Private ski lessons in Chamonix
 
  Meeting Points     

Generally for morning lessons I will meet you at your accommodation & then transport you to the ski area that is most suitable for that day. For half day lessons starting at lunchtime we will meet at the ski areas and I will then return you to your accommodation after the lesson.

This section is intended to show you the meeting points that I may select so that it is easier for you to identify them.

I will be wearing a jacket with ski instructors medal. I am short with curly dark hair so it usually easy to spot me ! Please do not hesitate to call me on my mobile telephone if you are delayed or lost.


Le Tour – valley floor

Good weather meeting point: in front of the restaurant l’Olympique sign, to the right of the lift ticket desks.

Charamillon (alt 1950m)

La Vormaine – valley floor 

In front of the small trail map sign  situated below the ski tows.

There is car parking very close to the ski tows.  Having driven up from Argentiere & got to the large car park immediately beneath the Le Tour gondola, drive over the bridge then turn right up a narrow street between the old houses. Keep going to the end of the road & you will be in the car park. If the police are asking you to park at Montroc because of congestion , you can explain that you are going to La Vormaine & if you are lucky they may let you through.

If you arrive by bus, simply walk across to the snack bar  by walking past the  ticket  desks of Le Tour, continue on, passing immediately  below the Restaurant l’Olympique & you will see the ski tows ahead of you. Snack bar is beneath the ski tows.
