Why go private?

Private lessons will make skiing easier, more enjoyable and safer by:

  • Building confidence levels rapidly
  • Working at your pace
  • Ski with control and style
  • Eradicate bad habits
  • Learning new disciplines with increased technical progress
  • Focusing exclusively on you in order to achieve and hopefully exceed your goals
  • Video analysis

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.

What’s your ski level?

Level 1

This is my first time, or maybe I’ve had a taster. I’m learning how to stop, turn, take lifts and ski safely.

Level 2

I can snowplough turn competently on green runs.

Level 3

I’m comfortable on green and easy blue runs. I’m learning and advancing towards parallel turning.

Recommended Lessons

With  levels 1 – 3 we would recommend having blocks of morning or afternoon lessons, this give you the chance to rest before or after the lesson, allowing you the opportunity to practice what you have learnt or relax and enjoy a good lazy morning/afternoon letting the training sink in, either way is a winner in our books.

Level 4

I can already consistently perform basic parallel turns and feel happy on groomed red runs.

Level 5

I’m happy tackling all pistes in a confident parallel.

Level 6

I’m happy skiing everywhere parallel, and in varying conditions on or off-piste, steep or bumpy. I just want to get better.

Recommended Lessons

For those at level 4 – 6, we recommend you take full advantage of the fact you can ski almost all of the mountain. Picking up full days will give you the opportunity to rip around the 3 valleys, the largest ski area in the world. Making constant improvement to your skiing while being shown the hidden gems of the alps, and some of our favourite pistes.

Private Ski Lessons for Children

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!

Ski Lessons for toddlers and young children

There’s nothing more delightful than watching your little ones experience the exhilaration and joy of skiing. Starting early encourages long term confidence, balance and freedom. Some toddlers are ready and enthusiastic to have a go from age 3, especially if they already attend a creche/kindergarten. Alpine Pros will lay the grounding towards a good technique, but our main aim is to ensure their first experiences on the slopes are enjoyable and engaging. Children from the age of 7 progress faster with a private instructor than in a group lesson. Developing and improving the skiing technique or correcting wrong habits is also best done during a private lesson for children who are already experienced skiers.

Private teen ski lessons

If your teens would rather not be seen with their parents (and let’s face it, we’ve all been there!) or are already out-skiing them, then they have probably outgrown ski school and are up for a new challenge! We develop mountain safety with a serious dose of fun! More thrills, fewer spills: our specially tailored teenage coaching encourages youngsters to become independent on the mountain and to learn to evaluate and reduce risks, all while having great adventures!

Private Ski Lessons for Adults

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.

Take advantage of the advice and expertise of our professional ski instructors during a private lesson. We will quickly establish where you require help with your technical ability and work with you to rectify it, so you progress to hone and master your skis with confidence!

Book private ski lessons to:

  • to get started as a beginner
  • restore confidence in ability after an accident or injury
  • a have a refresher lesson for the start of your holiday
  • progress technical towards a specific goal
  • learn a new discipline
  • discover the ski area on all terrains or off-piste.

Benefit from a more focused approach, whether individual or in a small group of the same ability, private ski lessons will really boost performance and fast track your progression.


Adult Group Lessons

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.

These group lessons offer a different way to make new friends and improve your skiing whilst having fun on the slopes.
