This year ES are entering a team into the PDG (Patrouille Des Glaciers). It’s a ski mountaineering race from Zermatt to Verbier. In this video we meet the team.
Help put a smile on somebody’s face!
ES Adaptive are looking for budding volunteers in the area of Verbier to help out and join in with lessons and events!
What is ES Adaptive?
Our Adaptive Snowsports Program in Verbier aims to assist the people with disabilities to enjoy the thrill and freedom of the mountains with their family and friends!
A lot of time and effort goes into Adaptive Snowsports and in the past we have relied heavily on the support of dedicated volunteers to help with our lessons. Without this generous support we would not be able to do what we currently do and run efficiently! As a result, this season we have decided to make this official and launch a Volunteer Program to get as many people involved as possible and fulfilling the Adaptive Experience!
We understand that Time can sometimes be difficult to spare but no matter, if you are can spare a minute or 24 hours we would be happy to get you involved! This is a great opportunity to develop skills and experience working with individuals with a disability and can be extremely rewarding. Rewards will be offered in return for all your hard work and dedicated time! All we ask is that you have your own lift pass and bring along massive SMILES! 😆
You are guaranteed you have an AWESOME time and meet some truly amazing people!!
Join our Facebook group and come along to our Welcome Meeting on Thursday 19th December at Brasserie Le Bec restaurant (W-Hotel) in Verbier and for more information, contact Sam at adaptive@europeansnowsport
.com or via the European Snowsports office.
All our Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless!!
Yesterday, we put up photos of it snowing heavily… In case you though we were having you on, here is what Verbier looked like this morning.
OK people, deep breaths…. It is only 6 weeks till the season kicks off! Keep your eyes peeled for information on opening dates across our three resorts.
September is always a quiet month in Verbier. With Summer behind us and the winter a few months away the resort is caught slightly in limbo. However, of one thing is certain, the annual cheese festival in Le Chable will go ahead and it will be fun!
Bagnes Capital de Raclette less formally known as “Cheesemas” was on this weekend. The festival celebrates the Val de Bagnes most famous produce in the way that the Swiss do it best; a massive street festival going on late into the night. With hundreds of stalls selling local produce its difficult not to consume your weight in raclette!
The ES team were there to enjoy the festivities which looked a little like this!
Oh what fun!
More surprisingly in September, was the arrival of some early season snow! We woke up on Thursday morning to a very cool +3*C and a covering of snow above 2000 metres. Good signs for this season? We hope so….
We love this little video all about the Verbier Festival, check it out…
