  • Passholders Only - The ski school classes will be made up entirely of European Gay Ski Week Passholders. Non passholders are not allowed to join these classes.
  • Small Classes - Maximum number of people in each group: 9 people. This optimises learning time and ensures close attention is paid to all group members. These classes are subject to a minimum of 5 people per class and in exceptional circumstances the classes may have 10 participants. If there are 4 or less people in a particular ability class you will be transferred to a general ski school class of the same ability or offered a full refund.
  • Late Start - We know you like to go out in the evenings so classes start later than usual with Non beginners @ 10:00 and Beginners @ 10:30. giving you time to get up and have breakfast without rushing.
  • Beginners - Classes start 10:30 Sunday and run through to Thursday. Two hours every morning, two hours for lunch at our Lunchtime meeting place and two hours in the afternoon
  • Classes 1 to 4 - Start on Monday morning giving you a chance to get your ski legs back before the start of your class. Morning only lessons - allowing you time to socialise and enjoy a leisurely lunch on the mountain, prior to sloping off to play with your friends.
  • Off Piste Masterclass - Starts  Tuesday morning, we recommend you join either our fast or super fast hosted groups for Sunday and Monday before joining the Masterclass. To join the Off Piste Masterclass we would recommend that you can Ski all pistes including blacks confidently however during very tricky conditions such as low visibility or ice you may find black runs more challenging.

When choosing your ski school lessons book the class you think best applies to your ability. Your instructor, having evaluated your ability, may advise moving you to a different class that best suits your needs.
