Courchevel 1850 Ski School

Our Courchevel 1850 Ski School

We love skiing in Courchevel 1850 in the Three Valleys, where there is a large range of pistes from lovely gentle greens to steep and challenging blacks – there really is something for everyone. Our Courchevel 1850 ski school is led by Andrea Vitton who has been with New Gen since 2007, and like many Italians Andrea learned to ski before he could walk.

Andrea leads up the Courchevel 1850 team, many of whom have been with us for a number of years, and in that time have amassed lots of experience teaching skiers and boarders of all levels, from tiny tots aged 4, to semi-pros and beyond. In fact some of the Courchevel team also coach our trainees undertaking instructor courses. After being with us for many years, the team knows the resort inside out so they’ll help you find the best snow and the most suitable terrain to help you build confidence and enjoy your holiday. Fancy something a bit different? We can also offer telemarking lessons in Courchevel 1850 for those who want to give it a go.

Staying elsewhere in Courchevel? We also offer lessons just down the hill in Courchevel 1650.

Courchevel 1850 Ski School Meeting Point

The New Generation Courchevel 1850 ski school meeting point is situated next to the top of the Tovets chair lift. It is below the Croisette building on the opposite side of the road, just on the edge of the piste near Kudeta. If you’re on skis, just ski under the bridge near the bottom of the piste and we meet just after it on the right. Look out for our bright blue uniforms.

Courchevel 1850 FAQ’s

What lift pass will I need for the lessons?

Unfortunately you need to take a lift to access the beginner area so all 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.

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 ski and snowboard equipment?

There are a wide selection of hire shops in 1850. Shop around to get the best price.

Boot Fitting Specialists

If you are considering buying ski boots (a worthy investment for comfort and performance) we recommend The Boot Lab in Courchevel 1650 or Meribel. Each boot fit is conducted by a boot fitting specialist, with a through free assessment and comes with a comfort guarantee.

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 1850 from 1550 and Le Praz every 30mins. Bus timetables are displayed at each bus stop.

Alternatively, if you are staying in Le Praz you can catch the Foret bubble up and either walk to our meeting point, or ski down and get the Plantrey chair up to reach our meeting point on skis.

Or, if you’re staying in 1550, take the Tovets chair or Grangette bubble up.

Feedback from our clients in Courchevel 1850

“New Gen team in Courchevel 1850 are well organised and very professional. Had private lessons with Tom in Dec and Jan and have improved immensely. Have enjoyed my skiing so much more…. An excellent instructor, very patient and with lots of good tips and now progressed to some reds! Will definitely book again.”

“My instructor, Pete, was excellent. As a novice to skiing, he gave the perfect amount of time between skiing and technical teaching and all times. He didn’t try and instil one type of skiing but recognised my own limitations and strengths and worked on those. I would definitely use him and New Generation again.

“Booked two sets of group lessons in Courchevel for our children ages 5-10. We had Valentina. Kids loved the lessons. Their skiing really improved. Valentina kindly made some video clips for us which were lovely to see. This is the second year we have used New Gen and both times they were great. Will definitely use again!”
