Your private instructor can alternate lessons with parents, children, friends, take the entire group to the 3 Valleys, bring back those who are tired by the easiest route, organize appointments on the slopes between different members of the family etc.

What SKIPROGRESSION does not offer:

Group Lessons.

SKIPROGRESSION pupil numbers are too few to effectively run group lessons for all levels.
Rather than offering a mediocre service, SKIPROGRESSION prefers to focus on highly flexible private ski and snowboard lessons.

However, SKIPROGRESSION can cater to families and groups of friends.

Helicopter transport.

The helicopter is a means of easily accessing off-piste terrain that is not served by the ski lifts.
It’s a very noisy and polluting form of transport. In Courchevel especially, flights over the resort are sometimes so numerous that they become a real nuisance for both people and wildlife.

Despite the demand, SKIPROGRESSION refuses to use it. However, SKIPROGRESSION does offer Ski Touring and the instructors will be happy to show you the most beautiful off-piste skiing in The 3 Valleys.

The simple pleasure of making his mark in perfect snow.


Exciting and entertaining, the first hours of learning are more difficult than alpine skiing. Once the basics have been acquired, progression for most people is quite quick.
Snowboarding is particularly well adapted to powder snow and fun on a groomed piste, even with relatively hard snow. But snowboarding is much less pleasant on bumpy or icy slopes and long flat sections and crossings can be quite tedious.
