Ski Schools in Verbier

Learn to ski in Verbier


Located at an altitude of 1500m in the French-speaking Swiss canton of Valais and around 2hrs drive from Geneva and Bern, Verbier is one of the 6 ski resorts - Verbier, Bruson, La Tzoumaz, Veysonnaz, Nendaz and Thyon - that together form the huge ski resort Les Quatre Vallées.

Les Quatre Vallées was founded in 1983, with the opening of the Mont Fort cable-car. The region covers nearly 100 lifts and more than 400km slopes, at altitudes between 1250m and 3330m at the peak of the Mont Fort glacier. The high altitudes and excellent terrain make for exceptional snow conditions and all-round enjoyable skiing.

Thanks to its nightlife and après ski programme, Verbier also has the reputation for being Switzerland's liveliest resort. With exceptional pistes and mountain scenery offering stunning views of the Mont Blanc and Combins Massif, it’s hardly surprising that Verbier is as a firm favourite amongst royalty and the rich & famous.

Ski lessons for beginners in Verbier


With three nursery areas situated close to the town centre, Verbier really is ideal for beginners. The resort offers ski lessons from age 3yrs, the youngest learners being taught their first skiing moves at the Kids Club, situated at the base station of the Moulins lift, in the centre of Verbier.

The ski pass price for the nursery areas is slightly cheaper, the prices varying depending on the season. Lift passes for access to the magic carpets can be bought for a half day or a full day.

Children's lesson groups are determined by their age and ability, whilst adult lessons are determined by ability and interests. Beginners over the age of 5yrs have their first lessons at the beginner areas within the resort, most ski schools in Verbier heading for the largest beginner area, Les Esserts, which has short and gentle slopes, a drag lift & 2 magic carpets.

Beginners who are steady on their skis and have successfully mastered the glide and snowplough progress to the Le Rouge area, where the slopes are slightly more inclined, and eventually to the blue runs at La Chaux, further up the mountain. Here, the ski schools in Verbier work on confidence building whilst slowly introducing parallel turns to their novice skiers.

Advanced beginners looking to progress after having established the basics can buy a Verbier-only ski pass from as little as 4 hours, the pass giving access to 9 blue runs and 4 liason runs. The ski schools in Verbier will advise which is the best pass for the skier’s ability.

Kids’ ski lessons in Verbier


In Verbier, children can have ski lessons from the age of 3yrs. Ski schools in Verbier take their youngest skiers, aged 3-5yrs, to learn their first moves at the Kids Club slopes within the village, which is by the Moulins lift base station. These slopes are very flat and ideal for little learners, with magic carpets and a drag lift.

Young learners who already have some skiing experience are taken to the beginner slopes with a gentle gradient at Le Rouge, or directly to the blue runs at La Chaux, further up the mountain. The La Chaux runs are easily accessed by the Médran, thanks to the recently-built La Chaux Express Combi-Mix lift, the runs no.1&2 being recommended as ideal blues for improving technique.

La Chaux is also the destination for the ski schools in Verbier with their young intermediate skiers; from here, a number of impressive red runs offer the chance to further technique with great views included. For intermediates wanting to practice closer to Verbier, the Savoleyres area offers various runs that can be accessed directly from the village.
