Morzine ski and snowboard schools
We believe that quality lessons – where learning is fun, enjoyable, exhilarating and develops your skiing or snowboarding to a new level – are an important ingredient of a great winter sports holiday. So whether you’re a complete beginner, an intermediate who’s reached a plateau or a confident advanced skier/snowboarder looking for that extra challenge, we suggest you consider booking lessons well in advance of your Simply Morzine winter holiday (particularly over school holiday weeks) to help you enjoy your time on the ski slopes. N.B. We advise that lessons are booked to take place from our local Morzine/Les Gets ski area (Pleney).
Morzine ski and snowboard lessons recommendations from Simply Morzine
British Alpine Ski and Snowboard School (BASS)
Offering a variety of group courses alongside instructors for private lessons, BASS are at the forefront of ski and snowboard tuition for all abilities. Using only native English speaking instructors, they have a reputation for high-quality and progressive teaching in small groups of similar ability (up to 4/6).
L’Ecole du Ski Français (ESF)
With over 100 instructors, the long-standing French national ski and snowboard school in Morzine offers traditional group and private lessons at excellent value for money. Simply Morzine can book lessons with ESF Morzine on your behalf in advance of the holiday, with payment made to us on arrival in resort (no need to pre-pay). Group sizes are usually larger than the other ski schools (up to 12).
The Snow School
The Snow School is the ESF’s ‘premium brand’, employing their most progressive ski and snowboard instructors. Lessons take place in smaller groups (4-6), with higher prices to match.
Easy2Ride Ski & Snowboard Academy
Established in 1999, Morzine’s second largest ski school (after ESF) is renowned for their wide range of group and private tuition. Using a fun approach to learning, class sizes are perhaps in the middle ground between the guaranteed small groups of BASS and the Snow School – and the larger ESF groups (up to 8).
Other highly recommended ski schools
- New Generation (multi-resort British-run ski school)
- PdS Academy (formerly with BASS before setting up independently)
- The Snow Institute (formerly with BASS before setting up independently)
Freelance ski instructors – Mike Hammond & Annie Donovan
Both Mike and Annie are vastly experienced and respected Morzine ski instructors. They offer high class private lessons, personal performance courses and children’s racing camps. Each booking is tailor-made to your individual/group’s exact requirements – whether you are a new to skiing, a progressing intermediate or advanced skier wanting specific coaching in off piste, carving, racing or bumps.
Specialist snowboard school in Morzine – Mint Snowboard school
