Great ski school

Our sons took part in ski school with Dave and had a wonderful week. My wife had a private lesson with Barbara and her skiing improved immensely. Highly recommended.

We've been taught them before. Overall we had two great lessons and we felt very comfortable with Luca but the... More

Having just returned from a break in Val D'Isere, we can't thank our instructor Danilo and New Gen Ski School enough. What a saint! I think we may have driven him potty but he never showed it. He kept our spirits up when frustration set in and told us we were doing well when we just couldn't see it. We... More

A big shout out to Alessandro for teaching my 2 children to ski. He was an excellent instructor, very patient and they both enjoyed the lessons. Highly recommended, thanks Alessandro! Will definitely book with New Generation Ski School if we come back to Courchevel! 👍⛷🎿

Great ski school for kids, smaller classes, laid back instructors (nice bunch of Italian guys). Davide in particular deserves credit for his inexhaustible patience!

Our instructors (Sam & Vanessa) led the level 4 & level 3 groups throughout our week in courchevel 1650. They were both fantastic, albeit in different ways. Without a doubt our experience and abilities grew throughout the week and there was a significant difference in our abilities and confidence by the end of the week. Yes you can watch youtube,...
