Alpine Pros offers private lessons, either one-to-one or as a private group. Groups can consist of 6 adults of the same ability or 6 children of the same ability at no extra cost. We wouldn’t recommend mixed ability groups as we want everyone taught to get the most out of their private ski coaching.
Private Ski Lessons for Children, Adults, Groups and Private Guiding
Private ski lessons are a great way to learn for children who either need that little bit of extra help getting started, learning at their own pace or the child who has out-grown ski-school and want to progress quickly. We will ensure that they don’t adopt bad skiing habits. Skiing with kids is our kind of fun! They will learn all about snow craft, and mountain awareness as well as the basic skills to progress. Private ski lessons for children are all about building confidence with a sense of fun and adventure before hitting the jumps in the park and pulling off some 360s!
Benefit from the personalised and focused tuition of a private ski lesson in a no stress, friendly environment. If ski school isn't for you but you're looking for longer-term development, towards professional qualifications or just starting out. We can help you to reach your goals.
We offer a range of adult ski lessons from complete beginner (Level 1) right up to Skills & Development and Freestyle Coaching. Lessons can be on or off-piste with whatever focus you choose. Learn to master that carve turn you’ve been hankering over or let us guide you on an off-piste adventure.
Adult group lessons are great value for money, and a brilliant way for solo travellers, a bunch of friends or couples to learn in a group environment with like-minded people. The group lessons are split out by ability and we will always try to move you to the appropriate group if we think you are better suited to another stage for your progression.
All group lessons will still include high quality personal feedback as you would with 1-2-1 private lessons and will also include video analysis where possible.
Private guiding with Alpine Pros could be perfect for helping you to get the most from your precious time on the slopes, with each session specifically tailored to your needs. You will discover the best runs and off-piste terrain with your own fully qualified and experienced private instructor, who, with their extensive knowledge of the ski area in Méribel and Courchevel, will know where to go for the best snow conditions to match your expectations, weather conditions and skill levels, the perfect pistes, bumps, steeps and off-piste terrain will be there for you to enjoy and improve your skiing.
Meet Bruce a Private Ski Instructor
There’s nothing I enjoy more than getting a nervous skier from complete fear of being on the green slopes to conquering the red runs and enjoying ripping around the mountain with no apprehension of taking on the challenge of what the mountain might throw at them.
Skiing with kids is my kind of fun, beyond belief. If its learning about the snow craft, mountain awareness or hitting the jumps in the park and pulling off some 360s. We learn and work together and have fun in the process to make the impact of learning new skills an experience that will never be forgotten.
Skiing in Méribel
The Meribel Valley is one of the most popular destinations for British skiers (the resort was, in fact, founded by a British Colonel, Peter Lindsay, in 1938). Consisting of picture-postcard chalets and chalet-style apartment buildings and hotels, Méribel has retained all the charm of a traditional mountain village with its wood and stone buildings and forest setting.
We have always found that Meribel has been the best area to teach in, especially for beginners, there’s no better terrain out there in our opinion, the green runs from the top of the rhodus area are the best progression for everyone new to the sport. The only thing that we wouldn’t recommend is being a complete beginner on a peak week as the chaudanne does become way too crowded to provide a safe teaching environment for you guys. Anything at or above level 2 is perfect for you in the Meribel area.
Skiing in Courchevel
Situated within the Three Valleys, and in easy reaching distance from Méribel and beyond, Courchevel 1850 (or just Courchevel as it’s now been renamed) provides access to the world’s largest ski area. Courchevel 1850 is one of five villages that make up the resort of Courchevel. The others are Courchevel 1650 (Moriond), Courchevel 1550 (Courchevel Village), Le Praz and La Tania.
Courchevel is part of the world’s largest ski area known as the Three Valleys. There are 150km of runs in Courchevel alone and once you add in those in neighbouring Meribel, Val Thorens, Les Menuires and St Martin you have over 600km of pistes to ski. More than enough to keep you going for a winter, let alone a week’s holiday! As well as the variety of pisted runs on offer, there are a number of snow parks to explore and avalanche safety camps to test your skills, as well as some incredible off piste to keep the biggest powder hounds grinning all week.
