Ski and Board Lessons

Everyone can benefit from ski or board lessons, they’re not just for the beginners! Our five half-day programme of beginner to expert lessons enable you to have one day of “free-skiing” to practice what you’ve learned. It’s a trusted formula that we’ve been using for the last 22 years; and one that we’ve found to have made the most profound improvements to your skiing and boarding, and yielded the most positive feedback.

Tips and Highlights

  • Learn to ski or board in only 3 days! 
  • Lessons are useful for everyone, not just beginners
  • Our handpicked resorts are ideal for beginners
  • Pre-book your lessons and don’t leave it too late
  • Save £’s with our Ski Bundles
  • We handpick the best ski schools and ensure they’re ‘tried and tested’ for you.

The Schools We Use

Our ski and board schools are tried and tested. We have carefully selected them to ensure they provide a great service for you, and that they use English-speaking instructors with a passion for their sport and the patience to deal with your learning ability.

The schools we use provide a full range of lessons to cater for all abilities: from young children and tentative adults to junior racers and powder seeking freeriders. So whether you’re looking to slide turn for the first time or to perfect your carve turns, jumps and bumps - we’ve got a clinic we can book you into.

Booking and Availability

We’re here to help every step of the way but the availability of lessons (especially in peak periods) can become limited! It always makes sense to pre-book as soon as possible so you can make use of our 'On the Snow' service, and we would always recommend our Bundles if you want to save money and fast-track yourself onto the slopes with the minimum of fuss!

Learn to Ski or Board in Just 3 Days!

This may sound like a bold statement, but with the right care and attention, learning to ski or board is not as hard as you might think. And yes, you’ll normally have the basics mastered in just a few days.

Using our specially selected ski and board schools; and in our chosen resorts which have a good balance of beginner runs, we can have the majority of our guests up and skiing or boarding after only their first or second day; and linking basic turns by their third day.

By the end of the week, you should be exploring much of the local ski area under your own steam and venturing further afield without the need of an instructor.

Choose Your Lesson Level:

We have found that our five half day packages of lessons provide skiers - young and old, beginner to expert) -with the best combination of value-for-money and free-ski time to practice what you’ve learnt. We have offered this trusted formula for the last 22 years and it has been found to have had the most profound improvement on progression, and positive feedback from our guests.

A lesson in the morning or in the afternoon - with time on your own to practice new skills at your own pace - is something we know works well. Don’t worry about choosing the right level now... If, after day one you feel you want to move up (or down) a level then our snow hosts will be able to help you in resort.


Children & Skiing

We believe that the quality of ski school for your children should not be compromised. Learning to ski is fun all the way, and important to get it right as they take their first tentative steps of their skiing careers.

Children from the age of 4 or 5 can learn to ski and younger children (under 4) can get a taste of the snow in specially made ski gardens and snow crèches. Our hand-picked ski schools are specially chosen for their friendly outlook and excellent, English speaking instructors and we’ve used them for years, so we know what to expect.

Our specially selected resorts are renowned for their beginner and family suitability with networks of easy cruising slopes so young beginners are not confined to the nurseries all week. Most resorts even have free beginner lifts or “magic carpets” to get you started.

Our ‘On the Snow’ Service

If you pre-book your ski Extras with us then our ‘On the Snow’ service will help you get started in resort. Alpine Elements Ski hosts and reps will be on hand from the moment you arrive to answer any questions you may have.

Once in resort our reps will deliver pre-booked lift passes straight to you and fast-track you (where we can) through the ski hire shops so you can get on the mountain faster and start practicing those slide turns!

Our reps will also help with any equipment changes or lift pass problems and assist you with your ski and board lessons when using our specially selected suppliers. Our lessons-support and help in resort can be invaluable.

How to book Extras

 

We always advise...

We always advise pre-booking your Ski Extras with us so that we can take care of you in resort under our 'On the Snow' programme. This will help us to make things faster and more efficient for you on arrival in resort.

 

> Book on-line or over the phone

All our Ski Extras can be booked on-line with your initial holiday reservation or over the phone with our expert sales team, so don’t forget to add them on. If you’re a family or group booker and uncertain about the best deals available for you - then just call us so we can help you work out what the best offers and packages are. 

Call us now on 0844 770 40 70

 

> Your Client Area

If you’ve already booked, then simply go to your Client Area and share the link with your group. Here, you can get prices and add any ski Extras to any passenger. At this stage you will not have to pay anything, all orders are taken and group leaders are sent a fresh invoice to check before agreeing and paying. Simple!

Go to my Client Area

 

> Book by email

If you’ve already booked then you can also add Extras or get prices by sending an email to extras@alpineelements.co.uk. After you’ve asked for Extras to be added by email, we will then send you a confirmation invoice to make sure you’re happy. Payment will be due later and normally align with your holiday balance due date. See our terms below.

extras@alpineelements.co.uk

 

> Payment of Extras

All Ski Extras can be added to your booking without any deposit or pre-payment necessary. We will simply ask that you settle the balance with us by your final holiday balance due date which is normally 10 to 12 weeks before departure, or sooner for bookings made within this period. Some lessons and childcare providers may need a deposit on reservation. See our terms.

 

Cancellations

 

For Ski & Board hire & Lift pass:

We don’t charge for cancellations or amendments to lift passes or ski and board hire, right up until two weeks prior to departure. So you can change your mind as often as you like! If you wish to completely cancel an order within two weeks prior to departure then there may be an admin fee of £30 per person, (per equipment pack / lift pass). However if you wish to upgrade the order to a superior equipment pack or lift pass there will be no extra charge.

 

For Ski Lessons & Childcare

Quite a lot of work has to go into sourcing lessons and childcare for our clients and third party suppliers often ask for deposits. Therefore we may have to charge for cancellations and amendments made, (at any time), as well applying as our standard admin fee. 

 

The detail 

 

Passport Photos

Please bring a passport sized photo to resort. Some ski passes do not require this however lift ticket offices can be unreliable and are known for “changing their minds”! To be safe, be sure to bring one with you and you will not have to look around resort for a photo booth!

 

Lift Pass Duration

All passes are arranged to commence the day after arrival so that you can get the standard 6 days on the mountain during any one week and 13 days for two weeks. Should you wish to ski on the day of your arrival or departure then you must arrange the extra day or half day pass separately with our reps on arrival in resort. You can do this quite easily on arrival or the transfer coach with us.
