SKI GROUP LESSON
A group lesson to discover all the richness of skiing as you progress through the Leagues, improving your skills and technique while respecting your individual development.
Group ski lessons are designed for children aged 4 and over.
For older children, beginners or more experienced skiers, we recommend private lessons or personalized sessions in Freestyle, Freeride or Competition.
THE SWISS SNOW LEAGUE
For beginners, the Blue League is the place to learn the basics of skiing. For intermediate skiers, the Red League consolidates what you've already learned, and for advanced skiers, the Black League is the place to go.
We also offer SWISS SNOW ACADEMY group lessons for those who have reached the BLACK PRINCE level.
As for the youngest skiers, from the age of 3, they can familiarize themselves with the snow and learn the rudiments of skiing at our snow gardens in Grimentz or Zinal.
Each level is validated after 4 to 5 days of lessons, and the student receives a logbook and a medal.
As an optional extra, you can take out ESS COURS PROTECT insurance.
