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

Big thank you to Amy and Chris. My daughters had a great time with you two. Their skiing improved a lot. We'll be back next year.

We want to thank Will for the excellent care and attention he gave to our two grandchildren last week. Aged 7 and 9, they were virtual novices - but he soon had them whizzing down mountains and they had a wonderful experience. The company were very helpful, so that when the skiing was cancelled one day because of high winds,... More

My wife and I spent a week I'm Saas-Fee last March. I am a snowboarder and my wife a skier. I've been riding for 10 years and my wife a beginner skier. Optimum paired us up perfectly with Graham who helped my wife with her skiing and Dan who helped me hone in my technique. I really can't speak highly... More

I reviewed Optimum in 2013, and have just used them again on my second trip to Saas Fee. This time my teacher was Aimee, who was every bit as fantastic as Kat who taught me last time. I am a nervous skier, but with Aimee I got down my first ever black run, and would only have attempted that with... More

I had 3 x 1:1 sessions with Toby who was extremely patient with this risk averse beginner skier! He gave lots of encouragement and was always very positive. The booking procedure with Lesley was very straightforward. I thoroughly recommend Optimum.

We booked half term with Optimum for our ski lesson hardened teenagers. Ally, we are told has a great sense of humour, gave plenty of encouragement & created a fun atmosphere & challenging itinerary for 6 fairly challenging teenagers. We were very grateful & somewhat relieved ! Thanks Ally - what are you doing next Feb ?

Returned to Optimum after a good experience last year. This year we booked the group sessions. Our instructor, Jenny Gibson, gave us a fabulous week, improving both our technique and our confidence to tackle the black runs. Jenny is an intelligent and engaging instructor and we had almost as much fun chatting with her on the lifts as following her... More

I booked 2 private lessons with Optimum to help restore confidence and advise on technique. Tom came up with useful strategies, constructive feedback and a great attitude - I enjoyed the holiday with renewed enthusiasm for skiing. Thank you. Sara B
