Overview
More
Prato Borni Ski School stands for tradition and quality. The name Prato Borni itself is the ancient latin name of Zermatt. Founded by local ski instructors and mountain guides who belong to the history of Zermatt, this exclusive ski school is well known for providing high level guidance and instruction for discerning clients who aspire to improve their technique and style. We offer private lessons for adults and children with pick-up service from the hotel in the morning. Each lesson is tailor-made and unique. Our priority is tapping into the desires of our high profile clientele as to bring a lasting smile on their face. As the ski equipment and techniques evolve, we must also adapt to better anticipate and exceed expectations. Our success has relied in large part upon our understanding of our guests, many of whom equally enjoy gourmet-skiing, as Zermatt is the well-known gourmet stronghold in the Alps. Our qualified ski instructors will show you the impressive ski area connected to Cervinia-Valtournenche (Italy) by choosing the best slopes and the finest restaurants where to enjoy culinary lunches. We can help you to enhance your technique and refine your style with a wide range of exercises and tricks. On request we'll give you tips on how to tackle bumps, yellow slopes or master the champagne-powder snow.

Teenagers had 3 hours snowboarding lessons each day, and they were very happy with the teacher, Stefan. School is flexible if you need to cancel also.
