This is our annual European ski event that aims to assemble a small, elite group of global business executives with one common goal: to learn from one another’s personal and professional experiences against the inspiring backdrop of the French Alps. Think fantastic people and networking in a fun and memorable environment – combined with the opportunity to partake in some of the best skiing and riding that Europe has to offer.


Waking up looking out at the mountains from your room at the Relais & Châteaux hotel is just the beginning of your break at Les Barmes de l’Ours. Designed with high-quality, authentic materials, the hotel wins over its guests thanks to its privileged situation at the foot of the mythical Face de Bellevarde, its artist’s soul and its family atmosphere.

Val d’Isère in France’s Upper Tarentaise Valley is one of the world’s most celebrated ski resorts, renowned for its extensive ski area and challenging off-piste terrain, high-quality accommodation and very lively apres ski. Perfect for keen intermediates and advanced-level skiers and snowboarders. It constitutes one half of one of the world’s largest linked ski domains, the Espace Killy (named in honour of local World Cup and triple Olympic ski champion Jean-Claude Killy), which covers the combined ski areas of Val d’Isère and Tignes. The village sits at a snow-sure altitude of 1,850m, at the head of the Tarentaise Valley in France’s Savoie departement; the local microclimate here has consistently delivered an accumulated snowfall total in excess of six metres most winter seasons, making the resort a sound choice for anyone planning early and late-season ski trips.

What is the cost?

For invited guests, TransPerfect covers round-trip coach airfare, lodging, airport transfers in Val d’Isère and all organised activities and meals, including lift tickets and gear rentals (should you choose to rent). You are responsible for getting yourself to and from your home airport and all on-site incidentals. That’s it!

How do I get there?

International guests will fly to Geneva, Lyon, Chambery or Grenoble airports, where you will be met at arrivals by a driver to take you to the hotel. Those travelling from within France or neighbouring Switzerland can drive, or take the train to Bourg-Saint-Maurice where a car will be waiting for you.

What’s the agenda?

There is no structured agenda; however, we will arrange for several focused roundtable discussions on topics in varying areas. What you get out of this event is directly proportional to what you put in. The people we invite, both on the client side and on TransPerfect’s side, all have very valuable information to share, and over the course of our several days together, we hope that you’ll seek out as many others as you can.

Is this just a social event?

No, it’s a business event. Just because there isn’t a formalised all-day agenda of sessions doesn’t mean that the primary purpose of this event isn’t learning. We expect all in attendance to come prepared to share their knowledge and learn from other client attendees and TransPerfect team members, be that at the roundtable discussions, on the ski lifts or over meals/drinks.

Can I bring my spouse/significant other/a guest?

No, sorry. As an immersive business networking event, our primary goal is to ensure as much interaction and relationship-building among the group as possible. While we’re confident that your spouse (or other guest) is a lovely person, we’d strongly prefer that you attend this event on your own.

What is the dress code?

As with most resort towns, ski gear is completely acceptable almost anywhere – for non-mountain activities, feel free to pack casual attire such as denim, sweaters, etc. Be sure to pack layers!

Do I need to bring my own equipment?

No. You certainly can bring your own gear, but if you need rentals, all you need to do is let us know in advance.

Come and spend a long weekend with TransPerfect and some of our friends.

We promise it will be worth your time.
