier than 8.00pm. The actual departure time from Meribel will depend on weather and road conditions but is typically 3pm. We will aim to get you to GVA no later than 6:30pm.

Travel within the resort

 

The villages of Meribel Les Allues is approximately 10 minutes from the main Meribel lift complex. Ski Hame's chalet staff are extremely helpful and use a private minibus to take you to the slopes each day where you will meet the Inside Out Skiing coaches. A time and pickup point is agreed each day for collection after skiing, allowing you the choice of apres-ski venues.

In addition to Ski Hame's service there is also a free resort shuttle bus service to get you anywhere within the Meribel valley and taxis are plentiful if you desire a late night out.
