24th to 31st MARCH 2018

Dear Summerfieldian skiers,

Welcome to the official page for the 54th Summerfieldian Ski Trip in the beautiful village of Courchevel 1850, France.

LA POMME DE PIN ACCOMMODATION
The 53rd Summerfields Ski Trip will be hosted at La Pomme de Pin, a four-star hotel in Courchevel 1850.

The ski trip will be hosted at La Pomme de Pin, a four-star ‘ski in, ski out’ hotel located in the heart of the Courchevel 1850 village, offering perfect access to the slopes. In addition, the hotel boasts a beautiful south-facing terrace on the 5th floor with extraordinary views of the Alps.

You can enjoy the Indian camp, ski lessons and chess tournaments traditionally characterised during the week-long SummerFields event, and their friendly staff will ensure you are comfortable and cared for throughout your stay.

Spa
La Pomme de Pin is delighted to welcome you to their Spa – a haven for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Whether you’re a hardened skier looking for injury management and prevention, or a non skier looking for a little pampering, our expert team are here to help.

Teresa is a specialised British Chartered, and French Certified Physiotherapist and expert Massage Therapist. Her magic hands will not only fix you when you’re broken, but can ease away any daily niggles or tension. Claire is a fully trained Beautician ready to pamper and relax you with her specialist range of treatments and wonderful
nourishing organic Neals Yard products.

You can also indulge in the jacuzzi, sauna and/or steam bath – all perfect after a hard day skiing. Please note: for health and safety reasons, no children under 14 years old are allowed in the fitness centre, with or without parental supervision.

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

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 24 2018, returning at a similar time from Geneva airport on March 31 2018.

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:

  • Saturday 24th of March 2017, British Airways flight BA0728. Departs Heathrow 09.35, Arrives Geneva 12.25.
  • Saturday 31st of March 2017, British Airways flight BA0729. Departs Geneva 13.10, Arrives Heathrow 13.55.

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 SummerFields 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 2017 and look forward to welcoming you all to La Pomme de Pin!

Yours ever,

Rob Lagden and Pandy Stoop
