  • We spend some wonderful days in Chamonix. Staying at the Chalet les Pelerins was one of the reasons that our vacation was great. The place is comfortable, clean, and adorable. The staff, Lynsay in particular, was so helpful in every way.

  • Amazingly friendly and welcoming staff. Breakfasts were great. Good location right near bus stop and/or just a short walk into the centre of town.
    Alice, February 2019
  • The location was perfect. Friendly staff and delicious breakfast. The chalet is small and the rooms compact. But it's just a few minutes walk into Chamonix and very close the the bus stop which serves most of the lifts. For the other lifts you just need to change bus or it's a short walk to the main...

  • Excellent accommodation with a wonderful ambiance. It was like home from home. Nothing was to much trouble, if you required anything you only needed to ask and they will try to accommodate your request. We would have loved to have stayed longer.

  • Staff / owners, breakfast, Chamonix were great. I went with my son (16) and we walked into town each night to eat out. It was brilliant for bed and breakfast and has bus stops right outside for access to all ski areas.

Special weeks created by the team that run Action Outdoors (UCPA UK). We are aiming at two groups of two levels per week to allow a small group of Off-Piste skiers to enjoy the very best skiing around the Chamonix Valley in addition to improve your skills and technique in various terrain and snow conditions.

The key to a successful week is flexibility
We have maximum of 6 clients guide/instructor ratio with our own transport to take you around France, Italy and Switzerland in search for the best snow. Uniquely for this program we have 5 guided days from 6 skiing days. We will decide during the week which days will be guided - this means we can choose the program by the weather and snow conditions. We strike a balance between instruction & guiding - very flexible and agreed between the group and our lead guide.

Lead Guide/Instructor
Seb Cazorla - UAIGM High Mountain Guide & Full Diplome French Ski Instructor. Seb has been teaching skiing for 20 years and has been guiding for 9 years and is only 41 years young. He has an amazing ability to improve our skiing by just making tiny changes to body movements. 

Watch Seb in action in the tutorial videos to the right.
