In co-operation with H2o-Tours in Germany, Van Schoor’s Tours (Pty) Ltd./Pangea Trails is finally able to offer an unmatched Snow & Travel experience for the South African and global travel market. Aimed at young and hip ski- and snowboard-lovers, this travel package is also suitable for the more seasoned snow lovers and even families. The on-site support of H2o team members and the self-catering accommodation we offer results in a well-rounded and affordable winter travel experience.
St. Francois Longchamp is the place to be for the upcoming season. Great value for money, amazing skiing resort and only 2 hours away from the international airport of Geneva. With around 150 km of slopes St. Francois offers a chilled and cosy alpine atmosphere to have lots of fun in the snow! : )
The resort – Le grand domaine
Around the 2800m high “Cheval Noir” you will find more than 150km of slopes, more than 50 modern skiing lifts, more then 80 slopes and just everything what you need for boarders and skiing fans.
Speciality: The skiiing resort is connected with another resort called Valmorel and hence stretches over several beautiful valleys while offering everything from beginner slopes with wide runs to steep pro slopes and powder runs. Basically everything a French skiing resort has to offer you will find here. The connection to Valmorel goes via Col de la Madeleine which is known from the Tour de France – just that you will cross the pass with a board or ski at this time of the year. Exactly around the pass route you will find the best off-piste slopes ... and those are mostly still fresh and untouched as there are only 2 entry points for riders into the 2 resorts. Hence the resorts, skiing lifts and slopes always stay relativey uncrowded and chilled. Just as we like it ...
Be clever and fill the apartment
The cheapest rates you will get are when you fill a apartment, so get your friends and family members to help you achieve this. Remember that in the end you spend most of the day on the slopes surrounded by mighty mountain peaks.
For those of you who know France and the apartment style accommodation will know that you should not expect too much luxury. But we are coming clearly to snowboard and ski instead of a wellness holiday.
Our village – St Francois Longchamp
As always in France we lodge directly next to the slopes so that you can jump more or less instantly from your room onto the slopes in the morning. The town itself offers everything we need: cool bars and restaurants for everyone who is not keen on cooking on 1.650 m, a little indoor swimming pool & sauna surrounded by might mountain scenery.
