Highly recommend Optimum, we had a three hour private lesson which really helped us get to see as much of the mountain as possible while Will gave us hints and tips to iron out any niggles we were having. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro a lesson is always worth it. Thanks Optimum.

I have been skiing for a long time, but along the way have (sadly) picked up some very bad habits. Decided that I needed a lesson to kick start a major improvement in my technique. What can I say? Ally, my instructor, was patient, VERY knowledgeable and absolutely brilliant at suggesting techniques to show me how to improve. A fantastic... More

One of the reasons I chose Saas-Fee is that it has this British run ski school - my gf had never seen snow let alone skiied and I wanted a couple of sensitive private lessons to get her started. Optimum could not have been bettered for this. Before we went I was a bit worried by their prices which, like... More

Fabulous ski school in every way. The instructors are brilliant both in their technical abilities and in making lessons fun for all ages and abilities. Our children (11, 9, 7 and 5) have come back saying this was the best holiday they have ever had and it is difficult to disagree with that verdict! Thank you very much indeed, especially... More

We just returned from a wonderful week in Saas Fee. Will and Ally from Optimum were simply fabulous dealing with our group of 14 people (mostly advanced skiers) which ranged in age from 8 to 54 years old. These charming young men provided great ski guiding, as well as, fun and challenging ski exercises to suit everyone. Will and Ally... More

Really great instruction working at the speed of the family to build confidence and motivate us all. We were a family of five with very little experience in the past 30 years. By the end of our 12.5 hours we able to manage trips to the top of the mountain and down on the blue runs to the felskinn restaurant.... More

We booked with Optimum for our third time in Saas Fee. I rang in the week before and Lesley was helpful as always in advising the best option for Tia (17) and Lili (14). We settled on 4 mornings with both together with one instructor. Both are capable skiers but need to improve their technique and get the best of... More

We have just returned from Saas Fee. Our group of friends were at all different levels so we all had private instruction with Optimum. My son and I were complete beginners and extremely nervous. Our Instructor (Alex) managed to work with both of us even though my son progressed far quicker than me. I was so terrified to the point... More

Our three girls had lessons with Graham on their first ever skiing trip - and they LOVED it. Graham was a great guy who showed professionalism and patience with the girls, in terms of their ability and sometimes their cheeky attitude! They made great progress and we hope to return again. I also had a 1:1 lesson with Chris -... More
