I write to you with glad tidings, there is much to celebrate in the next few months, so please read on.
For many in this little alpine resort the start of the winter season is certainly the most exciting part of the year, Les Elfes Verbier is no exception. As the memories of a brilliant summer and autumn fade we look forward with eager anticipation, winters chill is starting to creep in, the mountains are crisp and the air is fresh, one can scarcely believe how quickly these frosty seasons come around. The lanscape changes its hue of greens to oranges and soon, the first snowfall will dust the peaks far and wide, anyhow, enough of of the georgraphy lessons.
Winter is coming soon
This Winter our Sessions begin on the 3rd of December and students can choose from wither one or two week sessions, details are on our website. Christmas week is something truly special on camp, with the international community we have getting involved in the positive atmosphere. Wether you celebrate Christmas or not, skiing and snowboarding on the 300km + slopes in the 4 Valley, or excursions to Montreux Christmas Market, there is much fun to be had.
Special New Year Sessions
New Year is just as fun, the resort is busy and bustling with holidaymakers from all over the world, and of course the mandatory firework displays! There is a cosmopolitan feel to Verbier that is quite unique and this is certainly captured in the Les Elfes festive spirit.
It is the international atmosphere at Les Elfes which makes the camp such a special place. It is a really significant experience for young people to travel away from home and to spend time with new friends from around the world. Our students come to us hoping to improve their languages, learn new ski or snowboard skills, but it is the friendships they take home with them that truly shape their time with us. Our language courses, ski and snowboard programmes and even our evening activities support our camp model of integration for all ages and ethnicities allowing our students to benefit from a melt-pot of cultural variety and to build bonds which will last a lifetime.
