Tuesday April 4th 2017 Escape Rooms, Chalet Night, Torchlight Walk

Today was another awesome day here at Les Elfes and campers made sure they made the most of the great weather and snow.
All the groups headed out to practice all the skills they have been learning over the past days and a lot of the groups have progressed from the magic carpet to the big slopes now hitting blues and reds and really toning their skills.
This afternoon after relaxing over hot chocolate and snacks the campers all signed up for various afternoon activities some got to go try their luck escaping from the Verbier escape rooms, some baked some yummy chocolate chip cookies, some visited the village for some shopping and crepes, others had their language courses and some stayed at les elfes and played games.
Tonight all of the campers who live in the Chalet got to enjoy their at the chalet and hang out their for the night.
The rest of the campers after dinner went on a awesome torchlight walk up the mountain to check out the stars and  others participated in the cube which is a bunch of different games to beat the clock.
Everyone here is now off to bed to catch up on some sleep for the big day to come tomorrow.

 

Crans Montana. Tuesday 4th April.

Day 3 with are new campers in Crans Montana. The sun was shining and the snow was excellent. All the groups have done amazing with the beginner groups mastering how to turn and stop on the magic carpet, whilst the advanced groups are learning how to carve on red runs.

The campers came back for snacks and hot chocolate this afternoon. We then went to the cinema in Crans to see the new Beauty and Beast film, which all the campers loved they even cheered at the end. We then came back for a delicious dinner at les Elfes with a table football competition where all the campers got competitive.

Monday 13th Feb – Skiing, Shopping, Torchlight walk

CRANS MONTANA: Second day on the slopes for our school from Dubai and all the groups, even the beginners made it up the mountain, which is an amazing effort on just the second day skiing! All the instructors are really impressed with the quick pace of the campers and hopefully this enthusiasm will continue throughout the rest of the week! As it was a lovely bluebird day, the campers had a nice picnic on the terrace which was enjoyed by all!

After skiing, the campers had a chance to do a bit of shopping and this evening was a lovely torchlight walk around the lake.

               

VERBIER

Today has been super hot and sunny and the children have all enjoyed themselves out on the mountain. They were very eager this morning, with their ski gear on ready to go! Our beginners on Les Esserts are doing fantastic and they can now control their turns and will hopefully progress up to the blue slops tomorrow afternoon. Our intermediate and high level skiers and snowboarders covered a lot of ground, following their instructors, working on parallel turns and carving.

This afternoon we had plenty of activities on offer to keep up with our energetic groups. We had sledging, swimming and snowman building for our school groups and our individuals had languages and sledging, whizzing down and having fun!

This evening our school groups all joined together to take part in a music video whilst the individuals got stuck in with some cooking and the brain puzzling escape rooms.

10th January – Skiing, Snowboarding, Swimming, Clubs Night, Escape Rooms

We have had a brilliant day here at Les Elfes, with plenty of skiing, snowboarding and fun and games. Despite the cold, snowy conditions all our children have had great time out on the mountain and our instructors are very impressed with the progression of their groups. We have some high level skiers and boarders this week so standards have been great and their ability to learn new techniques has been outstanding. Our groups have covered a lot of the mountain and our beginners who are on Les Esserts are close to joining the other groups at the top which is great news.

Back at camp there were plenty of activities on offer, including trips into the village, swimming, chilling out in front of a movie or playing games. Tonight was clubs night so the children had the chance to sign up to our different activities. Some opted to cook and the food tasted and smelt amazing, whilst others put their brains into gear designing bridges and taking part in some tricky problem solving games and challenges. Our individuals had the chance to try out the Escape Rooms in town, with only 60 minutes to break out you have to really work as a team and think outside the box!!

9th January – Skiing, Snowboarding, Arrivals, Torch Light Walk, Escape Rooms & Music Video

The energy around camp this morning was amazing, all the children were up and eager to get back out on the mountain with their instructors again. After a delicious breakfast they got their ski gear on and headed out to the buses which were waiting to take them to the slopes. The beginners went back to Les Esserts to continue learning important skills such as stopping and turning and hopefully they’ll be progressing up the mountain in no time. Our more advanced group explored new pistes and had great fun learning new tricks from their instructors, who are impressed with their ability.

We welcomed a new school today who are here for 5 days, who we got to meet back at camp after their afternoon skiing and snowboarding. They were full of smiles and stories of their day.

Tonight there were many activities on offer for our Individuals and Schools. Some had the chance to have a go at the brilliant Escape Rooms in town, where each group are given 60 minutes to try and break out of a room. It is very challenging but many groups succeeded so well done to them. On camp we also had a torch light walk and a music video, full of dancing and singing! Everyone is excited to see the finished video at prize giving on Friday.
