What's new with Aim snowsports ski school in Les Arcs for 2016/2017
So, it's mid October and plans are in full swing for the winter ahead. So what's new you ask? Well, a fair bit.
Red is the colour
In Les Arcs / France's hierarchy, it sometimes seems that the boys and girls from the ski school in red seem to get preferential treatment... so if you can't beat them, join them, or just wear red I say!
So Rossi red it is, thanks to the awesome guys at Faction #factionskis we have a new uniform which will stand out in the middle of a snowstorm and hopefully get us free lunch in all the restaurants.
More instructors... Yeh!
Incredibly we've managed to find more ski and snowboard instructors to come and join the mission. Finding instructors of the right calibre to meet our requirements is one of our biggest challenges. We have found 5 instructors who we can say we are very pleased and proud to ski and work with.

Off-piste adventures in La Grave
This year we are running an off-piste Freeride camp in the fabled resort of La Grave. JP is working in partnership with Jagged Globe, an off-piste and mountaineering expedition specialist and will be assisted by a high mountain guide. Only experienced off-piste skiers need apply, those looking to hone their technique and explore the vast expert terrain offered by La Grave. No ski touring kit is required, just a taste for powder and nerves of steel. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Thankfully we can now offer group ski lessons to many of our clients who ask. Group ski lessons are a great fun way to share your learning journey with new people of a similar level. Aim snowsports adult groups are a maximum of 4 so personal attention is always given whilst the cost of the instructor is shared. Group lessons are subject to instructor availability and client demand so get in touch today to find out more.
This year we will have a sales counter based in Polaire Star, at the foot of the Les Arcs funicular for anyone wanting to discuss lessons face-to-face or pick up a brochure this season. Also, it's a great place to keep our skis and get them serviced so everyone's happy. Check out Polaire Star's website to find them.
That's it for now but we'll keep you updated with more of our news as the season approaches.
P.S. The snow has arrived.
