In the valley there are English, Russian, Spanish, Italian and obviously  French speaking ski instructors. Just check our links below and you'll find what you need.



You can take specialist lessons in skiing variants, such a telemark skiing, ski de fond, also known as cross-county skiing, freeride skiing  and advanced techniques to improve your ability and enjoyment.



Become a master skier. Essential if you want to become a ski-instructor and if you want to be that effortless super-cool skier who is always in perfect control and has the most pleasure at any time on any day.

The lessons will surprise you. At the beginning, and then returning to this throughout the course, your ski instructor will teach to precision skiing at very very slow speed. Its all about gaining the muscle memory to apply the perfect cut of a ski into the snow for any given manoeuvre. Once you master perfection on a blue piste, the process is covered again on red. The steeper the slope, the greater the level of precision. Its all starts on blue.
