Ski Schools in St. Moritz

Learn to ski in St. Moritz


Located at an altitude of 1800m in the Engadin, a high valley in the canton of Graubünden, St. Moritz is one of the most famous luxury ski resorts in Switzerland. Offering a blend of glamour, lifestyle, sport and unspoiled nature, St. Moritz has hosted the Winter Olympics twice and is home to the Cresta Run, a world-championship bobsled run created from natural ice.

The ski area St. Moritz - Corviglia is part of the large ski alliance Engadin St. Moritz, which offers 155km of slopes and comprises of 5 smaller ski resorts; the family-friendly St. Moritz - Corviglia, the more demanding Corvatsch, the high alpine Diavolezza/Lagalb, Celerina near St. Moritz and the family paradise Zuoz.

St. Moritz - Corviglia is located 2.5hrs from Zurich and 3hrs from Milan and Bolzano. The mountain Corviglia is situated in the heart of the ski alliance at an altitude of 2486m and the ski schools in St. Moritz use the local slopes of Marguns (2278m), Salastrains (2048m), Signal (2130m), the Munt da San Murezzan (2659m), Corviglia (2489m) and the Piz Nair - the highest mountain of the resort at 3057m - for their lessons.

Ski lessons for beginners in St. Moritz


Ski schools in St. Moritz offer primarily private lessons, which offer highly focused help and so ensures faster learning progress. Group ski lessons are available for adult skiers of all levels, lessons lasting 2hrs per day and groups having a minimum of 2 participants. The meeting point for lessons is at the AUDI QUATTRO Bar in Corviglia.

In the very first ski lessons, the ski schools in St. Moritz focus on the basic moves of the snowplough and glide. These lessons take place on the flattest slopes within the resort, to ensure that the novice skiers have the minimum of stress whilst familiarising themselves with their equipment. Once these two moves are well-established, lessons progress to slopes with a slight gradient and the snowplough turn is introduced.

The ski schools in St. Moritz take their skiers with previous experience directly to slopes that suit their ability. The instructors ensure that the skiers are competent in each skiing technique before new skills are learned.

Ski beginners have a range of easy slopes to practice on after lessons, the blue runs no. 27 & 28 being recommended by the ski schools in St.Moritz, as they lead directly back to the town.

Kids’ ski lessons in St. Moritz


The ski schools in St. Moritz focus on private ski lessons for kids aged 3yrs and above. Private lessons ensure that the little skier receives individual attention, meaning that the basics can be learned thoroughly and more quickly. Private ski lessons are booked for either a half or full day at a time, the meeting point for lessons being arranged individually.

As with the adult lessons for first-time skiers, the ski schools in St. Moritz firstly teach their young ski novices the two techniques of the glide and the snowplough. These lessons generally take place either on the beginner slopes of the Salastrains area, which is just about St. Moritz, or on the easy slopes around the Corviglia area, which is accessed by the Corviglia Funicular directly from the town.

Young skiers who have previously skied are taken directly to slopes that suit their ability, whether blue, red or even black. Here, the ski schools in St. Moritz focus on optimising the skier’s style and posture, and on introducing more challenging techniques and terrains, such as carving and freeride skiing.

For both intermediate and less advanced skiers, the ski schools in St. Moritz recommend heading up to the Plateau Nair at 2656, which is the starting point for several red runs plus the blue no.5 run.

FAQs

How do we find a suitable activity?

In every ski resort you will find an overview of all available offers. On the left side you have filters to quickly find the right offer. For example, you can search specifically for beginner ski courses for children in groups.

How do we find offers for our desired date?

Under the menu item "Select course date" in the upper left corner of the page you can select a desired start date. At the top of the search results you will find the offers for the desired start date. Below follow offers in a similar period.

How do we find group lessons or private instructors?

Group courses are marked with "Group". You can search specifically for group courses by selecting the "Group" filter under the "Category" menu item. Private teachers are marked with the inscription "Private". You can search for private teachers by selecting the "Private" filter under the "Category" menu item.

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.
