What this ski school has to say…

“In 1998, we decided to create our own ski school after realising our clients wanted smaller ski groups with a more personal touch than was on offer in many other ski schools. In our opinion a ski school has to be on a human scale. It is a guarantee of quality because each new instructor who integrates the team must be impeccable. We are pleased to see that every day Snocool instructors convey their passion with pleasure. For us the most important will always be to make your vacation a success.”

PDS Academy

What this ski school has to say…

“We provide lessons for all ages. Group lessons for children range from 6 – 15 years old, usually running for three hours a day over five days. We only offer private lessons for children aged 3, 4 and 5 as we feel they need too much individual attention for group lessons. New for this season we are offering personal adult group lessons. These will be for three days for two hours a day and have a maximum of four people in, allowing for individual feedback. We also offer private lessons for adults. This is a popular choice for those working on confidence.”
