Ten80 Thinking 

Heli-paret - Winter corporate hospitality
Torchlit heli-paret descent

Finding the right resort and accommodation is always the crucial starting point. Chamonix was the ideal ski base being only 60 minutes from Geneva and renowned for large and wide breadth of ski terrain and snow reliability.

Securing the right chalet (a hotel would not deliver the required intimacy for this event) was the next challenge. We chose a chalet that we have worked closely with since its creation a couple of years ago. The local architect is young but already has an impressive reputation and has made his mark with this ground breaking 'diamond design'.

Using an events company renowned for top level service, our client did not need to concern themselves with any of the details. Ten80 Events hosted throughout, on the slopes and in the evening, ensuring the best VIP areas in the bars and clubs. As for the evening event, nothing compares to our signature activity, heli-paret.
