Serre Chevalier Ski School

Our Serre Chevalier Ski School

Beginners making their first turns, nervous skiers, intermediates who are eager to fix what they’re doing wrong. Proficient fall-line skiers wanting to up their game. Skiers hankering after some serious fun in the trees off-piste. Children demanding more than ‘boring ski school’. These are just a few of the types of skiers we have a blast spending our winters with!

Our Serre Chevalier ski school is led by B.A.S.I. ski teacher and ex-examiner Gavin Crosby who has been living and skiing in Serre Chevalier since 2001. Gavin and his colleagues know the resort inside out. When are you coming out to the ‘secret of the Alps’ that is Serre Chevalier?

Feedback from our clients in Serre Chevalier

As ever absolutely brilliant experience. My 13 yr old son had a personal off piste ski lesson with Gavin. He wouldn’t shut up about it for days after. Gavin’s experience and patient style made this a truly wonderful experience for my son. Thank you Gavin for looking after him and thank you New Generation for being there to provide a brilliant skiing service. I would absolutely recommend New Generation everytime.

4th year with New Generation Ski School for our children, always positive feedback. Small groups.”

February 2016

The only ski school we consider if they are in resort. Gavin Crosby in Serre Chevalier is amazing and has brought us on in leaps and bounds yet again this year. The tuition is structured and professionally delivered but it feels like you’re skiing with a friend. The knowledge about the resort and the best slopes to ski is second to none. Can’t fault the service in any way.
