On Wednesday 30th March we put together an exclusive opportunity for our guests, to take part in the La Rosière ESF Director’s Day. The idea was for our clients to discover the fantastic San Bernardo area in the company of a real expert – Simon Atkinson, who is the only English ESF director in the whole of the French Alps.

Simon held the session and gave the participants tips on how best to enjoy the ski area and the resort. There were a maximum of eight places available for the day, only accessible through booking with Peak Retreats. The group set off at 10 am, skiing over to Italy for a spot of lunch in a mountain restaurant.

The group thoroughly enjoyed their day, praising Simon for his passion and expertise on the area:

Extremely informative as well as being very good company’. The quality of the skiing was very high. Simon had us pretty much taking on all black runs in the resort including the women's downhill in Italy’. (Ed Laver)

Thoroughly enjoyed the day from start to finish. In particular the history of the area and the way you brought the stories to life. I loved standing on the run where you spoke about the women's downhill race. I think we all agreed that the racers are very brave!!!’ (Sean Ryan)
