Val Thorens Ski & Snowboard School

Our Val Thorens Ski School has been in action since 2014 and is headed up by directors Luke Gerrett and Heidi Edmunds. An experienced instructor, Luke notched up many years of experience teaching for us in Verbier and Val d’Isère, before settling in the Three Valleys. Situated at a high altitude and part of the Three Valleys, this snow-sure resort is a favourite amongst families and student groups alike. Luke and Heidi also run our successful ski school in St Martin de Belleville and are thrilled to also be a part of the popular Val Thorens.

Always touted as a British ski school, we now like to think of ourselves as international. Our Val Thorens ski and snowboard instructors come from many countries bringing a variety of language skills and personalities to the group.  The Val Thorens team are all highly experienced and fully qualified and teach all level of skiers or boarders from cautious first-timers through to off-piste adventurers!

Eager to try something new? Our team can also offer telemark & cross-country ski lessons on request. Our experienced instructors and off-hill support team in Val Thorens know the importance of making every day count. And they’ll ensure a smooth experience from the time of enquiry through to your journey home.

What lift pass will I need for the lessons?

Beginners will not need a lift pass for day 1 as there is a free beginner area at the foot of the pistes. Your instructor will tell you when you need to buy a lift pass.

All other groups will need a Val Thorens – Orelle valley lift pass for your lessons. There is such vast range of terrain on our doorstep in Val Thorens, so we normally don’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.
