One-Day Ski Patroller
Behind the scenes
Imagine being the first to carve through pristine slopes, enjoying freshly groomed snow that has yet to see the day’s skiers. Such pleasures are typically reserved for our ski patrol, who get to open the domain each morning before the crowds arrive. But this season, they’ve chosen to share this exclusive experience, inviting you to witness the behind-the-scenes of their profession, while indulging in the untouched beauty of the slopes.
An early rise will get you to the snowfront, where the head of the ski patrol or his deputy awaits with a traditional Savoyard breakfast to start the day right. Once fuelled up, your task is crucial: ensuring the safety of the slopes before the rush of skiers descends. To aid in your ‘One-Day Ski Patroller’ adventure, a range of equipment is at your disposal, with chairlifts and newly groomed pistes all set to help you fulfil your mission.
