The Ski and Snowboard Short Break Specialist


Ski Lessons for short breaks – solutions & ski schools in all resorts

Whether you are new to skiing or an intermediate looking to brush up your technique, ski lessons can be a valuable part of a ski holiday.

Wherever you stay, we can help you arrange the ski lessons that you need. At some locations you book directly through us, at others you book direct with local ski schools.

If you are a beginner, or ski lessons are important for any of your group, then we would recommend that you consider the resorts of Le Grand Bornand or La Clusaz where we are able to offer the most comprehensive choice of lesson options.

Group Ski Lessons for Weekends and Midweeks in the Aravis Resorts

In the Aravis we have created our own, dedicated, small group lessons for 3 days (from Tuesday to Thursday) or 4 days (from Friday to Monday) with our favourite English-speaking instructors.

We work in close partnership with the Ecole du Ski Francais (ESF) to offer our very own lessons in Le Grand Bornand – which we believe is the best ski resort in which to learn to ski, or progress from the nursery slopes.

Aravis – full lesson booking service

For all of our accommodations in the Aravis resorts of La Clusaz and le Grand Bornand, we offer a lesson booking service for both group and private lessons.

For the ultimate support and convenience we recommend a stay at the Aravis Lodge with our full ski team on site.

Our small-group lessons are available throughout the season for Beginner and Improver levels skiers. For intermediate / advanced skiers looking for lessons, we’d usually recommend a private lesson or 2.

Other Resorts – independent bookings

In Samoëns, Saint Gervais, Les Contamines and Arêches-Beaufort lesson bookings are made independently; we can offer advice and put you in touch with local ski schools who will be able to sort things out for you.

Some of them offer easy online reservations – and don’t worry they all speak English.

We don’t currently have Ski Weekender group lesson courses running in these resorts, so instruction to fit in with your short break will usually need to be on a private lesson basis.

All lessons are subject to availability – during busy periods like New Year and the February school holidays availability becomes extremely limited, so we’d advise making lesson arrangements as far in advance as possible.

If you have any questions about ski or snowboard lessons, or any aspect of the booking process, just contact us.
