COVID-19 Ski School Updates

Here are our COVID-19 ski school updates at New Generation. We have been staying close to the COVID-19 situation since ski resorts closed mid-March. In the initial weeks following the closures, we were all hands on deck assisting our clients whose ski holiday was directly impacted. However, since then, we’ve been busy reevaluating our services to ensure they are more flexible than ever to suit your needs. So that when you book with New Gen, you book with confidence. Here’s what we’re doing for you.

2020.21 Winter Season COVID-19 Ski School Updates

We’re confident we will all enjoy a great upcoming winter season, but we also understand that there are many concerns you may have regarding travel and booking your next ski holiday and ski lessons. We know that travel restrictions and guidelines may change at any moment in the coming months, which is why we’ve created new flexible solutions for you. These are our COVID-19 ski school updates…

All bookings for Winter 20.21 come with the following 3 New Generation guarantees* as standard.

1. Financial Guarantee – 100% Refund Until 45 Days Before Your Lessons

Any bookings made for 2020.21 may be cancelled and lessons will be fully refunded up until 45 days before your first lesson starts (extended from the original date of November 20, 2020). No questions asked.

If you have a booking starting before January 4, 2021,  you will still have until November 20, 2020 to make any changes.

2. Flexibility – Defer Your Booking for Until 2025 – At No Cost

Need to move your lessons? You now have the option to defer your lessons until April 30, 2025, at no additional cost (extended from the original 2 year deferral). You must let us know no later than 28 days before the start of your first lesson.

3. New Generation COVID Cover

We’re also well aware that the COVID-19 situation may change over the coming months, in which case we’re offering extra reassurance for you. If one of the following happens exclusively due to COVID-19, we are offering an 80% refund up until 7 days and a 70% refund up until 48hrs before the start time of your first lesson:

  • You are prevented from travelling as a result of national or international government imposed travel restrictions.
  • You are sick with COVID-19 (you must provide a medical certificate/positive COVID-19 test as evidence).
  • Total resort closure due to national or local government action.

If you would prefer zero risk, you also have the option to pay a small fee for a 100% refund guarantee.

Zero Risk – 100% Refund Guarantee Option

We are now providing an option for you to add a ‘100% Refund Guarantee’ onto your booking. For a small fee of 7% of your booking, selected and paid for at the time of purchase, we’ll guarantee a full refund up until 48hrs before the start time of your first lesson. Please note the fee is non-refundable.

*Where applicable, these terms supersede our standard Terms & Conditions. Bookings made using credit or gift vouchers are not eligible for a cash refund and a new voucher will be issued for the appropriate amount.

Your Safety in Our Lessons

Your safety in our lessons has always been of utmost priority. And in a COVID world, we have to take additional safety measures into account as well. We know the situation is evolving and safety guidelines are ever changing.

We have set in place our COVID-19 In Resort Protocols for each country in which we operate. Please head to that link to find the latest information about what you can expect from your lesson in resort. We are keeping a close eye on government regulations in each country, and will be updating that page regularly.

Rest assured we will not be making any changes to our lessons that would inhibit our current ski and snowboard safety procedures that we already have in place. By no means will we make any changes that would hinder our ability to keep you safe on the slopes as usual.

As our team operates out of multiple countries within Europe, we’ve been keeping an eye on each country’s individual situation. Here is the latest news on how each country and its ski resorts have been re-opening.


We know you still may have additional questions and concerns beyond the logistics of your ski lessons. Here you can read our most commonly asked questions regarding COVID-19 and what you can expect from your ski holiday this coming winter.

2019.20 Winter Season: Clients Affected by COVID-19 Ski Resort Closures

For our clients who were impacted by the COVID-19 ski resort closures in March and April, we’ve been in touch with each person individually. We’ve offered personalised refund and credit solutions for all our clients, as we know a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t actually suit all.

We’re pleased to have settled up with nearly everyone, however there are still some clients we have yet to hear back from. If you are one of them, please get in touch with our team. Drop us an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
