The joy of skiing or riding really begins when you can turn and ski in control on intermediate terrain. A very high percentage of people who try skiing or riding never return because they try it on their own or with the help of well meaning friends. Without proper instruction, many people never experience the true joy of skiing or riding. Guidance and coaching from a trained professional at the French-Swiss Ski College makes the goal of recreational skiing or riding much easier to accomplish.

We have used this school twice -- once for skiing and once for boarding. Last year we had a rather lackluster boarding lesson and I didn't think we would go back. This year, however, we returned for a ski lesson due to the fact that it's within miles of our house. Our daughter, 9, has had some lessons at Sugar... More

I don't know who the one lady was but she cut out discount coupons from a local magazine and offered them to us. We didn't even know the coupons existed. I... More
