The Ski Club of Great Britain will offer cut-price instructor-lead on and off-piste ski guiding in France this winter.

The Ski Club was last winter forced to withdraw its popular Leading service following a court judgement that ruled it unlawful in France. The ruling is being appealed, but until the matter is resolved, the Ski Club has teamed up with ski school Evolution 2 to offer the service to their members in 11 different French ski resorts.

Last year, the Ski Club replaced its resort Leaders with ‘Ambassadors’ who socialised with members but did not ski with them. This season, Evolution 2’s fully qualified instructors will legally lead, guide and instruct in Alpe d’Huez, Argentière, Avoriaz, Courchevel, Flaine, La Plagne, Méribel, Les Arcs, Tignes, Val d’Isère and Val Thorens.

Each resort will have a programme of at least three sessions a week designed to suit a variety of member standards, adapted to their needs and snow conditions — at a cost of £10 for a half day session and £20 for a full day.

The new programme will be funded by the Ski Club. Members can secure their place by paying a nominal booking fee of £10 for the half day session’s and £20 for a full day.  This will contribute towards the additional administration costs in providing this service to members.

Ski Club CEO Frank McCusker said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Evolution 2 to offer this new instructor-led guiding service for our members, bringing back the ‘skiing with the Club’ element which we all know is a highly regarded member benefit. 

“Evolution 2 is a renowned ski school with an excellent reputation that shares our passion and vision of creating the best on snow experiences for our members.

There will be no changes to the Leader programmes that the Ski Club operates as part of their Freshtracks holidays and in the other 17 resorts across Europe and North America.
