Traditionally Ski Resorts start bright and early, you’re up, breakfasted and out on the slopes by 09:00.
We understand that you have been out the night before and give you just a little more recovery time.
Our days start shortly before 10h00, a sight to behold, Communal stretching led by the EGSW Drag Queens. The best way to get those aching muscles working again each morning!
Of course, if you choose to, you can get out early and catch those beautifuly groomed virgin slopes and lay some first tracks, then head off, taking in as much of Les 3 Vallée’s ski domain as you can. Even with 6 full days you will be hard pressed to cover the entire Ski Area, so its all about choices, where do you want to go today?
You can join our own EGSW ski school or one of the EGSW hosted groups and be guided around Les 3 Vallées with no concerns about what lift, which run, is it the right direction, when does it close!
