Prepare for your trip

To make your stay in the mountains a success

Here are a few tips for planning and getting the most from your holiday:

1/ Take out appropriate insurance that covers all winter sports expenses (civil liability, credit cards to cover lift passes, Carte Neige, etc.)

2/ Make sure you have all the right clothing – and that it is good quality: anti UV goggles, high SPF sun-cream, warm, waterproof clothing, gloves, hats, scarves, tights, snow boots, ski helmet and back protector. And good quality, properly adjusted skiing equipment of the right size.
For the summer, good walking shoes, a well-balanced back-pack, windcheater, etc.

3/ Prepare physically and develop your muscles ahead of your stay: swimming, walking, cycling, climbing the stairs are all good preparation.

Once here, remember to do proper stretches and warm-ups before heading for the slopes.

4/ Get all booking paperwork ready in advance (accommodation, lift passes, ski hire, etc.)

5/ Think about your journey: check your vehicle: tyre pressures, fit snow tyres, or carry snow chains or socks. Practice fitting these items.
