Serre Chevalier Ski School

Our Serre Chevalier Ski School

Our clients include beginners making their first turns, nervous skiers and intermediates who are eager to fix what they’re doing wrong, proficient fall-line skiers wanting to up their game and who are hankering after an adventure, teens looking for serious fun in the trees and, not forgetting, the growing number of skiers who are keen to sample a day’s ski guiding with tips along the way.

Our Serre Chevalier ski school is led by BASI ski teacher and ex-examiner Gavin Crosby and has been running since 2010. But Gavin arrived in Serre Chevalier much, much earlier when he set up Serre Chevalier’s first British ski school in 2001. Gavin and his team know the resort inside out.

Serre Chevalier FAQ’s

What lift pass will I need for the lessons?

If you happily ski blue runs and above, the best value ski pass for a week-long stay is the 6 day Serre Chevalier lift pass. 
For novices, ‘beginner’ passes can be purchased daily at around 12 € with a subsequent Serre Chevalier upgrade for the remaining days of your holiday (this will give you access to all sectors of Serre Chevalier.) Be sure to check the deals your tour operator or accommodation supplier can offer as substantial savings can be made.

What happens if I’m in the wrong group?

We do our best to ensure that this doesn’t happen during the booking process. If your instructor feels that you are in the wrong group however we will do our best to move you into a more suitable level.

Feedback from our clients in Serre Chevalier

“As always we received an impeccable service from New Generation Ski – Mel’s efficiency in organising our children’s ski lessons, passes and the pre-booking of equipment, meant our first morning was really easy and hassle free! Thank you Mel. But our biggest thank you has to go to Gav for his endless patience, jokes, entertainment and brilliant instruction. Our kids came back every day grinning from ear to ear, having LOVED their lesson, so full of pride at their achievements. Both children were brimming with confidence by the end of the week and delighted to receive their certificates and badges. Thank you NGS!“

“Great teaching from Gavin. The boys improved so much over the course of the week and they have both gained confidence. Thank you. We’re already booking next year.”

“Kiki our instructor in Monetier Le Bains was excellent. She explained principles and techniques well, she answered our questions knowledgeably and helped us to practise. An excellent instructor and we really felt our lessons helped enormously.”
