    We recommend this camp!
    My 13 year old son attended this camp for 2 weeks. He found the place amazing. He liked the coaches and found that they allowed him to improve. He really liked the morning schedule but he would have liked more choice of activities in the afternoon. He really liked the shared rooms and the opportunity to meet new people from different places. He really enjoyed the video sessions.

    Ski Zenit training
    Fantastic Ski racing academy for young and upcoming athletes. Top quality coaching with a professional and friendly team. Very well organized and great environment for athletes. Our son really enjoys the trainings and camps with Zenit Ski. Will highly recommend it.

    Excellent experience with a great team
    Had the a great experience with Zenit from start to finish. As a 57 year old, with no skiing experience they really did look after me. Really helpful during the booking process & after. Arranged for my fantastic French tutor, Chris, to meet me at the hotel every day. The private lessons were well worth the money. I was full of cold but still loved every minute, even though I was running on half gas every day. Chris was professional, extremely patience with me, carried my equipment, had me up on the glacier skiing, which I never thought at my level I would be able to do. Sadly, I did miss my last lesson due to illness, which was such shame. Amazing experience and I would highly recommend this team. Many thanks

    We love Friedrich!
    Awesome, the kids had a tremendous time. Friedrich was patient and kind perfectly finding the balance between challenging the kids just enough whilst ensuring they felt safe and in control. We booked the lesson for the four of us (2 kids and two adults) and we got pointers and it worked out the same price as other options for my kids to be in ski school group. In essence a private family lesson. Totally recommend

    Madeleine was fantastic!
    Skizenit was recommended to us by the hotel that we stayed in Saas Fee. Our instructor, Madeleine was absolutely brilliant! As first time skiers, she was the perfect balance of encouraging and patient, and she helped make our lessons so much fun. She was very flexible, attentive, a great teacher and all round really lovely person. Thank you Madeleine! :)

    Best instructor ever had!
    I booked 3 days of lessons with Ski Zenit and i couldn't have made a better choice. My instructor was fun, friendly, really knowledgeable and he put me in a comfortable state from the first time. I had a great time, Rich always had a nice approach. It's only thanks to him that I feel like a better skier.

    ********** Fantastic guided free riding experience in Saas Fee highly recommend *****************
    We had some reservations about booking a snowboard free riding guide for Saas Fee, but we could not have been anymore wrong as Laura turned out to be exactly what you need when hitting a new resort on a short four day trip. From first meeting, we were completely put at ease regarding the terrain and how we would be riding it each day, the additional understanding we gained of the area in such a short time was irreplaceable. That capped off with in-depth local knowledge of the area and daily snow conditions we felt we were so much more part of the mountains. I cannot recommend highly enough looking into a local guide for free riding like Laura it saves so much time and effort, and really get you to understand your surroundings so much quicker.

The coordination and response of the team when finding out more information, booking and preparing for our trip was fantastic and always very helpful when answering questions and giving guidance. No complaints whatsoever there!
My children attended 1 week of ski racing camp. The instructors were all competent for sure, but I felt like the training wasn't targeted enough towards racing in terms of the tips my children received. I didn't see that much improvement in their ski race techniques after a week, still the same issues that they went in with (e.g. weighting on one turn side etc). I also expected a bit more coaching on the lines the skiers should take going around the flags.
I think the camp would be great for skiers looking to improve their skiing technique, not necessarily racing technique, and perhaps it was more useful for the older kids (teens etc), rather than the younger ones (my 7 and 11yo attended).
Video footage is promised as one aspect of the technique analysis, but the videos were via a phone (shaky, a little too short in many instances to really see the skiing to analyse). Maybe I was expecting too much, but I thought the video'ing would be more systematic e.g. have a tripod stationed at the bottom of the slope to capture consistent paths to analyse for improvements.
The camp is not cheap, but if you can afford it, and are just looking to improve or maintain your skiing (not so much racing technique), be in a beautiful part of Switzerland and just do something really unique for summer, then I'd recommend coming.

My 16 year old son Timothy just completed his 3rd camp with Ski Zenit. "Fantastic" He reports that he found the coaching first class, picking up on some faults he was previously unaware of and correcting them. The video analysis went in depth each evening to ensure comprehension. Snow conditions on the glacier were perfect last week (Oct 2020), which meant lots of runs were made. The physical trainings in the late afternoons were tough but allowed good progression. Hotel and meals were superb! Timmy would like to thank David and Juanra for all their support, patience and making it fun! Highly recommended!

The incredible Stefano guided/instructed our family in Grimentz and Saint-Lu, in both good weather (Grimentz) and Saint-Luc (white-out). He was professional, endlessly entertaining, funny, interested, informative, helpful and kind. We would highly recommend Ski Zenit in any situation.

In more than 40 years of skiing, I have not come across a more effective school or its teachers. We have used them on several occasions and our January trip was enhanced no end by lessons with Ally and the ski school director, Ben. What impresses me most is it's not just about technique; the all-round holiday experience is given due prominence and I very much like how they pass on tips and techniques that help cope with changing or difficult conditions. Ben, in particular, has a dry sense of humour which suits the Anglo-Saxon mentality and he also has the good grace to laugh at the clients' jokes! Mrs GlostilIdie made massive progress towards perfect parallels under his tutelage.

My 8 & 10 yo boys did ski racing private lessons for 5 days with Ski Zenit and had a fantastic time. Lucia was their coach and gave them constant feedback and instruction which is what they really needed. They absolutely loved skiing with her. She was particularly astute in recognizing the dynamic between the two boys and how best to manage their differences. The coaches worked great together setting up courses and making it fun for the kids. There was such a wonderful camaraderie amongst the coaches and kids which was really great to see. My boys made so much improvement in their technique and we are all super happy about that. Zinal was a perfect location - we had great snow and the lunches were delicious. There were many other ski teams there training while we were there. We can’t wait to go back and train with Ski Zenit. They are superb.

Excellent service throughout, friendly, professional and flexible. My two 11 year old daughters loved their ski instructor and we would not hesitate to recommend Ski Zenit. Ben and the team were so helpful and friendly - great service, great people, great company!!

Our 2 daughters had a fantastic daily ( Mon-Frid) SKI lesson with Alex from ski Zenit school and our feedback is excellent. Despite the fact that the girls are at different ski level ( the older one (11) very advanced and the younger (8) high intermediate, Alex managed to create a great experience for both of them with a very engaged lesson. At the end of the week the progress they had it was very clear and our girls "voted" that Alex was the best instructor they ever had. I strongly recommend Zenit team for a tailor made approach. Alex thank you very much.
