Private Coaching

Having a coach to yourself is a great way to accelerate the learning process and focus on something specific to your needs. Private coaching is a product that can also be used for corporate groups. With every private lesson comes the same high grade coaching standard with drill and exercises to move your skiing on. Video analysis will also be part of your private lesson if requested.

Private coaching can also be used just to have one of our team guide you around a ski resort and make sure you’re safe and skiing the right terrain for you. Our coach may also be able to help you access great powder snow and exciting descents in terrain you might not find yourself.

Another aspect of private hire of an Academy coach could be to develop your ski fitness. Our team will be able to take you through the full Warren Smith Ski Academy – Ski Fitness program.

Any member of the Ski Academy team can be hired out on a daily basis (subject to availability). Private tuition is better suited to people who require one to one coaching or who wish to bring a group out to the Alps. Private coaching is available in Verbier upon request from November – April. To check availability please contact us with your request(s)
