Element ski were very quick at accommodating our needs. We were at Verbier for 3 days and were beginners too. We were so happy to have Dominic as our instructor, he gave us the best tips on how to ski and made our experience phenomenal. After only one session we were confident to go from easy small slopes to up the mountains.I recommend you guys trying them and ask for Dominic he's amazing

I had 6 full days of lessons with Alex after a 2 year hiatus from skiing and he was brilliant. Alex really helped me to improve my short and long turns, my short turns on steeper slopes and my edging, as well as getting me to ski faster and to tackle more moguls and jumps (despite my tentativeness!).

I’m eager to continually improve my skiing and Alex made the week both challenging and excellent fun. His explanations and instructions were always very clear and he tailored his teaching techniques to work for me. On top of always being very patient and encouraging, he is an awesome guy and was fantastic company for the week.

Alex has a great knowledge of Verbier and the surrounding areas and I loved skiing to new places like Nendaz. He was also kind enough to take me to some après spots that I’d never tried which was great.

Thanks again Alex for a superb week! Until next time!

On this occasion, I booked lessons at short notice and as always, Element were very accommodating, responsive and efficient. We discussed my ability and what I wanted to work on, plus the communication between the ski instructors is excellent - prior to my lessons, Alex discussed my ability with the previous instructor that I had at Element (Jack - also brilliant).

I always have an amazing time skiing with Element (this is my 5th time now) and they are my go-to ski school in Verbier! Emma, Guy and the team are fantastic.

We booked Jake from Element as a guide for the day and he was absolutely outstanding. We were a mixed ability group and we all learned a lot from Jake as well as having a fantastic day. He perfectly gauged our individual abilities and having told him that I lacked the confidence to ski black runs, I discovered that we had skied two without realising it by the end of the day! Jake definitely deserves a sixth star for that and I went on to ski multiple black runs over the remaining few days.

We then seemed to bump into Jake with happy clients all over the mountain and two of the better skiers in our group booked him for some off piste on the final day which they thoroughly enjoyed.

We will definitely be returning to Verbier and will definitely be booking Jake and the Element team again. Best moment - when our most experienced skier tried to show off by overtaking Jake who simply raised one ski (completely off the piste) and shot off on the other. Priceless!

Very well impressed with Element Ski school. Prior to our arrival they were responsive to our enquiries and needs, made really good recommendations and accommodated our preferences. Once there, the instructors were great. The kids loved their lessons with Evan & Tom; the more experienced skiers enjoyed their time off-piste with Will. Element also provided us with a discount for ski rental which was much appreciated. All-in, highly recommended!!!

I was planing to attend a women ski camp with Element Ski School for almost a year.
Finally I had the change in February and it was more than I was expecting.
Firstly I was fortunate enough to have different weather conditions in just a week. From sunny days with icy runs to low visibility and fresh powder to the end of the week.
Our instructor, Julie, kept us motivated and showed great teaching skills, giving us valuable tips and patiently correcting our mistakes.
I’ve learnt a lot in just a week, and I highly recommend it.

Found Element from the search engine top reviews and for sure they were all true. As a group newbies to Verbier we had Jake on Day 1 to show us the skiing area and pushing our abilities. Some of the group rarely if ever skied a black run, he had them down the run with smiles on their faces. They never looked back after that.

Two of us took Jake again for a bit of off-piste fun and in that session he took me away from that plateau I was on, to skiing with a new approach and more importantly enjoyment.
He has an easy way in imparting simple nuggets that stick in the mind.

Should also add both Emma and Lucy were very helpful in initial booking both very friendly over the phone. We'll be back!

Second time choosing Element Ski School at Verbier and again we enjoyed our lessons a lot. Jake and Angus are both professional instructors and we have gained a lot of confidence as beginners. The lessons are, just like other comments mentioned, well organized, joyful and inspiring. Tip: In peak seasons, you may not be able to book the same instructor for multiple sessions. Don't worry, they are all professional and will handle the transition smoothly. Highly recommend!

I had two lessons with Dominic on my first two days here mainly to help with my confidence and technique. I’ve been skiing for years but have always struggled with fear, which is where Dominic was really helpful. He was really patient and encouraging, and really helped me feel more comfortable on the slopes. He taught me how to be more in control with my skis, and after only two lessons I was able to enjoy the rest of the week doing much harder runs with my family. I would definitely recommend Dominic, whether it’s for support or technique, or both!

If you need a ski guide or want a private lesson, these are the guys to use. Well organised, friendly and excellent teaching. Total beginner to skiing some tricky red runs after a day and a half’s teaching! Highly recommend.

I am an experienced skier who felt the need for some polishing of my technique and some work on bumps at the beginning of a 6 week stint in Verbier.

Lottie was a very thorough and excellent instructor who was able to explain subtle techniques very simply and clearly. She was brilliant fun and easy to spend hours with in the mountains.

I will be booking time with Lottie next season for some more challenging plans.
