Lovell Mountain Lodge
Lovell Mountain Lodge is quite simply unique; there is no other way of describing it. The Lovell family have owned and operated the prestigious John F. Kennedy International School and Summer Camp in Saanen-Gstaad, Switzerland for over 40 years. Now known as Lovell Camps, they have expanded their recreational and learning opportunities by opening up a winter camp program which offers a wide variety of winter sports and a whole host of fantastic and fully supervised activities.
The team of international staff members are either professional educators, qualified and skilled international and Swiss ski and snowboard instructors or experienced camp counsellors. With up to 25 hours of on hill instruction per week, young people of all abilities from beginner to expert skiers and snowboarders will have the opportunity to learn and to develop their skills in racing, freestyle and free-ride as well as in other disciplines including telemarking. The staff training programme emphasizes the need for close supervision, safety and awareness of the needs of each individual child.
The ‘ski in, ski out’ facilities are located in Schönried, Switzerland and housed in the Mountain Lodge, located 600 metres from the Schönried train station and the cable car, in the heart of the world-renown ski resort of Gstaad.
The Mountain Lodge has 18 rooms which all offer en-suite facilities and there is a spacious kitchen and dining room, a large terrace and an outdoor play area – perfect for sledding! It is outfitted with relaxing lounge areas, video room, equipment storage area, and free internet access and parking
