How do I meet up with the course?
This is held on Sunday evening in the downstairs bar at the Hotel Arbina at 5.30 promptly. This gives everyone the opportunity to meet the other members of the group, find out about how the ski courses work, where we meet and so on. This meeting is the official start of the course.
Where should I book accomodation?
You should book accommodation in Tignes le Lac (the centre) or Le Lavachet. Other areas such as Val Claret or the lower villages are not convenient for the courses. Please ask us if you aren't sure about location of accommodation as we can usually identify where it is.
Are there evening meetings during the week?
Apart from the Sunday introductory meeting, we have a debriefing session on the Friday evening, at 5.30.

Which lift pass do I need?
Please buy an Espace Killy ski lift pass, which covers both ski resorts, Tignes and Val D'Isere. You may find that your accommodation package offers a ski pass, but please check .
Is there any recommended ski hire?
We only recommend Ski Fast, Rue de la Poste, Telephone 0033 47 906 3344. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. They speak English. Ask for Jean-Charles and mention that you are attending an Ali Ross ski course.
When do I need to arrive at the resort for the skiing course?
Your travel arrangements should allow you to be in Tignes by Sunday afternoon at the latest. If you are delayed for any reason and can't attend the Sunday 5.30 ski course introduction meeting, please phone (0044)788 0551360.
Do I need any special equipment?
Yes - for Level 2 and Advanced ski courses, please bring transceivers and rucksacks. We supply transceivers if you don't already have them, but it is well worth the relatively modest outlay to have your very own one, which you can practise with if you know someone who has one too, to play hide and seek around the house on those long winter evenings.
How can I pay for the ski course?
We accept pounds sterling by inter bank electronic transfer or by cheque. An e-invoice will be sent giving payment details
If you pay in Euros, the amount due depends on the exchange rate at the time of booking, so please enquire if you are paying from the Eurozone.
