The Best Ski Courses In Europe

The Best Ski Courses In Europe

Val d’Isere
With the help of ski experts before you go on your main ski holiday this winter, there’s an opportunity to revamp your skiing. The ski courses run from the very first day of the season, so if you arrive on 28th November, and stay a week, you can take an early lift the next morning up the mountain. The ski instructors have been guiding students for many years around the Val d’Isere slopes.
What about the virus safety situation and how it will affect your ski holiday? Val d’Isere had a triumphant summer ski season on the glacier in June and July and the resort followed safety measures successfully. These measures will not create lift queues or lead to any reduction in ski terrain, they assure us. Yes, you’re going to be required to wear a mask on lifts and in socially-distant lift queues, but otherwise, it shouldn’t affect skiing itself.
The main question is: can we travel to the French Alps with the current quarantine conditions? This is an economic question, not just about health. Millions of jobs depend on the ski industry’s continuation in the mountains and elsewhere, and resorts are equipped and Covid-ready. Incidentally, before the slopes and the hotels closed in March, there wasn’t a single case of the virus reported in Val d’Isere.
The ski courses, both on-piste and off-piste, are intensive, but fun. Numbers are limited, divided according to ability and experience, to six or seven per group. On a blue run, you need to be able to ski connected parallel turns and try the same on a red run.

La Plagne
For families, La Plagne ski courses are ideal. For over 25 years, the ski school in La Plagne has set the standard for friendly, fun ski lessons. They offer an award-winning selection of group lessons, private lessons, off-piste sessions, and fun après-ski activities for children and adults. In La Plagne, Oxygène was born, and the resort holds a special place in our hearts and is truly a wonderful playground. La Plagne boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the French Alps, spanning 11 separate villages over 225 km of pistes and easy connexions to the neighbouring ski resort of Les Arcs. From beginner to expert, it’s an ideal family destination for all levels and abilities.
The lessons are only as satisfactory as those who teach them. That’s why La Plagne are careful when selecting their team. The staff are welcoming, responsible, able to teach in French and English (and other languages besides), and armed with a host of expertise. At La Plagne, they handpick only the best instructors for skiing and snowboarding and always offer excellent tuition.
