"3 teenagers had a 2 hour session with Antoine - absolutely loved it! They had been skiing twice before, so not complete beginners, and had previously had lessons in both trips (not in Morzine, different schools), but Antoine filled them with confidence, they had lots of fun and finished the lesson keen to do more - perfect start to a great week!"

Learn to ski in Morzine


Situated close to the Swiss border in the Haute Savoie region of south-eastern France and just over an hour’s drive from Geneva, Morzine is a pretty and traditional town with wood & slate chalets. The resort lies at an altitude of 1000m, directly within the heart of the Portes du Soleil skiing region. With its neighbour Avoriaz, Morzine is one of the most northerly French Alpine resorts, both resorts benefitting from the glacial snow conditions of the nearby Mont Blanc.

The Portes du Soleil skiing region encompasses 12 resorts and offers a total of 650km of slopes. Within the region are three different sectors: Pleney, which, thanks to the numerous blue slopes, is the destination of all ski schools in Morzine for their beginner lessons; Nyon, the sector that offers the best runs for experienced skiers, and Chamossières.

Ski lessons for beginners in Morzine


Ski schools in Morzine welcome beginner skiers from 5yrs upwards, lessons lasting for 2-2,5hrs. Lesson groups have a maximum of 8 skiers and are divided according to age and experience level.

Ski novices are taught their very first technique basics on the two beginner slopes by the Pléney, which is higher up in Morzine. Many beginners use the higher green Plény run to practice the snowplough after lessons, this being accessed by the TS du Belvedere lift.

Beginners who have mastered the first moves graduate onto the blue pistes within the resort. Here, the Pléney is also ideal, having various excellent blue runs such as the Piste B, Piste C and Piste D, all of which head down towards the bottom of the Pléney télécabine. Ski schools in Morzine recommend Piste B as the ideal confidence builder, as the run is long, leisurely and doesn’t have any steep sections.

Advancing beginners head to Piste C and Piste G, which are accessed by the TS des Fys and TS d’Atray lifts. These runs have steeper gradients and are ideal for working on technique.

Kids’ ski lessons in Morzine


Kids’ ski lessons in Morzine are available from the age of 5yrs. Ski schools in Morzine offer beginner lesson packages with equipment and a ski pass for the Morzine Les Gets beginner slopes included, so young skiers really have the best prerequisites for a successful first skiing holiday.

Group lessons have a maximum 8 participants, the groups being arranged according to the children’s ages and skiing experience. Lessons can be taken in the morning or afternoon and generally last for 2-2,5hrs, although some ski schools in Morzine offer full-day lessons.

First-timer skiers are taken to the beginner slopes up at the Pléney, which has two green slopes, plus a children's zone where the very young skiers can practise. Ski schools in Morzine meet for their beginners’ lessons at the Pléney gondola, either directly at the base station or at the top station.

Ski novices start with the basic moves of glide and snowplough. Once these have been well-established, the group moves onto green and blue slopes that are more challenging and have a slight gradient.

Lessons for young intermediate skiers focus on parallel turns and improving posture. Whether the children are first-time skiers or have already advanced onto red or even black runs, the instructor takes the students to slopes according to their level to ensure further progress. Ski schools in Morzine have a medal presentation at the end of the week, so no matter whatever the level, every young skier finishes the week with a sense of achievement.

How do we find offers in our language?

Under the menu item "Language" you can select a desired language. Afterwards only offers will be shown where this language is available.

When should we book?

During the holiday weeks, ski and snowboard courses are usually fully booked. In order to make sure that there is still a place available in the desired ski or snowboard course, the motto is: the sooner the better.

How do we find our appropriate experience level?

Next to the menu item "Experience level" you will find a description of the individual experience levels. If you're still not sure, you don't need to worry. Simply choose the experience level that best suits your abilities. Before the first lesson of a group course, ski schools will assess your abilities so that you can be placed in the right group. In any case, private instructors will take your abilities into account on an individual basis.

How do we find offers including equipment?

All offers including equipment are marked with the inscription "Ski rental included". If you find the inscription "Ski rental optional" you can book the equipment for this offer. You will find offers including equipment faster if you select the filter "Ski rental including" under the menu item "Popular options". Depending on the provider, an offer including equipment contains: skis, ski poles, ski boots and helmet. You will find a detailed list of the included rental items in the respective offer description.

There is no offer including equipment, where can we alternatively rent equipment?

In a ski resort there is almost without exception the possibility to rent winter sports equipment. If you book via CheckYeti, you will receive discounts from our partner Skiset, where you can conveniently reserve your equipment online.

How many participants are usually in a group?

This depends on the ski school. Some ski schools have a maximum number of participants per group. You can find this information in the descriptions of the offers.

At what age can children ski or snowboard?

There is no fixed age limit here. Supported by specially trained children's ski instructors, children can already learn to ski playfully at kindergarten age. Depending on the children's level of motoric and social development, the ideal starting age is between 4 and 5 years. Occasionally there are children who can already learn to ski at the age of 3 1/2 years.

How many days should the lessons last for our children?

During the holiday weeks, children's ski courses for beginners usually start on Sunday or Monday. The program is designed in such a way that the best learning results are achieved when your children take part in the ski course throughout the week. So they don't miss the final event (race, etc.) and experience a great week with their group. For advanced children the learning success usually kicks in on the third day.

Is it better to put our child in a group lesson or a private tuition?

The group lessons are generally recommended for beginners. Learning together with peers is more fun. The children are not constantly in the focus and have the possibility to catch their breath between the individual exercises, while the other children are on it. In order not to underchallenge highly talented children, a private ski instructor is recommended.

Can we join our child with a private instructor?

Yes, that's possible. Some providers even offer special family offers. Otherwise, you can simply book a private instructor for children or adults and inform the ski school after booking that you would like to go together.
