Winter Camp 2020

3 Week Minimum Stay


Our Special Winter Experience

Each year, Surval Winter Camp welcomes girls to join Surval Montreux from 3 weeks to a full term.  

Surval Winter Camp is a world-class experience packed full of learning, self-discovery, and adventure, making friends from all over the world and memories for life!

Surval Winter Camp, exclusively for girls aged 12-19, combines academic and physical challenges in a beautiful region of Switzerland.  Those who join our Winter Camp become members of the international Surval Montreux community, and are fully integrated into school life,  enjoying a multitude of clubs, activities, and experiences, studying French, English and some High School classes, all with students who are here for the full school year.  An extra language can be studied if desired, or additional lessons in a school subject if required. 

There are plenty of opportunities for skiing and snow sports with two ski days each week and busy activities and weekend programmes.  The whole school takes to the slopes on Thursday afternoons (Ski Thursdays) and we also offer weekends at Gstaad, Verbier or elsewhere.  Highly qualified instructors teach our girls skiing and snowboarding in small groups based on ability.

Our Winter Camp programme includes:

• Languages: English and French

• Academic and Cultural classes

• Savoir-vivre:  Culture, Customs, and Etiquette

• Snowsports and winter activities

• Use of The Magic Pass season lift-pass (accepted at 30 Swiss resorts)

• Trips and Excursions in Switzerland and abroad

Evening activities take place within the resort which has many facilities in a spectacular and safe location.

Anzère is equipped with:

  • 14 different installations
  • 1 cable car
  • 3 chair lifts
  • 7 T-bar lifts
  • 3 conveyor carpets covering 58 km of the ski resort.
  • 11 km of the slopes are covered by 120 snow cannons. 

The end of Ski Week is celebrated with an awards ceremony and traditional Swiss fondue.  Ski Week is a highlight of our Winter Term and a must for those with a passion for snow!
