NEW FORMAT FOR 2019!
These courses are designed to develop your ability and confidence to tackle the whole mountain with fluidity and ease.
A maximum of four skiers in each group, carefully chosen so you can learn and improve together. These courses will cater to your individual development needs with an Instructor who has unequalled insight, understanding and patience. Plus the ability to make it real for you, in your own language and humour!
Developed around the principles of accelerated learning and recognised stages of skill acquisition, our premium courses will give you a unique learning experience. This gives you time to get more value from the sessions by practising more and it also gives you more freedom during your holiday to explore the full Portes du Soleil area.
Our weekday courses run on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday so that you have time to find your ski legs before joining the first session.
Spend Wednesday consolidating and testing your new skills before your final session on Thursday that will set you up for skiing with friends and family towards the end of your holiday.
