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?

Serre Chevalier FAQ’s

What lift pass will I need for the lessons?

If you happily ski blue runs and above, the best value ski pass for a week-long stay is the 6 day Serre Chevalier lift pass. 
For novices, ‘beginner’ passes can be purchased daily at around 14 € with a subsequent Serre Chevalier upgrade for the remaining days of your holiday (this will give you access to all sectors of Serre Chevalier.) Be sure to check the deals your tour operator or accommodation supplier can offer as substantial savings can be made.

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.

Feedback from our clients in Serre Chevalier

“Superb! Mel, Gavin, Jean-Mi at New Gen Serre Chevalier / EurekaSki absolutely excellent as ever. Thank you!“

Will H. April 2017

Brilliant lessons with a great teacher! Great lessons….my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her time with Gavin and I can’t recommend his lessons highly enough! Many thanks!”

Angus R., April 2017

“‘Gavin has taught both myself and my husband so when we wanted our children to learn to ski he was our first choice. The availability of lessons with him was one of the key factors in choosing the resort for their first skiing holiday. We were very happy with the result. Gavin is wonderfully patient and a great instructor. Our children made great progress that was apparent after only one lesson and they went from strength to strength.

March 2017

“Bravo to Mel and Gavin. Everything ran smoothly – which in half term week is no mean feat. My son loved his group lessons and made amazing progress. I spent an afternoon focusing on technique for advancing as an instructor. It couldn’t have gone better – moguls are no longer something to be dreaded!”

February 2017

“New Generation – the best ski school in Serre Chevalier! Brilliant as always – Gavin is so patient when we don’t get it quite right but pushes us to be the best we can be and as always we come home better skiers than when we arrived. Also a mention for the girls in the office – always efficient and helpful which makes booking easy and hassle free. See you next year – we wouldn’t book lessons with anyone else!”

February 2017

“I need to do this again! From start to finish I had a great experience with New Generation Serre Chevalier. Mel was very attentive and responsive to my emails and Gavin was a very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful guide. I’d say that ski touring with Gavin was one of the best experiences of my life (on skis)! I can’t wait until next season when I can go back and do it again!”
