Who needs skiing lessons?  In a word-EVERYBODY.  

If you have never skied or snowboarded before, taking lessons will eliminate the “trial and error” period that accompanies self-teaching.   The way we really ski or snowboard is through habit so why not learn the right habits first instead of trying to relearn. 

French-Swiss Ski College is dedicated to teaching proper technique from the very beginning.  We also help existing skiers/snowboarders correct habits that keep them from advancing.  Three lessons with practice time is the key to learn a skill for life. 



A common misconception is that lessons are expensive.  This is NOT the case with French-Swiss Ski College.  You can take 3 lessons for $60.  


Group lessons - $20 per person.   We will match you with a group of similar age and skill.


Private lessons - $55 for one on one .  Add $20 for each person you add to your lesson.
