Girl Gang Week! Morzine - French Alps (Chalet Skade)
- Duration: 7 Days (approx.)
- Location: Chemin de la Salle, Haute Savoie
- Product code: PCBLFH
We have always loved the (now famous) Girls Shred Days events happening in Avoriaz each winter. Run by Gypsy Snowboarding they have been brilliant days of community, camaraderie, encouragement, girl-gang fun…
Now HOFNAR has teamed up with the Gypsy crew to do this thing for the whole week, it’s gonna be epic. An all-inclusive, all-ability, all-girl-crew with no upper age limits shredding all over the Portes du Soleil.
Gypsy boss lady Sarah Fish describes The Shred with Gypsy…
“Our Gypsy Trips are focused on making the most out of the whole mountain, we want to give you the tools and confidence to tackle it all and look like a boss in the process. Our years of experience means we know exactly where to go each day to depending on the daily mountain conditions, finding the best snow, quietest slopes and all important restaurants for those much needed pit stops.
Remember it’s our job to set tasks to a mixed ability level, where within that task you can have an individual goal. Don’t sweat, you’ll never feel out of your depth, you’ll always work to your own comfort level, as we know when we can and can’t push you. Always working towards you reaching your full potential, our focus is always fun and what’s achievable.
You have 5 full days coaching with us over the course of your 6 days on the mountain. We like to give you one day off from our team so that you can take it easy and consolidate techniques and tricks learnt over the first few days. Remember this isn’t a boot camp, it’s your holiday and that body of yours might want a lazy hot tub day… did we mention,
you’ve got a hot tub in your chalet!”
