As an experienced skier trying to help a beginner through the confidence stages I would suggest this school, on my seeing at least, would be great for male, gung ho types who can expect to progress to something new every time they go back up the gentle, meadow like piste. Then just wait for the weaker members of the school... More

Catered for all levels of competency and was extremely encouraging. Great facilities. There were only 9 in our group which was ideal. The slopes were not too busy that you had to que for ages. Ski Bistro is easy but not cheap.

My partner was in the beginners class and a good experience with Hannah. Slowly building confidence and taking in many of the different routes. I was... More

This Ski School has won awards for very obvious reasons. Excellent English speaking instructors who tailor the lessons to accommodate each pupil. We all learn at different rates (I'm definitely slower than most) but I came away knowing that within the 5 days I had improved from last time and had achieved more. My family were gobsmacked when I told... More

Some of the kids having lessons need to be controlled a bit more as they are in danger of being flattened by adult beginners on the magic carpets. PLEASE get the kids out of the way at the top of the magic carpets, and stop them pushing in at the bottom, as there were few mishaps involving them which could... More

My son picked it up well and then had a lesson with Marcus who took him on the slopes and he had a great time. Really impressed with both... More
