31st March – Arrival + Departure Day, mini excursion, skiing

Time flies as we head into April, and what a last day of March it was today, lots of students leaving, but even more arriving as we head into probably one of the most busiest weeks in the season so far!

Our students that are staying for another week had the choice of skiing or venturing out of the Verbier bubble to Martigny to partake in some shopping and a bit of bowling, which they highly enjoyed. Our keen skiers, decided they didn’t want a day off to relax but wanted to hit the slopes to improve their techniques.

Our new arrivals, had lots of fun doing ski fit and clothes fit, to ensure they had the right equipment for their stay, but also loads of fun enjoying the fresh snow. Some of our students, as like most weeks have never seen snow before, so was a delight for them, especially as it was acutally snowing when the arrived!!

The evening was very relaxing and time for all the students to get an early night, as most have travelled far and wide to get to camp. Although very excited about the week ahead, was a quiet camp by the early hours of the evening as most campers crept off to bed ready for the fun packed week ahead on camp.

Today has been a busy day with plenty of departures and arrivals. It was sad to say goodbye to our school from Dubai as we’ve had a great week getting to know them all but we were all excited to welcome our new schools and individuals.

After a quick welcome speech we were straight into action, getting the children ski fitted and ready for their first big day on the mountain. A lot of the children also had the chance to explore Verbier village and enjoy a hot chocolate in the afternoon.

Tonight after a long day, we chilled out watching a movie and had an early night.

 

 

4th March – Skiing, Snowboarding, Departure day and Arrival day.

We said a sad goodbye to many of our schools on camp today and most of our individuals. We had an amazing week with them but it was now time to welcome a new school and individuals. After a long day of travelling, they still arrived with plenty of excitement and to the pleasant surprise of falling snow! After ski fitting they were straight outside having fun and games in the snow. For our existing school, they had their first day on the mountain and did amazingly. They have already impressed their instructors and are learning fast. Well done guys.

Tonight we had a mixture of activities. We had a chilled evening with movies and games for our new arrivals whilst our other school put their brains to the test with a Who Wants To Be a Millionaire game show. It’s now time for an early night, ready for a big day tomorrow.

21st January – Departure & Arrival Day, Skiing, Bowling & Movie Night

So today has been an emotional day for a lot of us here at camp as we have had many individuals leaving us who had been with us for one or two weeks. There were a lot of tears but it is great to know that so many friendships have been formed and lovely to see that they’re going to keep in touch with each other. However, we did have a lot of new arrivals today and everyone is getting to know each other over games of Uno, Cards and Jungle speed, whilst others are chilling out watching a movie.

During the day, our existing individuals had the option to go bowling and have a break from the mountain. Everyone had great fun and there were a few competitive games. The others chose not to have a break and continued to work on their technique as skiers and snowboarders and it was a lovely day to do so, with the sun shining and not a cloud in sight.

All our new arrivals have been kitted out with all their equipment needed for their first day on the mountain, and for some it is their first time on real snow! With exciting times ahead a lot of campers are having an early night ready to get up and go tomorrow.

Saturday 8th – Skiing, Snowboarding, Arrival Day & Games

Today has been an extremely busy day with plenty of departures and arrivals. It was so sad to see nearly all of our campers leave as we had the best week with them. However, it has been a super exciting day getting to know all our new arrivals who are kean to get out skiing tomorrow. They have been kitted up with all the gear they need to hit the slopes including ski jackets and of course their ski’s and snowboards. After this there was plenty of free time to start getting to know each other playing games of Pool, Table Tennis, Uno and Table Football. This evening we finished off with a chilled out Movie, ready for a long day of fun on the mountain tomorrow.

For those that are staying another week were back out on the mountain in the beautiful sunshine enjoying good snow conditions on piste. The Instructors were very impressed with how all their children are getting on and have improved enormously from the start. Good job to everyone and we’re sure they’re going to keep up the hard work!

Friday 26th – Departure & Arrival Day, Skiing, Movie Night!

Today, it has been very sad to see some of our lovely students leave us. After a great week or two with us, it was time for them to pack their bags and say their goodbyes to some great friends made during their stay as well as their instructors and monitors. We hope you have had  great time and hopefully see you back at les elfes soon!

On the other hand though, we have been super busy all day with the arrivals of new schools and individuals which is very exciting and marks a new week. After a speedy ski fit, ensuring they are all ready for their first day on the slopes tomorrow, the students had the chance to chill out and relax at les elfes as well as visiting the local village, to get to know their new surroundings. Outside, we had a good game of volleyball, making the most of the beautiful blue sky and sunshine in Verbier. This evening, they then had the chance to wind down with a movie in our cinema room, or catch an early night after a very long day of travelling.

For one school that had arrived the day before, they had the pleasure of getting out on to the mountain and taking part in their first ski lessons of the week! For those that are new to the sport, headed to les essert, the beginner slope to get to grips with being on skies and learning the basic moves. It has been an extremely hot day here, so jackets came off as the students tried hard to take in all the information from their enthusiastic ski instructors. After a lovely lunch outdoors, some of the groups were already heading up higher, to challenge themselves even further, impressing us all.

Our individual students had a slightly different day today, as they have already been here a week. They made the most of a mini lie in, a well deserved treat for all of them, and after lunch they made their way to Martigny for a competitive game of bowling. All the students had great fun, and enjoyed a break from the slopes, where they could chill out with their friends and have a good laugh. Back at camp they were joined by our new campers and have headed off to their chalets for a good nights sleep before hitting the mountain for a second week!
