Your lessons. Your way.
At European Snowsport, we love helping people learn to ski and their confidence grow. Private lessons are the quickest way to see results, so they’re worth the investment.
Our instructors are known for their adaptability; we appreciate everyone enjoys different things and we want you to have your own extraordinary experience on the snow.
Private ski lessons with European Snowsport
With our private lessons you can define your personal goals and we’ll help you reach them. You might be improving your skills on a corporate ski weekend, a group of adults learning to ski, or looking for ski lessons for beginners. Whatever your situation, we work hard to find a ski instructor to suit you perfectly. You can create your own private group and add people you choose at no extra cost.
We want you to have fun too, and people often say how much they enjoy their ski lessons with European Snowsport. Our clients often request the same teacher year upon year, building a rewarding relationship that delivers real results and creates some truly special moments on the snow.
As one of the best ski schools, we’re not the cheapest and we’re happy to admit that. Exceptional teaching also requires investment and we run an extensive internal training programme to ensure our ski instructors stay at their peak. So as well as being safe on the slopes, you can be safe in the knowledge you’ll be taught by those at the top.
“Within 10 minutes [I had] guidance that unravelled 30 years of bad habits”
We’ll add extra value where it matters so you can get the very best ski lessons with the highest level of service. Our instructors all speak excellent English and, as well as improving your skiing, they’ll know the important information you need like which lifts are open, where to avoid the queues, the weather outlook and crucially, who serves the best coffee.
To ski your best, you need to be your best and we’ll take you up a level. When you choose ES, our instructors will ultimately unlock your true potential, expand your confidence and harness the best of your brilliant ability.
And when you reach new heights, they’ll be right beside you.

One on one
There is no extra charge for adding family or friends to your private lessons, so the group size can vary at different times according to your needs.
Often families or groups of friends hire several private instructors to look after parties including mixed abilities and requirements. If your party requires more than one instructor, we will appoint a lead instructor to coordinate your needs prior to arrival.
Off-piste private ski lessons
Beautiful. Still. Away from it all.
Skiing off-piste is a bit like stepping off the world as you know it. It makes for a magical memory; creating elegant, smooth turns in soft, untouched powder. And it stays with you. The exhilarating freedom of floating down the mountain with the fresh air in your lungs, the bounce of the turns, the serenity, the peace. The connection with the mountain and nature. The disconnect from people and hustle.
But it’s not as simple as choosing to take the wrong turn towards that untouched, cushiony blanket you see beyond the marked trails, and leaping blindly into it. Tempting as that might be.
Knowing how to find that fresh snow, where the powder is safe and where it isn’t, takes years of experience and specialist training.
“Tailor made for our level… exhausting, exhilarating and immensely satisfying.”
Conditions change quickly and to learn to ski off piste it’s essential to find a ski instructor who is top qualified, experienced in the resort, and an expert in off piste lessons.
If you understand the risks involved and are an advanced technical skier looking for a new, unique level of challenge, we can create a tailored and exclusive experience for you, which makes bringing you back safely a priority.
Our ES off-piste ski instructors have extensive local knowledge and expertise which allows them to identify the best spots in the picturesque playground for you to enjoy. For a deeper appreciation of what the mountains can offer they’ll take you on a safe journey through uncharted territory.
