Whether you want a technical lesson or a look around, we are happy to meet up the evening before to talk it through.
Off-piste ski lessons
If you want to find the best snow and conditions, try skiing with one of our off-piste qualified instructors. They specialize in helping you to find the best terrain and snow conditions. These resort experts can also help you with using the equipment you need to go off-piste safely and with confidence. You can improve your technique in variable terrain and powder at the same time as exploring new parts of the resort. More Info
Whether you’re a new snowboarder, looking to link your first turns, or an advanced rider, ready to step into the snow park or experience Verbier’s legendary back-country, by taking a lesson with one of our highly qualified and experienced snowboard instructors from ES-ride you’ll be sure to boost your snowboarding ability and maximise your fun.
Telemark ski lessons
If you’re looking for a change and want to be noticed for all the right reasons, we suggest that you try telemarking. At European Snowsport we have highly experienced telemarking instructors with a passion for the sport. When not teaching Alpine skiing, they can be seen carving up the piste or skiing the bumps for the sheer exhilaration of this discipline.
Proficient alpine skiers can master the basics of telemarking quite quickly and the balance, rhythm and co-ordination acquired when telemarking cross over the alpine discipline, and result in a stronger and more accomplished skier. Experienced telemarking skiers also benefit from a lesson with us: video analysis aids in smoothing out lead changes and skiing the bumps or carving the piste in style.
