I had a private off-piste lesson with Steve. He managed to find fresh powder after it hadn't snowed for a couple of days and pushed me just the right amount with a couple of jumps too. I would recommend this school to anyone looking to make a big stride in a short space of time. The office were friendly and... More

Lesley in the office was very welcoming. I booked a 2 hour private lesson for 2 days. MY instructor was an English man called Graham. He was brilliant and would strongly recommend booking with him. He was patient and encouraging. The first day the weather was against us, and gave me the option to quit and start again the next... More

We have just experienced a memorable time in Saas Fee. Our Instructor Steve was very very patient and encouraging. By the end of the week we had mastered how to ski and was gaining confidence. We would thoroughly recommend Steve at Optimum - thank you Steve for making our holiday so memorable.

Really really enjoyed it and if any of you out there hesitating, just don't - book this school! :) they are awesome and you'll love skiing! Went skiing in SaaS Fee with a group of girlfriends beginning of December. We've never done any proper skiing and had very little idea of what to do. Had 3 lessons with Ally, who... More

From Lesley in the office to all the amazing instructors on the slopes, this is the best ski school we have ever used by a long shot. The children have loved all their instructors and particularly Will who taught them this year and they have come on leaps and bounds. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this ski school for both...

I'm in Saas Fee again this year, and delighted to head back to Optimum for lessons with Steve. Optimum is such a friendly place; it's a joy to stop by and book in a lesson - always easy and hassle-free. Steve is a fabulous instructor; not only is he an amazing skier, but he's brilliant at explaining technique and finding... More

There are three main ski schools in Saas Fee - Eskimos, Swiss ski school (the 'official' school) and Optimum. All have good reviews online, especially Optimum and Eskimos. All are similarly priced. I chose Optimum as being English based I thought it more likely I would have an instructor who had English as a first language. My brother and I... More
