Ski Inspection Visit to Equity Club in France and Italy Featured

After three exhilarating days, five countries, six resorts, eight hotels, a bit of skiing and a LOT of driving I’m finally home and able to tell you about my amazing experience!. A team of 13 of us flew to Geneva on Monday the 4th of Jan to learn more about the fantastic Equity Club properties. Firstly we drove to Le Corbier for lunch and had a look around the wonderful Club Mont Corbier before scoping out the resort. We then headed off to Les Rois Mages at Montgenèvre, which was to be our base for the two nights of the trip. After a tasty three-course dinner we joined in with a school group on an exploratory treasure trail around town before checking out the hotel and finally being treated to a presentation on some of our Austrian and Italian properties by Bill - one of our head office ski specialists. Day two saw us take an early start, filling our bellies with a buffet breakfast and making the trip to Risoul for a tour of the Equity Club Le Morgan. After taking a look around the resort we were lucky to get a few hours skiing Risoul and Vars (part…

Chemmy’s Chairlift Chat

The long term forecast is for an incredibly snowy winter. Hard to believe with the warm temperatures that we have been having recently! But the El Nino weather system will bring huge snow (especially to the high peaks in the west coast America and Canada). Which is exciting all British snow fans, especially our 4 Time Winter Olympian Ambassador here at Inspiring Learning, Chemmy Alcott. Throughout the Winter Chemmy is going to blog for us. Now those of you who have met or know Chemmy, are well aware that she loves to talk - hardly surprising for someone who spends about 1 minute hurtling down pistes at around 80mph then chills out during a 10 minute chairlift ride! Chemmy herself admits that most of her inspiration comes when she is on transport - whether that be on the numerous planes, trains, car journeys, gondola, t-bar and chairlift that frequent her nomadic life. So we have aptly called her blogs - “Chemmy’s Chairllift Chat.” Hey first blog came to her last week when she was riding a chair in Hintertux whilst coaching for CDC Performance and she was chatting to the most ill prepared skier you have ever seen. So up…
