About New Generation

About New Generation

New Generation Ski and Snowboard School have been coaching for 17 years and we are now based in 16 ski resorts across the French, Swiss and Austrian Alps. This year we’ve added a new resort, and our first foray into Austria with the addition of St Anton. We love sharing our love of skiing, snowboarding and the mountains with our clients and helping them to have the most enjoyable and memorable ski holiday possible.

We use Feefo, an independent feedback provider (and post it here for everyone to see), so you can trust the great reputation New Generation Ski and Snowboard School has. With New Generation you’ll be taught by an excellent, qualified teacher (not just a great skier or snowboarder) and go away with some great skiing and snowboarding skills as well as memories.

“Our children both really enjoyed and made good progress in their lessons. Our teenage son especially enjoyed his lessons with Jerome, who focussed on freeride as well as technique! New Gen kept us informed about whether the children’s lessons would be group or individual, even before arrival in resort. Amy was always around at the start and end of lessons, and even came to meet us in our chalet the evening we arrived. Definitely the best ski school our children have been to, and would highly recommend.”

“Fabulous instructors! The children did really well, and they made us adults feel at ease. Would highly recommend!”

“This was my second year with lessons from Ross Sampson at New Generation. He is quite simply the best ski instructor I have ever had. With Ross’s advice from my lessons, I was zooming down red runs by the end of the week at the same speed as my boyfriend who has been skiing for 20 years. Looking forward to my next lesson in January!”

“I was particularly impressed by the no-quibble flexibility built into the booking in relation to how many people booked on to the refresher course. Ale was excellent instructor and demonstrated excellent insight to identify the (biggest) deficiencies in my technique. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Ale and New Generation to others.”

“Had two lessons with the brilliant Tom who was an outstanding instructor. One of our best ski school experiences in that I feel we have made much more progress than in similar lessons with other providers and will definitely use New Gen again in the future.”

Meet The Team

It’s not all about the lessons. We couldn’t run a Ski and Snowboard School without our “off hill team” who are constantly beavering away, organising your ski and snowboard lessons, setting you up with the right ski instructors and coaches to make sure you get the best from your time with us. As well as the in resort teams we also have offices in Courchevel, Meribel, Verbier and the United Kingdom.

17 years’ ski coaching experience

We’ve been coaching in the Alps for 17 years and have spent that time working to understand how to help people change as well as finding out what makes  a good holiday great.

Experienced off hill support

Behind the scenes we have an experienced team beavering away to ensure that everything runs smoothly and to be there in case you need them before, during or after your holiday.

Ski lessons are taught in English

All our lessons are in English (unless you’d prefer a different language!) and our company is still run by one of our original founders, Tom Saxlund. He’s half Norwegian (which is why he likes Glög)
