Hey everyone !


Since we know that you chose Switzerland for its mountains and ski resorts, we decided to make your wishes come true : we proudly present THE ski weekend of the semester ! This semester’s ski weekend will take place in Zinal, Val d’Anniviers.


During this weekend, you will not only be able to ski in Zinal and Grimentz, but also relax during the after-ski with some delicious mulled wine or hot chocolate, dance your night away at our amazing party Saturday and spend some quality time with your beloved friends!


On Friday night, we will have a chill evening program with a blind test contest (with a surprise prize at the end) and drinks, without finishing too late so that you will be fresh and ready for a whole next day on the slopes !


On Saturday, after enjoying some hours on the slopes and magnificent views of snowy mountain tops, we will welcome you back at the chalet, with hot beverages to warm you up, before dinner, followed by a "Sparkle and Shine" themed party, so don’t forget to bring your best outfit !


On Sunday, before returning to our beautiful city of Lausanne, you will be able to enjoy either a second day of skiing or sledding. If neither of these are to your taste, you will also have the choice of visiting beautiful Grimentz. 


If it is your first time on skis, do not fret ! We provide you ski lessons with professional instructors.  We strongly encourage you to take ski lessons if you’re a beginner or if it’s been a long time since you last went skiing! It is important for safety reasons and so that you learn enough basic skills to be able to enjoy your time on the slopes more !  You will be on your own on the slopes so without the lessons no one will be able to help you in case you are struggling (and if you spend the entire day laying on the snow, you’ll be cold and mad at us and we will be very sad)


More information about ski rental (which will be deals with the ESN card), the ski resort, the transportation and more are coming. If you have any burning questions before then, you can contact us with the following address : esnskiweekend@gmail.com


We hope you are as excited as we are for this awesome weekend !


See you soon,


Your devoted Zinal Organizing Committee heart
