December 5, 2023

Whether you're planning a team-building event or rewarding your employees with exceptional moments away from the office, organizing a corporate retreat can sometimes prove complicated. To make these moments unforgettable for your teams, you need to think of everything: location, accommodation, travel, activities, entertainment and so on. And what if we told you that the mountains were the best place to organize this type of event? We give you 4 good reasons to organize a ski seminar for your teams.

1. An ideal, magical place to offer your employees an unforgettable, relaxing & 100% natural break.

To get away from the office routine, it's essential to choose an atypical and exotic location. What could be better than a stay in the mountains for unforgettable moments in the great outdoors? As well as offering a fantastic natural setting in both summer and winter, the mountains abound in a multitude of varied activities to suit all tastes.

2. A responsible seminar destination accessible by train

A change of scenery also means a change of scenery, and given the realities of climate change, opting for a responsible destination is a real plus for limiting the environmental impact of your seminar and raising your employees' awareness. More and more resorts are taking steps in this direction. We recommend Les Arcs, one of the most responsible mountain destinations today, thanks to its commitments and the fact that it is 100% accessible by train and funicular.

3. A multitude of ideas for summer and winter seminars 

While it can sometimes be difficult to find ideas for your team-building activities, you'll just have to choose from the multitude of activities on offer in the mountains all year round, all in a magical setting:

  • ski
  • zip line
  • human curling
  • snowshoe walk
  • snake gliss
  • sled dog
  • introduction to biathlon
  • hiking
  • rafting, kayaking
  • climbing or via ferrata.

4. The perfect venue for a winter ski seminar

If you're organizing a winter seminar, a ski seminar can be an excellent idea for stimulating your teams. By opting for this type of seminar, you'll have access to a wide range of destinations, depending on which mountain range you prefer: Mont Blanc, the Pyrenees or the Vanoise.

Once again, we recommend Les Arcs, at the heart of the Paradiski ski area, with its 425 kilometers of slopes and optimal snow conditions. You can ski all three resorts linked by the world's largest cable car: the Vanoise Express. What's more, with 100 runs for all levels, including 200 kilometers of marked trails, breathtaking views of Mont Blanc and a wide range of high-altitude dance establishments, this resort is once again ideal for teams to enjoy the snow and spend some timeless moments together. As you can see, your teams won't be bored.

If you're looking for a turnkey holiday where all you have to do is set down your suitcases, our La Cachette hotel will be the ideal place via :

  • an ideal location in the heart of the Les Arcs resort and its activities, 
  • a fully-equipped auditorium with a capacity of 200 people, accessible on foot from the hotel in less than 3 minutes, for your conferences,
