Courchevel and Méribel
I first skied in the 3 valleys when I was 11 on a school trip and from this point on I’ve always had a fascination with the area. It wasn’t till I left university and came back in my early twenties that I made the decision over 6 years ago to make the 3 valleys my winter home.
We know the resorts of Courchevel and Méribel like the back of our hands so can find the right terrain to build confidence, challenge and refine technique whilst having fun. Sharing our favourite secret spots around the both resorts. Bringing our experience, skills and passion to our private ski lessons, whatever your level, the skiing options are endless in the 3 valleys.
Private Ski Lessons for Children, Adults 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.
