Inter-season Instruction

Alison can provide private lessons during the interseason.  Clients have often found this useful to prepare for instructor exams or to get some extra mileage in before the season starts.  There is glacier skiing in Zermatt, Saas Fee and Tignes which are all within a few hours drive of Chamonix.  The rate for interseason lessons are £300 per day plus expenses.


Lessons will be based at one of the resorts in the Chamonix Valley: Les Houches, Brévent, Flégère, Le Tour or Les Grands Montets.  The exact location will be confirmed depending on your requirements, and snow and weather conditions.

Full day lessons can be carried out in Verbier or Courmayeur but travel expenses will need to be covered.
