From a three-year-old’s the first steps on snow in the children’s snow garden to teenagers confidently crushing black runs and getting in to the snowpark you’ll find ski lessons for children of all ages and ability in Courchevel (which can come in handy when you suddenly realise your kids have become better skiers than you!). We’re probably (more than) a bit biased but at SkiBro we think that properly laying the foundation for a lifetime on the slopes - free of bad habits - is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give their children. SkiBro’s partner ski schools and instructors are all fully certified and have years of experience providing kids’ ski lessons that focus not only on technical instruction but also fun and safety. Children’s ski lessons tend to book up very quickly during peak school holiday periods like half-term and christmas break, so make sure to book early during these times to avoid disappointment.
Did you know that nearly a third of all group ski lessons are beginner adult group lessons? It sounds surprising but group ski lessons are a great way to learn to ski; surrounded by other people of a similar age and ability level who are also trying something new. Group lessons are also great for progressing from a beginner skier to a more independent intermediate. With quality coaching for a few hours each day you can spend your mornings working on your technique before grabbing a bite to eat and explore everything the mountain has to offer with your friends and family in the afternoons.
Private instruction is just that – a ski instructor solely devoted to you (and any friends or family you choose to invite) for a given period of time. These lessons are offered both by formal ski and snowboard schools as well as by freelance instructors – certified independent instructors working for themselves or in loose collectives. A private ski instructor in Courchevel can offer you a level of flexibility and individual attention beyond what group lessons can. For some people one short, intensive, session with a private instructor will teach them more than they’d get from a full week of group lessons. For many people, however, the inverse would be true and the repetition and additional practice in group lessons is invaluable.
Considered by those who get into it as skiing in its purest (and most fun!) form, freeride (also known as off piste or backcountry) skiing is the pursuit of skiing all over the mountain, unrestricted by the edge of the piste in a variety of snow conditions. A good day’s freeride skiing might involve long descents down wide open mountain faces, steep couloirs and adventures through the trees, far away from the crowded pistes. In addition to private ski instructors and mountain guides you can sometimes find camps and courses designed to give upper-intermediate skiers their first taste of off-piste delights in Courchevel. Be careful though, the white powder can be quite addictive.
From ‘never-evers’ to semi-pros you’ll find a snowboard lesson in Courchevel designed to take you riding to the next level. If you’re thinking small, think big. And if you’re thinking big- think bigger! If you’re new to a resort or even if you’re returning to an old favourite, a top snowboard instructor or group snowboard lessons will help you unlock local secrets of the area that you’ll wish you knew about years ago! Flatland tricks, jibbing, carving trenches, slaying powder – stop being a slave to your snowboard and learn to master it!
Located in the once-sleepy French region of Savoie, Courchevel has made a name for itself as one of the best places for the jetset to head in search of both skiing and luxury. Located a 3 hour drive from Geneva airport and 2.5 hours from Lyon, transfer times don't matter to some of Courchevel's guests, who instead land their private jets right next to the piste at the Courchevel Altiport (yes, really). Courchevel is famed as the upmarket place to ski and be seen for the world's rich and famous.
And while the resort is brimming with mega-chalets, Michelin stars and designer shops there's much more to it than that - it's an incredible ski resort to improve your skills, no matter your level or skiing ability. Part of the legendary 3 Valleys- the biggest linked ski area on the planet, linking Courchevel with, among others, La Tania, Méribel, Val Thorens and Les Menuires- Courchevel is home to some truly fabulous skiing. With many of its slopes on a northerly aspect, Courchevel is often where the best quality snow in the 3 Valleys can be found. Many of the pistes above Courchevel 1850 and Courchevel 1650 are green, making it an ideal place to learn and, like much of the 3 Valleys (which you can access on a single lift pass), Courchevel is blessed with an abundance of well groomed blue and red runs, making it paradise for intermediates.
Much of the challenge for experienced skiers and snowboarders lies in the off piste and ski touring terrain on offer - with the many couloirs at Saulire offering a stern test of technique and nerve! The resort itself is split into several different villages, each catering differing tastes (and wallet thickness!) from the bright lights of Courchevel 1850 to the rustic charm of Le Praz at 1300m. The new Aquamotion indoor leisure centre is an amazing facility that includes rapids and a standing wave to surf- well worth a visit on a bad weather day.
