Stretch to the Skies

with our Alpine Pilates Retreat

How about stretching to the skies with our Alpine Pilates retreat where we combine the thrill of daily skiing with afternoon Pilates and Stretch to ease those muscles ready for the following day on the slopes. Set in the amazing resort of Les Arcs and the Paradiski Area there are slopes to thrill everyone from complete beginner to those who like it deep and off Piste. We’re also just a Vanoise away from Le Plagne for those more advanced skiers who want to make a full day of it. By day enjoy incredible views from the Glacier Du Valet or the winding tree-lined runs through the villages on a perfect bluebird day. Early evening then choose to soak away your muscles in the hot tub or swimming pool plus stretch away any remaining stresses in our Pilates sessions before enjoying Apres and a three course dinner with your fellow guests. This promises to be a week of fantastic skiing, much needed stretching, great company and a holiday to remember.
