Outstanding lessons
Mar 2020
We had Bryn for three lessons - outstanding teacher who not only knew how to ski, but his teaching and coaching style was brilliant - wish I could take him on every skiing holiday I go on in future.

Excellent service and instruction
Feb 2020
BBskischool were fantastic. Conveniently placed across the street from the main gondola up the mountain, BB provided excellent instructors for both my kids and great rental equipment. The brothers that fitted s for equipment were very knowledgeable and super friendly with my kids. Fernando instructed my 9-year old who had never been skiing...after only 2 days she was cruising the blue runs. He has the patience of a saint. Jill instructed my 13-year old and had her parallel turning within 2 days. Both instructors were fun and enjoyable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND BBSKISCHOOL!

Great instructors - recommended!
Jan 2020 • Friends
Marcus and his trainee instructor were welcoming and a great team.
I originally booked on to group lessons however no one my level booked on for the same week so I was offered 3x 9.30am-12.30pm private lessons for the same price. This worked out really well and increased my confidence no end.

The only negative point was that the admin side of the business was a bit rubbish. It took me quite a few calls just to book in and then had to chase for confirmation of group/private lessons. Although once you get through to someone they are very helpful.

All in all I would definitely recommend BB ski school; especially as they are the only school to have native English speakers in Baquira-Baret.

Kate was wonderful.
Apr 2019 • Family
We had three 2 hour family ski lessons - Kate was so good with all of us especially our 7 year old son who thought she was amazing. She got all us of skiing in 6 hours and we would defiantly recommend her.

The guys in the shop for the ski hire were very friendly and knowledgeable - again would recommend without hesitation.

Thanks so much,

Mat, Rachel and Teddy.

Not really a ski school
Apr 2019 • Family
We had a terrible experience with Tim where we ended up having to hire our own local instructors as he only had a handful of instructors for a large and mixed group of children meaning children who had skied 15 times were skiing with near beginners. I would describe them as ski nannies rather than a ski school- fine if you are just after childcare for the day. He refused to refund us and was rude and obstructive to guests. Avoid. Local ski school is fantastic.

Ski School for 13yr Old
Feb 2019 • Family
Our son is quite an accomplished skier and was placed in the Intermediate class with a Spanish instructor Carlos who spoke perfect English. Our son loved every minute of his 5 days. Great Instructors teaching the kids to their ability and above. Last 4 days were spent doing Black runs and small classes of only 5/6 ...Highly recommended

Great instructors & gear, average admin
Feb 2019 • Family
We were overall very happy with the instructors provided for private classes for my family (beginners) and myself (experienced but looking for areas to improve). Michelle in particular was great and really went the extra mile, which was greatly appreciated. Our gear was great too, and there were no issues with swapping out boots for a better fit, etc. This was done fast, as was fitting. No issues with gear set-up (bindings, etc.). I can't really comment on cost as I don't have a sense of what the (many) other local places are charging. The resort itself is awesome, though the village is nothing special (when compared to more traditional ski resorts).

What lets this business down is the rather chaotic and impersonal admin/booking process - I/we made multiple calls and emails yet each time had to identify and explain ourselves. It didn't feel like there was any real continuity in the experience - every discussion was like starting from scratch. At one point it was unclear if our booking (and payment in full) had even been accurately reflected, which was worrisome as we were just a week or so away from departure, with accommodation pre-paid.

While I was overall happy with the experience, I'd recommend some sort of CRM system to improve the customer experience, across web, email and phone. A smoother, more personal touch will go a long way.

Brilliant ski school in a great resort.
Jan 2019 • Family
Can’t recommend BB Ski School highly enough! We had a brilliant 5 days over New Year. Lessons with Marcus for the adults and with Gino and Carlos for our boys aged 7 and 10. We have all improved hugely. Everyone at BB Ski school from Tim, the owner, to Lucas who sorts out skis and all in the shop are really friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a lovely time. Can’t wait to go again!
