Our family traveled to Switzerland for the Christmas Holiday. Most of my family are not fond of skiing, but I simply can't get enough of it...so I booked a VIP private full day instructor through Stoked Ski School. Born and raised near the Sierra Nevada Mountain range in California, I had high expectations for the ski slopes along with the Zermatt resort in general. And it didn't disappoint!

The Ski instructor, Thomas Sedlak picked me up from Hotel Alex and we went straight to the slopes! I was new to the mountain so Thomas took me to all three peaks- Rothorn Paradise, Gornergrat, and little Matterhorn (and we even stopped by the Italian side of the mountain to have an afternoon cappuccino!! :)). I quickly got my lay of the land and before I knew it, I was skiing at speeds I had never reached before.

I've had the privilege of skiing on mountains around the US and Europe and with multiple private guides and this was by far the best day skiing i've ever had. Thomas also made a reservation for lunch at Alphitta (best restaurant on the mountain) for our entire family. It was great to rendezvous with the rest of the non-skiers and enjoy some local gluwine!

Overall, I could not recommend Thomas more, he was extremely professional, sociable and gave great ski tips! We cant't wait to come back next year!

We booked a private teacher (Franscesco Rescalli) for our 3 children (10,7,7) who never skied before. (Language german).

Franscesco is a great teacher for kids!!! Our kids loved him. After the course, They cried at Home and wanted to come back to Zermatt, so they can have a ski course with him again. 5 points, main goal they like to ski achieved.

We booked 5 days a 3 hours. At the end, i was able to ski down blue and red (slowly) lanes with the kids alone. Snowbunny level. Great progress (maybe sports/inlineskating helps). +1

Price for a private teacher is expensive compared to group lessons BUT price for 3 kids is the same as for 1. Great Bargain! +1

He made a small video of the kids. Great for the grand parents! +1

Too late, I asked him to practice multiplications with one of the girls for school in the ski lift (a few times only, she needs to practice every day). +1

Maybe I should have asked for ski lessons in italien ;).

Total 9 of 5 points ;)

I guess we have to come back to Zermatt …

Dear P3970VSdb thank you for taking the time to write a comment about Francesco and detailing your experience with him. We can confirm what you said, Francesco is a teacher who can give and transmit a lot, not only the skiing technique. For this reason we are proud of him. Your positive comment motivates us further and represents for us the greatest gratification. We hope to be back on the slopes with your family and until then we wish you all the best and stay Stoked! Your Stoked Family

My husband and I recently had the chance to take two, half-day, private ski lessons with Tom and are already planning our next trip back to work with him. As beginner, adult skiers, we had very low expectations for how much we'd be able to learn and accomplish in two days; simply put, we just wanted to make it down a bunny slope without an injury or constant anxiety of a tumble. Yet, working with Tom and following his expert instruction, we exceeded any expectation we had and were cruising down the blue slopes with ease on day three. Tom is absolutely superb as an instructor, instilling confidence, making skiing fun even as a beginner, and ensuring you have techniques ready to go in any scenario. Further, he made sure we felt comfortable and like we weren't the only beginners out there. He even took and shared videos so we could learn how to improve after each lesson. Can't recommend working with Tom and Stoked enough!!

Great experience! This was our first time snowboarding, so we opted for 3 half-day lessons. Our instructor, Sergi, started with the basics in the kid's area, and after the first session he had us up on the slopes. He did a great job catering to both my wife and I, as we needed to focus on different skills.

Everybody in the shop was friendly and professional. They communicated clearly and were very helpful as we traded emails in the weeks leading up to our trip. We rented equipment from Stoked, and picking it up the evening before our first day on the mountain was the way to go. Highly recommend these guys.

Stoked Ski School was the best decision I made on my trip. I signed up for two days of three-hour morning lessons with Ed. I'm an intermediate skier, but definitely needed some work on fundamentals. Ed quickly corrected some bad habits I had fallen into, and my skiing improved immensely.

I never had to spend a minute trying to interpret a trail map, figuring out my way around the mountain or worrying about going down a run that I wasn't prepared for. Also, spring conditions made conditions a little sketchy in some areas, which we were mostly able to avoid.

Lessons are never cheap, but for me (like many people) - this was the trip of a lifetime. Having Ed improve my skiing and act as a guide maximized my ability to enjoy the experience - and made for some amazing memories on the mountain. He was a great conversationalist and gave me lots of helpful advice and background information about Zermatt and Switzerland in general.

I'm looking forward to putting my improved skills to use closer to home and tearing up runs I would have struggled with before. Very highly recommended.

Knowing that you had a good experience on the slopes and that you were able to take advantage of both Ed's technical and overall knowledge makes us happy and motivates us to continue in this direction, transmitting enthusiasm to everyone who skis with us. We hope to see you again in the future and wish you the best. Your Stoked Family

My two children aged 10 and 12 had a week of ski classes with Delphine from Stoked in December. They had an amazing week with her. I highly recommend Delphine and the Stoked ski instructors. We were blessed with amazing ski conditions during our week and the children advanced with their skiing so much. This was the week when our children started to ski better than their parents. At the end of the week, Delhone created a little treasure hunt for the children to follow. They had to go to different places on the pistes to find clues and Delphine had Toblerones as the end prize. So much fun! Very happy cllients.

If you are looking for top notch experience in snowboarding and skiing instruction in Zermatt, Stoked is the place. December 2021-January 2022 is our second visit to Switzerland. We have been everywhere in the Alps and don’t think we want to travel anywhere else. Our two boys are both in snowboarding and have excelled here with the Stoked school. Our 12 yo son has become a really confident prorider thanks to the Stoked instructor Sergi from Spain while our 6yo son learnt to ride the red slopes in just a week with a Dutch trainer Ruud. The staff is very professional and helpful. Best experience in the Alps

We ended up moving our New Year trip forward to pre Christmas. This was not without its challenges as most ski schools were not running group lessons due to lack of numbers or not running teen lessons because of Covid. We contacted Stoked who not only replied swiftly, but also provided a competitive rate for lessons without the caveat of cancelling if there were insufficient numbers.
We were really lucky to get Caroline, who was accommodating, patient, firm and brilliant fun. My boys have both progressed immeasurably, my eldest loved the snow park and off piste and I am lucky to be able to watch the multitude of video clips from the comfort of the sofa :0)

What can I say. It was my first time skiing and I had one-on-one lessons with Lello, the absolute best teacher I could have asked for. Super patient, attentive and funny making the whole experience something I will never forget. I can’t recommend Stoked highly enough, if your a beginner or a total expert looking for an off Piste guide they can cover it all. Thanks Lello you were the best, look forward to seeing you again soon.

Armin was an excellent instructor and provided a memorable experience on the mountain. His background is first class and his pedigree includes skiing with some of the best freestyle skiers in the world. For advanced skiers looking for more challenging runs Armin does not disappoint. We spent a whole day doing moguls and it was great getting pointers from someone who competed professionally with the likes of Shane McConkey, etc. Highly recommend if looking to experience a different side of Zermatt!!!
