Course Info

The course will be running continuously from Monday to Friday. Unless you are planning to take a day or two extra at either end of your trip, you should aim to arrive in resort the night before the course and depart either on a late evening Friday flight or Saturday flight. The courses are designed to build and develop skill and confidence, to enable people to ski all terrains including Moguls, Steeps, Variables, Powder and how to Carve effectively on piste.

Skills are developed by practicing specific exercises that benefit the main topics. Progressively, the new skills are tested in suitable terrains to build confidence. Each skier is also looked at from an individual point of view to help understand their strengths and improve upon their weaknesses.

We ski each day from 10am until 3pm and take a lunch break at approximately 12.30pm. We will be filming regularly and doing video analysis throughout the week. The videos will be reviewed and analysed most days at convenient times that don’t interfere with skiing.

The groups are a maximum of 6 per instructor.

The course is suitable for Academy levels 1-6 on our rating scale. If you’re not sure of your level please have a look at the videos here.

If you’re looking to fly to Verbier, Geneva is the closest commercial airport with numerous flights available from all major airlines. Once you get to Geneva airport you can get to Verbier by Train (www.sbb.ch) or if preferred there are numerous transfer companies that offer the route such as Alpybus or Alpine express.

If you’re looking to get to resort in a more environmentally friendly way or just don’t like flying; the train journey from London is really straightforward and a pleasure to experience. You can use https://www.thetrainline.com to find prices and look at the journey simply choose London-Lausanne or London-Geneva and your dates. For the leg in Switzerland the info and Swiss website above will provide that information but that will be a very small portion of the journey.

If you book early or have quite a lot of ski kit to bring out the train choice can often be the more cost effective choice too!

If you love to ski & genuinely want to improve your technique , the coaching from the Academy team is as good as it gets. Superb instruction, easy to understand, challenging at 1st to master but what a game changer after 5 days when you do. I have done numerous weeks with the academy & my skiing always gets taken to the next level
