RISK ASSESSMENTSAll our activities and accommodation are risk assessed, and they are updated each year. Copies are available on request.

We take young peoples' welfare very seriously; all our staff, both UK and French, have a police check, and run activities in a supportive and encouraging manner that reflects their professionalism.

FINANCIAL SECURITYOur courses are run through Climb Trek Ski Limited which is ATOL and ABTOT bonded. They are the largest and most successful expedition provider in Europe.

Safety is at the heart of every activity we do, so our staff have the highest level of qualification in their chosen field. For example our mountain guides are all IFMGA Mountain Guides - the top qualification in the world for leading people in the mountains, whether skiing, climbing or mountaineering. Furthermore they are all full time outdoor professionals that work day in and day out teaching adventure sports and have been specifically selected for their ability to work with young people. Please see out staff page for more information.

BESPOKE COURSESAll our courses are bespoke. We ask you, the teacher, a few questions about the type of activities you want, and the goals of the school, and then put together a plan for your perfect course.


With the exception of one or two activities, our courses are open to all ages. Located in the adventure capital of Europe means we can easily adapt the level to suit your group and their needs to make sure the course is fun and safe.
