Free Small Group Ski Lessons at the Aravis Lodge – Easter 2021

Learn to Ski at Easter in Le Grand Bornand!

We are offering **FREE Group Ski Lessons** in Le Grand Bornand for guests staying at the Aravis Lodge on the following breaks in 2021:

Monday 29th March – Thursday 1st April – 3-day midweek, with a 2-hour lesson on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday = 6 hours total

Thursday 1st – Monday 5th April – 4-day weekend, with a 2-hour lesson on the Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday = 8 hours total

Monday 5th – Thursday 8th April – 3-day midweek, with a 2-hour lesson on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday = 6 hours total


Who the free group ski lessons are for

They are for beginners and improvers only, with absolute beginners being given the priority, and they are subject to a minimum number of people signing up for them in order for these group lessons to go ahead.

Both adults and children aged 5 upwards are welcome, though you might not be in the same group together, depending on demand.

Beginners – For first time skiers or those who’ve just had a taster session at an indoor slope. Lessons will cover absolute basics, primarily on the nursery slopes to begin with, then progressing to green runs when you are ready.

Improvers – For skiers on their 2nd or 3rd holiday looking to ski more of the mountain. Lessons can cover a refresher on green runs, then moving onto blue runs, with the aim of improving your confidence with the snow plough, using drag lifts etc.


When the free group ski lessons will be

Lessons times will be between 09:00 – 11:00 and 11:00 – 13:00.

We cannot guarantee a particular time-slot ahead of time, and the exact times / instructor names will be confirmed when you arrive at your accommodation.

Availability is limited and these lessons will be offered on a first come, first served basis, so please double check availability with us before booking your holiday if these free group lessons are a big factor in your booking decision.

These breaks over Easter are the only time that group lessons are being offered this winter, but private lessons will be available to book through us for guests staying at the Aravis Lodge and other accommodations in Le Grand Bornand throughout the season.
