European Snowsport - best for private lessons

With ski schools in six different resorts across France and Switzerland, European Snowsport (ES) will make sure you make the most of your time on the mountain. They have a small yet experienced team of highly-qualified instructors offering private skiing & snowboarding lessons as well as off-piste tuition.

Lessons are completely tailored to the individual or group of friends; you choose the start time and location and whether you want a more technical lesson or just to explore the resort. Or perhaps try a little off-piste tuition, improving your technique in variable terrain and powder whilst exploring new parts of the resort.

Ski Cool - best for specialist courses

Founded in 1929, the St. Moritz Ski School is the oldest and most traditional ski school in Switzerland. Priding themselves on tradition, expertise and responsibility, the St. Moritz Ski School provides tuition in skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and telemark for groups and individuals.

Children between the ages of three and four can enjoy lessons in the Snowli Kids Village in St. Moritz/Celerina which is equipped with a magic carpet, carousel and children’s button lifts. Children from the age of five upwards partake in group classes aimed at developing their skills with a healthy dose of fun added in too. A free pick-up service is offered for children - in St. Moritz a horse-drawn sleigh transports children to the ski school at Salastrains and back. In Celerina and Samedan, it’s a bus. Semi-private classes are also possible; with a maximum of six participants, these small groups receive more individual attention and a pick-up service from the valley station of the Signalbahn cable car.
