Courchevel 1650 Ski School

Our Courchevel 1650 Ski School

Our Courchevel 1650 Ski School was our very first ski school that opened back in 1998, and the strong spirit in 1650 had not wavered since. The team is led by BASI trainer and Resort Manager Dave Morris. The Mighty New Gen 1650 team are a closenit group of instructors, many of whom have been with us for several years so they know the resort inside out.

The team hails from far and wide – from Scotland down to Italy – and has a wide range of skills from teaching tiny tots and beginners, right through to leading off piste adventures or even offering something a little different such as a cross-country skiing or telemarking taster session. We also can offer adaptive ski lessons for those with sensory, cognitive or physical disabilities. And several of our team in Courchevel also coach trainee instructors as part of our instructor courses so they are able to teach to an extremely high level.

Staying elsewhere in Courchevel? We also offer lessons just up the hill in Courchevel 1850 and in La Tania as well.

Courchevel 1650 Ski School Meeting Point

The New Generation Courchevel 1650 ski school meeting point is underneath the lift line of the Ariondaz bubble. When you’re at the foot of the pistes looking at the large piste map you’ll see a small set of stairs to your right. Go up these stairs and up the small slope. We meet just above, between the two drag lifts. Look out for our bright blue uniforms.

Courchevel 1650 FAQ’s

What lift pass will I need for the lessons?

For adults level 1 & 2 and kids Wallabies and Whippersnappers groups, you can buy a Courchevel Mini Pass. This gives you access to the bubble that will take you up to the magic carpet. Please let your instructor know, as they will advise what to buy when you start to go further afield. All other groups will need a Courchevel valley lift pass for your lessons. You won’t go into the Three Valleys in our groups although higher level skiers might want to explore outside of lessons. Day upgrades can be bought for this purpose though if you don’t want to buy a week’s Three Valley pass.

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.

Where can I get my skis and snowboard equipment?

There are a number of ski hire shops in Courchevel 1650. We recommend Francis Blanc which is opposite the tourist office and slightly up the hill.

Or if you’re considering buying your own ski boots (a worthwhile and wise investment for comfort and performance) then pop in for a free assessment at The Boot Lab, who we share a shop with in Courchevel 1650.

I’m staying at a different level village. How can I get to my lessons?

There is a regular bus service in Courchevel which links Courchevel 1650 and 1850 every 10mins during the day and which runs up to Courchevel 1650 from 1550 and Le Praz every 30mins. Bus timetables are displayed at each bus stop.

Feedback from our clients in Courchevel 1650

“My son and partner had a fantastic week with Sam, a true professional who was at ease with both adults and children…..although both were beginners, he gave them a huge amount of confidence with his relaxed and fun-filled approach and incredibly, by the end of the week, they were both skiing amazingly well! Having previous years experience of another ski school, I was really impressed with New Generation and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again!”

“This is our fourth holiday with New Generation and the instructors were again patient and knowledgeable. We all felt that we improved our skiiing. Our 9 year old had great fun in the Rockets as learning was done through play.”

“I’ve skied a number of times (with good skiers) but it’s the first time I’ve had lessons. Now I don’t think I can do without them! My husband was right – he said there was only so much he could teach me and that I ought to take lessons from a ski school in order to progress. I’m so glad I did. Not only did I learn a lot but it was a lot of fun too. Thank you so much Emanuele! I thought he was terrific.”
