International School Basel – Thank You & See You Next Year!
February 20th, 2017
We have been welcoming International School Basel to ski camp each winter since 2011! This year we were so happy to partner with them again, in an even larger capacity. We welcomed three different year groups over a three-week span in January. Each week there was between 80 – 100 people at the Mountain Lodge. We were treated with fresh snow, cold temperatures and beautiful sunny days!
The children’s enthusiasm and excitement for the program was second to none. All campers fully immersed themselves in the Lovell Camps program right from the get go, both on and off the ski slopes. Read more…
Ski & Snowboard Camp
February 7th, 2017
Most people think of ski camps as trips organized through schools, and whilst Lovell Camps certainly provide many school ski camps, we also offer ski camp for individual children. Small ski/snowboard groups, with dedicated, experienced and highly qualified instructors, plus a comprehensive after ski and evening program, means your child is engaged from the moment they are picked up from the airport or dropped off at camp. The Saanenland has over 220km of pistes, and our ski in/ski out Mountain Lodge is right next to one of the many wide, scenic blue runs ideal for beginners and intermediates and providing access to the reds and blacks for our more experienced skiers and snowboarders.
