In our experience beginner, intermediate and expert skiers benefit from ski lessons in their native language helps makes the information given clearer and means individuals get the best out of their skiing.

Unlike other ski schools, our ski instructors aren't restricted to the same resort every day. This allows them to visit another Swiss resort to continue providing you with ski lessons in a different ski resort for continuity in your development.

Beginner Skiing in the Portes du Soliel

Private lessons are popular in the Portes du Soliel because of its wide selection of runs that are perfect for beginner skiers hoping to get their best first experience on snow.

Many ski schools operate from all the corners of the area From Les Gets to Morzine on the French side to Champery and Morgins on the Swiss side. Each one has great learning facilities.

Our favourite spots to introduce individuals and a group of skiers to the sport are the slopes around Les Crosetes and Morgins.

Intermediate Skiing in the Portes du Soliel

Intermediates will find the slopes of Champéry perfect because the red and blue runs it offers are numerous and relatively quiet. As a ski school, we love to run lessons here!

A hidden gem of a run can be found in Morgins. We are talking about the Didier Défago run named after the local Olympic downhill champion. It is accessed from the back of the Aiguille du Champey chairlift and runs back to Morgins village from the top of Champoussin. It is rarely skied.

In Champoussin At 1580m you can find one of the longest ski runs in the area lasting 7km and is a great experience for intermediate skiers. The resort is fairly snow-sure and we often head there with our private group ski lessons.

There are also plenty of runs to keep intermediate skiers carving over in Morzine and Les Gets. One stand out is the Aigle Rouge over on the Nyon area!

Expert Skiing in the Portes du Soleil

One for the bucket list for the expert skier is Le Chavenette (The Swiss Wall).  The Wall is a local legend and is a moguled run that 2km with 50degrees of steepness.  

​The Wall is serious. Don't take it lightly. Lots of people get hurt every season. It isn’t to be talked unless you are confident with both steeps and moguls. 

There is a two-way lift for beginner and intermediate skiers that runs up and down you can watch the other skiers going down the wall.
