TELEGIETTES & the ski resort of Les Giettes

This charming private ski resort is located between 1300m and 1800m of altitude, just above the city of Monthey.

The Auberge de Chindonne is located on the slopes, between the two ski lifts (you can ski in / ski out!) with catering and accommodation possible for groups of any size.

MAKING A CHANGE —

What is the CFSJ?

In 2004, the charming ski resort of Les Giettes was revived after abandonment. After incredible efforts to revive this resort (ski lifts, snowshoe trails, and marked walks, etc.), we created our non-profit association in 2017 with 3 main goals:
Since then, we have continued to grow and develop our activities. We need support to continue offering these services to as many people as possible.

MOUNTAIN SAFETY CAMPS with SAFEALTITUDE —

Avalanche hazard prevention center

Along with SafeAltitude, we have developed our area with infrastructure to support educational camps for children and adults with courses on avalanche risk awareness, accident prevention, and an exercise area for avalanche dog training.

The goal of our camps is to raise awareness on the environmental impact of mountain sports in nature and educate participants on what to do in case of an avalanche.

Week-long camps are available for children ages 7 to 15 and training weekends for adults are available as well.

THE TRAINING AND COURSES —

What to expect

We offer an avalanche prevention center, a private ski area, a 75-person hostel with food and beverage options to accommodate participants who wish to learn about mountain hazard prevention. 

On our private estate you can participate in practical and theoretical exercises, over 1 or more half-days, on the following topics:

SafeAltitude – Who we are

SafeAltitude was born in the spirit of Alain Bosco, founder of the company Evazion – Number 1 of children’s holiday camps in Switzerland – active since 1996 – which welcomes more than 1,500 children per year for weeks of activities in nature.

Together we are creating the “Association les Cerniers en Faveur de la Jeunesse et du Sport” (CFJS), which promotes free skiing for all by opening the doors of its ski lifts free of charge every weekend. 

He launched SafeAltitude in 2019, as a company active in raising awareness of avalanche dangers, and which promotes the discovery of and respect for nature in the mountains.

SafeAltitude has joined forces with the Auberge de Chindonne and the Télégiettes estate to offer unique training & stays in Switzerland.
