Serre Chevalier Ski Lessons

Here at New Generation’s Serre Chevalier Ski School, we have a blast all winter skiing with all type of skiers, including:

  • Beginners making their first turns.
  • Nervous skiers and ‘intermediates’ eager to quickly 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’.

Our Serre Chevalier ski school is led by BASI ski teacher and ex-examiner Gavin Crosby. Gavin has been living and skiing in Serre Chevalier since 2001, he has French/British dual-nationality and holds the ‘BEES 1er degré ‘ (French carte professionnelle). He knows Serre Chevalier’s mountains inside out and is looking forward to sharing them with you!

Yet again, Gavin more than delivered. He has brilliant and creative ways to help you re-think your skiing. He continues to help us adults improve and try new things and our children feel safe and inspired skiing with him. His love of the mountains and of skiing is infectious too! We love Serre Chevalier, but even if we didn’t, we would come back here specifically for Gavin’s teaching. Matt, April 2019

    Serre Chevalier FAQ’s

    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.

    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!”
