  • Britt

    For me, ski life in Chamonix has been before and after I joined the club. I have learned new skills and met new and old friends. Nearly every day if I am out skiing I meet someone I know, or have been skiing or climbed with! It's so fun

    Sandra

    I’m all in - what you ladies create and organize gives me immense joy and makes me feel like a 20 yr old again - so thank you to all of you x

    Nicola

    The WMC rocks and is just the best! Such a great way to get out on the mountain with expert advice to work on and really feel like you’ve improved afterwards and have fun with friends! You are SUCH an amazing teacher. Patient, supporting, encouraging and importantly pushing us out of our comfort zone so thank you again. So happy I did it. Booking on for the next one now!

    Amélie

    FLIGHT & TRANSFER INFO

    • We suggest flying to an Italian airport (the closest to Cervinia being Torino or Milano Malpensa). Geneva is still an option but you are then taking into account three countries (landing in Switzerland, transiting through France and entering Italy).
       

    • We are not offering airport transfers but we are at your disposal for any queries you may have about organizing one. We can connect you with others joining the trip to organize a shared transfer.

  • YESSSS it's SUMMER TIME!

     

    We have some social rides and skill sessions on bikes, on foot, rock and glacier coming up to help you enjoy all that summer has to offer here in the Alpes!

     

    All with like-minded ladies and female guides/instructors who are super passionate about where we live and what we do.

    Technical Session - with Instructors

    Hone your tecshnique and skills

    Spend the morning with a top female instructor who will help you develop your skiing over the season. Tell us your goals and we help get you there. Whether you want to master the moguls or crush your carve turn. We have you covered. Spending some dedicated time working on certain elements of your skiing in all terrain is a game changer. Each session has a specific focus depending on snow conditions.

    Mountain Skills - with Guides

    Learn how to play and travel off piste

    Going off-piste or into the higher mountains brings with it, its own set of skills. Not only are there variations in style but the risks require knowledge in snowpack analysis, avalanche procedures, glacier travel, to name a few... Once you know how to approach the off-piste correctly the fun can really begin with ski touring trips and epic adventures to new terrain. Boy, do we girls have fun!

    Cross Country Ski Sessions

    Slide and glide with style and grace!

    Ski de Fond is a great way to travel through the mountains and get a full body workout, all at the same time! There’s 2 techniques which use different kit - classic and skating. They are both technical and great fun. Our sessions, with inspiring female instructors, have you covered from starting skinny ski sliding for the first time to going on an adventure and traversing a mountain range!
