My camps this year will again be running from Valtournenche/Cervinia.
Valtournenche/Cervinia is in Italy and is very snow sure. It is connected to Zermatt so the terrain is extensive with some very long descents. Literally the longest in the world! You also have the incredible sight of the Matterhorn in fact the view from every direction is absolutely incredible. The last two years of camps were a hit with everyone loving the laid back Italian vibe, the perfect pistes and amazing food at prices way lower than France. It’s the reason I am running them again here in the same resort and guest house.
On my camps, I ride whatever the conditions are best suited for. We often get powder snow in December with hardly anyone on the mountain. Last year proved that with perfect powder on piste. No need to take risks, just shred the piste. If we don’t have good powder then the course will be run as a performance camp aimed at ironing out bad habits, learning new skills and setting up an action plan for the season ahead. There will be video analysis of the days riding each evening. There are a maximum of 6 riders on each course.
The riding level required is confident intermediate to advanced. The idea is to improve in multiple areas. You don’t need to be an expert at all. Just keen with a good attitude to learning.
There are also some very small resorts close to the resort which we will take advantage of with our van if conditions are suitable.
The accommodation is in an authentic Italian bed and breakfast. We eat out of an evening in one of the lovely restaurants in the village. The price includes transfers, lift passes, and of course coaching and guiding from yours truly. Transfers are from Turin and your flight needs to arrive before 1pm on the 8th or the 14th and depart after 10am on the 14th or the 20th December depending on the course you are booked onto.
Both courses are 6 nights and 5 days riding. £1350
