Verbier self-catered gap courses




We firmly believe our gap courses are great value wherever you go and wherever you stay. After all we are committed to making sure you have an experience you never forget.

And this season we’re very happy to offer a course with a difference. Two differences actually…

You can join out January course and choose to take your BASI 1 and 2.

Or – if you fancy – you can also select the Combination package and take the BASI 1 then have five weeks of performance coaching and off-piste skiing.

But that’s not all.

Because from January 24th 2021 you can train with us and stay in the rather nice self-catered accommodation in Le Chable.

What’s not to like?



Great value ski gap courses


The answer is pretty simple: because it’s great and the accommodation is cheaper than the middle of Verbier.

Le Chable is the “big town” in the valley. Which isn’t very big by many standards but means it’s the capital of the Val de Bagnes.

It’s a firm favourite with seasonaires, locals and ski instructors who know that they can get the Verbier experience whilst saving some money on their rent.

As a result in the last ten years Le Chable has become a popular destination for anyone who loves skiing, loves Verbier, but wants to keep control of their budget.



Verbier GAP course accommodation ideas


Well, Nessie is an old traditional Swiss building that was renovated a few years ago and is now a very comfy four bedroom apartment in the middle of Le Chable.

It’s less than a ten minute walk from the lifts and perfectly placed to visit the bars of Le Chable – including the rather nice Baraka (where Lolo the boss has promised to start screening all the rugby matches) and the Brasserie where all the young locals hang out.

As it’s a self-catered option you’ll be responsible for all of your catering (and cleaning).

Although if you agree with our housemates we can arrange for a local chef to drop off hot home-made meals every so often to make sure you get a regular dose of healthy food, and we can also get a cleaner organised for you…




The chalet can take a maximum of eight trainees, with a small double bedroom, a large double bedroom that can be a twin room, a twin room and a bunk room.

So the rate depends on if you want single occupancy in a double room or if you’re sharing.

The twin rooms and the bunk rooms are £2,000 per person, and the double rooms are £2,750 or £3,000 for the ten weeks.

All of your utility bills are included including the Wifi. So the only costs you need to worry about are your weekly shop and your beer money…

The accommodation is a bolt-on to our standard Train-only package which is £4,900.




Just get in touch and we can get everything sorted for you.

Of course it depends on availability but if the worst happens and the chalet is full, then don’t worry – we have bags of contacts in resort and will be able to help you find a solution.
