What is a ski safari?

Who will enjoy a ski safari?
The ski safari is NOT for loud-mouthed powder-hounds fixated on off-piste extreme. Neither is it for sweaty piste-bashers skiing every millisecond of their ski pass allowance. Our ski safari is:
- On piste
- A cultural experience
- A culinary experience
- It is the best Europe has to offer. On piste. A la carte.
All you have to do is follow your expert ski guide on carefully selected pistes, across three different countries and eight different ski resorts discovering some of the finest on-piste skiing Europe has to offer.
Ski safari dining and accommodation
- Dine in carefully selected mountain restaurants savouring local cuisine and fine wines,
- Enjoy high altitude coffee breaks and lunches savouring the best the mountain has to offer,
- Sleep in luxury hotels, your luggage awaiting your arrival at the end of your skiing day,

Zermatt, Switzerland to Cervinia, Italy. Stay in the ancient Roman fort of Aosta. Enjoy Italian food and 2000 year old architecture.
La Thuile, Italy to La Rosier, France. A short drive takes the ski safari to La Thuile, situated under the shadow of the Mont Blanc. Ski over the border into France. End day two with a night in famous, Val d’Isere – a short hop from La Rosier.
The ski safari skies from Val d’Isere to Tignes via the world famous Espace Killy. We then end the day a short hop away in Courchevel.
Visit the world’s biggest ski area on day 4 of the ski safari. This includes three big ski resorts with excellent links. Our aim is to see it all! We finish in the picturesque village of St Martin de Belle Ville where you can either carry on straight back to Geneva airport or you can stay on for additional nights.
Am I good enough?
The ski safari is for people who can ski to an intermediate level. It’s not a physical endurance challenge!
We rack up miles of skiing, but the day will be tailored to the group. There are lots of alternative routes to take on the piste map. We are skiing for pleasure!
We stop for coffee breaks and comfortable lunches. The focus is on the experience. If you are unsure about your level get in touch and talk to us. We can then assess your level together and make sure you are comfortable undertaking the safari.
Is there a lot of hiking?
There is NO hiking. None at all! The ski safari is entirely lift-served. At the end of each day you can normally see our transport waiting for us as we ski the last piste/trail.
How are we transported?
On days 1,3& 4 we start the ski safari day where we have stayed. We then end the day with a short trip in the minibus to our next resort. Refreshments are provided on the minibus and the trips are all short.
Where are my bags?
Your luggage is transported from hotel to hotel for you.
You are of course welcome to ski with a small backpack with water and other essentials should you wish to. We will be breaking regularly for refreshments. Everyone is also provided with a separate boot bag for your shoes so you can change out of your ski boots at the end of the day.
Our focus is on your comfort!
Must I know the route?
The ski safari is fully-guided. You will be accompanied at all times by instructors qualified to the highest international standard. They know, love and are passionate about the ski areas you will be visiting. They know the best pistes, the best restaurants, the best views and the best coffee stops. Your job is simply to follow!
