REPEATING PARTICIPANTS

We want to make the experience of our repeating participant as complete and overwhelming as their first time at Les Elfes. They get the opportunity to enhance their skiing skills, move up to higher slopes and skill sets. There are eight levels of Ski Certification given at Les Elfes, and higher the level of certification, higher the technical ability of the participant in the sport.
We also introduce or change the Personality Development Courses and Skill Building Workshops and ensure that different learning outcomes and different excursions are offered to them.
