A high altitude ski or snowboarding trip with added adventures to add to your winter experience in the Alps!.
Orcieres 1850 is a great high altitude resort for beginners right through to advanced skiers and snowboarders who want to ski or surf 'off the beaten track'.
To add a bit of extra adventure to your skiing or snowboarding holiday we also include 4 activity points which you can exchange for a range of other winter activities to spice up your week! Try ice climbing, husky dog sledding, snowshoeing and more....
We believe in making your holidays hassle free so for all our ski and snowboard adventure packages, we'll meet you in resort, give you your ski pass (no queuing at the ticket desk), pre-book your skis or snowboards and arrange your chosen activities. We'll give you advice on where the best pistes are, where to eat, shop and generally have fun in the resort and surrounding area!!
For advanced skiers and snowboarders there is also the little known ski village of Serre Eyraud just next door with some 'extreme' skiing opportunities through the trees off piste. The ski pass is covered with your Orcieres pass and there is a free shuttle there every Thursday if you want to explore. We can organise a guide for you for the day (it is possible to use your points for this or pay as optional extra) if you want to go for a serious off piste adventure!
If you would like to include ski lessons, creche or babysitting services, ski kindergarden, additional activities or a different holiday formula, please contact us and we'll tailor make you a quote.
We appreciate the importance of quality ski instruction and have chosen to work with the ESI (Ecole du Ski International) ski school for ski lessons who are slightly more expensive then the other ski schools but offer a more personal and friendly service with smaller group sizes.
We can arrange ski lessons with them for you on request (for additional cost). We also organise winter holidays for non-skiers. Please have a look at our winter multi activity holiday for more ideas.
