From their name to their teaching styles, this ski school claims to have the next generation of ski instructor. With children’s lessons revolving around games, challenges and adventure so the children learn whilst having fun. You can upgrade child lessons to full days which means no need to pick them up for lunch as an Instructor takes care of them and after lunch takes them out for another session of action packed tuition. This is great for the keen-skiing parents who want a full-day to explore what the mountain has to offer.
Mountain Masters are a smaller ski school which means availability does run out quickly but for good reason.
