Great ski instructors. Very professional. Learnt a lot from only 3 classes. I highly recommend if you ever need classes from beginners or even advance who want assistance exploring the alps.

Had a great intro to freestyle skills with instructor Tom, coming away with new skills to practice which is exactly what I wanted! Also, a huge thank you to Lesley for solving my pre-lesson equipment issues! Optimum hits that sweet spot where professionalism meets friendliness, and I'd definitely recommend them.

Highly recommend Optimum, we had a three hour private lesson which really helped us get to see as much of the mountain as possible while Will gave us hints and tips to iron out any niggles we were having. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro a lesson is always worth it. Thanks Optimum.

I have been skiing for a long time, but along the way have (sadly) picked up some very bad habits. Decided that I needed a lesson to kick start a major improvement in my technique. What can I say? Ally, my instructor, was patient, VERY knowledgeable and absolutely brilliant at suggesting techniques to show me how to improve. A fantastic... More

Optimum could not have been bettered for this. Before we went I was a bit worried by their prices which, like... More

Fabulous ski school in every way. The instructors are brilliant both in their technical abilities and in making lessons fun for all ages and abilities. Our children (11, 9, 7 and 5) have come back saying this was the best holiday they have ever had and it is difficult to disagree with that verdict! Thank you very much indeed, especially... More

We just returned from a wonderful week in Saas Fee. Will and Ally from Optimum were simply fabulous dealing with our group of 14 people (mostly advanced skiers) which ranged in age from 8 to 54 years old. These charming young men provided great ski guiding, as well as, fun and challenging ski exercises to suit everyone. Will and Ally... More
