“Excellent Ski Instructor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Booked a private lesson with Andy H out of Courchevel 1850 following a previous group lesson from when he taught me and the group how to ski!

There were 3 of us in the lesson all of differing abilities. Following a quick introduction and briefing we were off.

Andy accommodated all of our requirements exceptionally well which really proved useful to all of us. The conditions on the day were trying, especially on the last chair and the near white-out conditions though this did not stop Andy's professionalism.

Overall, we all enjoyed the lesson, took things away which we continued to practice whilst we were skiing and look forward to further lessons with Andy in the future and hope he continues to contract through New Generation.

Thanks Andy!

“First class instructor !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

As we had only booked a short ski break in La Tania we left it until we got to our hotel to sort out the essential ski lessons as we were both total beginners! Our hotel Montana recommended New Generation and the receptionist even called them directly to arrange the times etc. We booked three 2 hour lessons for the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and the instructor Adam Whale took us from being not able to stand, stop or turn on the nursery slope to going right up to Courcheval 1850 and coming down blue runs on our 3rd day, parallel turning mastered!
So would totally recommend this company and would definitely use them again when we return next season. We are totally hooked!!
Thanks guys!!

“Excellent coaching for a tricky sport!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We had such a good experience learning to snowboard with Iain from New Generation, Courchevel 1650. He figured us both out pretty quickly, knowing when to challenge us and when we needed a bit of a confidence boost (normally after falling over, which happened several times!). The lessons were varied and took us on a range of runs in 1650 and over to 1850. We both ended up being able to traverse tricky flat spots, travel on heel and toe edge, make turns down the mountain and complete whole runs by the last day (at a beginner level of course!). Iain said that making progress tends to be down to hard work, but for us, I would suggest that his excellent teaching was the magic ingredient. High 5 Iain and New Generation!

“Brilliant ski school”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Booked a level 3 week in early March after reading lots of positive reviews. My previous skiing holiday in Meribel left me lacking in confidence after the ski instructor (in a large group of 14) left me on the slopes as i couldn't turn!
Marco at new Gen was brilliant and in a small group of 6, my confidence soared and the whole group came on leaps and bounds after 5 days instruction. Don't book with one of the other ski schools as their groups are too big and you don't get any personal feedback. I will book again!
