In order to ensure the best choice of rooms, we strongly advise families book directly with La Pomme de Pin reservations service.

Contact: +33 4 79 08 15 43 or pommedepin@manplus.com.

The 2018 accommodation prices arranged with La Pomme de Pin are based on full board occupancy. Lunch at the hotel is the best value in the resort! It is ideal especially for children who attend ski school as they will return to the hotel at lunchtime.

Travelling to Courchevel
We advise each family to organise their own flights. Flights will be with British Airways from London Heathrow to Geneva Airport, departing in the morning on March 30th, returning at a similar time from Geneva airport on April 6th 2019.

As always, we will arrange coach party transfers from Geneva Airport to Courchevel and return. The transfers are exclusively reserved for families travelling on the designated flights listed on our website. The coach transfer cost for a return journey will be €140 per person (€70 one way) and will need to confirm your place(s). If however, you do not have a reservation, we will not be able to guarantee you a seat.

Flight information:

  • Flight BA0728 Departure on 30/03 from Heathrow at 9h40, arrival at Geneva 12h25
  • Flight BA0729 Departure on 06/04 from Geneva at 13h10, arrival at Heathrow 13h55

Ski Hire
We have arranged ski and boot hire with La Pomme de Pin Hotel. Ski equipment is included in the room price. Helmet hire is also included for children. If adults wish to hire a helmet, an additional €25 will be required for the week. Additional insurance can be purchased on request (damage & lost ski equipment).

6 day ski lift and cable car passes for the whole Three Valleys ski area for both adults and children are included in the price of the room. Insurance is recommended and can be added at additional cost on request.

Ski Guides & Ski School
We have booked ski instructors for the children in the morning and are using the expertise of the Courchevel French Ski School once again this year. No matter the weather, instructors will be responsible for looking after the children. Parents who would like a guide/instructor for a morning or afternoon session can book through us. Please book as soon as possible as they are snapped up very quickly! All children aged 13 and below must attend Ski School groups that we organise. Elder siblings are also welcome.

What is not included
We recommend families organise their own travel insurance as we know that many of you have permanent annual arrangements. Drinks with meals and at the bar are not included except within the payable daily wine allowance.

ETHOS OF THE TRIP
Please may we reiterate what we have said in the past… The trip is organised by the Ski Trip Committee, but parents are responsible for their own children. We are happy to accept boys on their own without their parents, but another parent must agree to accept responsibility for the boy in question and include him in their own family. We will only accept non-Summerfieldians if they are siblings of current boys. Please be aware that this is not a School Trip. SummerFields School Trust will accept no responsibility or liability for any incidents occurring during the trip.

AND FINALLY…

The trip has aroused a great deal of interest and places therefore, are available on a first come, first served basis with priority given to those who have been on the trip before. We advise you to book EARLY!

Last year we had a long waiting list for the ski trip and some families, through lack of availability, were forced to book at nearby hotels at great expense!

To make the entire hotel exclusively for Summerfield’s, we strongly recommend families book early. It is very difficult for Management Plus Hotels to hold space for the SummerField’s group exclusively when the balance of the ski season at La Pomme de Pin, are fully booked. The majority of La Pomme de Pin’s clients book before June 30th and pressure mounts on Management Plus Hotel to release rooms to outside clients during the SummerField’s week.

In the meantime, we would like to express our appreciation to Nicholas and Katya Laing, Tour Elders for March 2018 and look forward to welcoming you all to La Pomme de Pin!

Yours ever,

Rob Lagden and Pandy Stoop
