Ski Le Gap gave me the opportunity to travel, learn a new skill, and meet people from all over the world. I gained even more confidence as a person than I already had, as well as gaining a thirst to travel to different parts of the world. The experience is definitely one of a kind in its class. The way in which you live train and play forms a real sense of a small community. I didnt have one student or staff member on Ski le Gap that I couldn’t relate to in some way or have a conversation with.
