Ski and snowboard lessons
We know that lessons can make or break a ski holiday, so we are here to make sure you get the lessons you want.
We have links with two excellent ski schools in the valley, Ski Connections and New Generation, each offering different lesson formats and options.
Both of our ski schools have English ski instructors, so you can be sure you will not be struggling to keep up with your lesson.
Please contact us and we will be happy to arrange lessons as part of your tailor made holiday package.
Ski Connections is a British/French run ski and snowboard school based in Villeneuve which offers small group courses and private coaching as well as ski/snowboard hire for children, teenagers and adults at all levels.

New Generation Ski Levels
- This is my first time.
- I have tried skiing before, on snow or on a dry slope. I have started to snowplough turn on the nursery slopes.
- I am confident snowploughing on green and blue runs and my skis are sometimes parallel towards the end of the turn.
- I am nearly parallel but often still use a small plough to start the turn.
- I am a competent parallel skier and can ski red runs in good conditions but find I struggle when it gets bumpy, steeper, icy or the snow gets deep.
- I can ski all reds and get down most blacks as well, providing they’re not too steep or bumpy.
- I can ski most places. Black runs are no problem and I enjoy off-piste and itinerary runs.
