Zermatt ski schools – Lots of choices
We work closely with a number of Zermatt ski schools to ensure that our guests can benefit from the experience of some of Zermatt’s best ski and snowboard instructors. We contact all of our guests before their stay to establish their requirements and make the necessary bookings. During peak weeks instructors can be difficult to book so we do encourage our guests to let us know as soon as possible what lessons they will require.
Group classes are available starting on Sundays or Mondays. It is generally not possible to join a group class later in the week although some schools do run group classes that can be joined just for the day for all levels.
