Why is skiing in France an innovative idea for team building? Firstly, if you are looking to set challenges for your team, singularly and together, then learning to ski is going to be one of the hardest that some of them have faced.

For intermediate skiers, there is the chance to show off blossoming skills that they might be better at than their manager, or even the big boss. And for the seasoned skiers, there is the challenge of waiting for and supporting the less confident skiers in the group.

And learning opportunities don’t stop there. Back at the ski chalet France, you are responsible as a team for tidying up, cooking, and doing dishes.
