This weekend the winter season has officially started in Val d'Isère with an incredible amount of snow and piste conditions that can compete with some of the nicest weeks of winter. The cookery school graduates are expecting their first guests on December 4th - the first big milestone to conquer this season! But the next milestone won't be too far away: with Christmas approaching fast, there will be another big event coming up - Christmas Turkey with all the trimmings and lots of excited families who will spend some of the most precious times of their year with YSE Ski. If you haven't found the perfect Christmas present yet or want to treat yourself to something special, you should make sure to be on the recipient list of our newsletter and follow our Advent Calendar!


Christmas is the time of giving. Our graduates will treat the YSE Ski guests with excellent food and house wines, the YSE Ski chalet girls will spoil them with outstanding service, and the YSE Cookery School is going to treat you with extra special treats if you decide to book a cookery course for next summer for yourself or as a present.

We've created our very own Advent Calendar which we are going to publish every day with our newsletter and on our Facebook page from December 1 until December 24. Each day we will to offer you a little present that will come with your booking if you book on that same day.


The presents we put in our calendar are as varied as the summer season in Val d'Isère: a bottle of champagne, a helicopter tour around the Espace Killy, a free stay for a friend for a week, or an 8 course dinner at the Atelier d'Edmond are just some of the surprises we have in the mix if you decide to book while our advent calendar is up and running.

The nice thing about our Advent Calendar is that every "door" has an unlimited amount of presents! Whether you book for yourself or for a group of five - every person whose booking we receive on that day will get the same add-on.

Some of our presents are more suitable for people who have their own transport, some of them are ideal for students who bring a non-cooking partner and for others you might need to leave some significant space in your luggage, so you can actually take your present home!!

As you would imagine, our Advent Calendar offers can't be used in conjunction with any offers and discounts. But we believe that we have put together such a nice variety of pre-Christmas presents that it doesn't need anything in addition to make your stay with us any more special!
