Love God + Love Skiing = Altitude Mission

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

Isaiah 52:7

Chalet Altitude is run on a not-for-profit, cost-only basis and we don’t want the price of the season to be prohibitive, so if you need financial help please do get in touch, though we would expect you to raise part of the funds yourself, through working and through fund-raising. 

You will be doing mission work, so you may want to apply to your church and church members for financial assistance, or there are grants available from Christian funding organisations. 

We are heavily subsidising the cost of the season and will cover that cost by match-funding what you pay.  If your church or family are able to help with this match-funding, this will help ensure the sustainability of Altitude Mission for future years.

Please apply to us as soon as possible by sending an email with a little about yourself, your Christian journey, and why you’d like to join Altitude Mission.  Please specify whether you’d like to join the Ski Instructors Course. 

Please contact us for more information, and see our T&Cs for payment details.
