Had an amazing time with Steve and Al. Never thought in 3 days I would see my 5 year old skiing on her own! Can't recommend highly enough.....

We did 3/3h ski lessons with Ally. He is really good in couching and motivation. It's a proper challenge to teach a group of four women and Ally was brilliant. I think we were lucky to meet him.

It was my first time snowboarding and there was no better school to pick in the whole of Saas Fee to pick than Optimum. (Also the only full English speaking school which helps). Their prices were competitive but most importantly their staff were incredible. We spoke the ones in the shop and got to play with Oscar the pug. There... More

While out for a preseason ski week in Saas Fee, I had the pleasure of receiving 2x2hr ski lessons from Ben at Optimum Snowsports. He is a director in the company, and has a very professional but friendly approach to his clients. I can see that Ben requires his Instructors to follow this approach, and I have no doubt that...

Big big thank you to Amy! My daughters had a great time with you. They are still talking about you. Other Optimum teachers are very helpful too. The girls skiing technics improved a lot and also they learnt a lot about skiing and slops. Optimum is the best ski school they have ever been. We will go back again.

had three 3hour lessons with Chris and thoroughly enjoyed his enthusiatic and friendly instruction. One of my family was ill on the first day and Chris was brilliant in re arranging the lesson after it transpired that two of us were unable to continue skiing that day.

There are lots of things to love about Optimum but the best is the fact that our seven year old loved going for his lesson with Brett (and then Stephen) and left every morning full of enthusiasm for the day ahead. The lessons are great value, starting earlier than the other schools (avoiding the scrum on the first lifts of... More

Our first family ski hol. I hadn't skied for over 20 years and my husband was completely new to skiing having only had a few short lessons on an artificial slope before we left. Our children were booked into morning ski school through Esprit and we decided to book a private instructor for the two of us in the mornings... More
