As we had only booked a short ski break in La Tania we left it until we got to our hotel to sort out the essential ski lessons as we were both total beginners! Our hotel Montana recommended New Generation and the receptionist even called them directly to arrange the times etc. We booked three 2 hour lessons for the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and the instructor Adam Whale took us from being not able to stand, stop or turn on the nursery slope to going right up to Courcheval 1850 and coming down blue runs on our 3rd day, parallel turning mastered!
So would totally recommend this company and would definitely use them again when we return next season. We are totally hooked!!
Thanks guys!!

We had such a good experience learning to snowboard with Iain from New Generation, Courchevel 1650. He figured us both out pretty quickly, knowing when to challenge us and when we needed a bit of a confidence boost (normally after falling over, which happened several times!). The lessons were varied and took us on a range of runs in 1650 and over to 1850. We both ended up being able to traverse tricky flat spots, travel on heel and toe edge, make turns down the mountain and complete whole runs by the last day (at a beginner level of course!). Iain said that making progress tends to be down to hard work, but for us, I would suggest that his excellent teaching was the magic ingredient. High 5 Iain and New Generation!

Booked a level 3 week in early March after reading lots of positive reviews. My previous skiing holiday in Meribel left me lacking in confidence after the ski instructor (in a large group of 14) left me on the slopes as i couldn't turn!
Marco at new Gen was brilliant and in a small group of 6, my confidence soared and the whole group came on leaps and bounds after 5 days instruction. Don't book with one of the other ski schools as their groups are too big and you don't get any personal feedback. I will book again!

Great instructors! We had Marco who was very good, kind and sympathetic. Really enjoyed our group as we were well matched.
