Our Peisey Vallandry Ski School is one of our longest-standing teams, headed up by John Thomas an ex BASI examiner and semi-professional cyclist who moved to the area in 2003.
In the nearly 20 years since opening John and the team have discovered the best places to go, the perfect pistes for a confidence boost and the hidden tracks in the woods for a challenging adventure off-piste.
We know it’s the little things that count. Whether you’re looking for lessons and coaching, a bespoke package for your corporate trip or to find the best lunch spot, our experienced team have got it covered.
The New Generation Peisey Vallandry Ski School meeting point is situated at the bottom of the Vallandry chairlift (No 74), just in front of the Bistrot Savoyard. It is immediately adjacent to the main lift queue, on the right-hand side.
It’s about a 9hr drive once in France to reach Peisey Vallandry. The benefits of driving are no luggage restrictions and the option of an extra day skiing during a week’s holiday but the tolls can be quite pricey on the motorways so something to consider.
