  • HOW IT WORKS

    We've got a top notch program planned!

    Technical Session - with Instructors

    Hone your technique 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.

    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!

    Summer Sports - with Guides

    We bring the adventure, you bring the suncream!

    A summer schedule full of opportunities to keep our winter community connected and have fun in the sun. We organise road bike meetups, sport climbing days, alpine mountaineering, and hiking tours.

  • WHO ARE YA?

    By Women for Women

    Our Mission

    Provide every woman with the opportunity to thrive on the mountain. Support the development of skills on and off the piste.

    Our Standard

    Every woman in Chamonix has their own story, they are CEO's of business, digital nomads, transfer drivers, bar staff, chalet maids and also just rolling through for a visit. For this reason we always want to remain affordable so that no matter the situation any woman can come along.

    Our "Love It!" Guarantee

    The women's mountain club Chamonix is run by women for women. We provide only the best instructors and guides. We listen to our members needs. We love what we do. So will you.
