Ski lessons in Chatel

Whether you are learning to ski for the first time or you are an experienced skier with many mogul fields under your belt it is always useful to have a few pointers from a pro.

Here is a list of the best ski schools in Chatel.

British Alpine Ski School

BASS is the British ski school based in Chatel.  They are our preferred choice for group lessons as they have small group sizes and very good British instructors.

Using the BASI coaching system, their teaching style is excellent for all abilities and age groups.

The lessons are two hours long starting and finishing in Pre La Joux, and the cost is £200 for 5 mornings.

Ecole de ski Francais

ESF is the largest ski school in Chatel, with an office in the high street next to the pharmacy.

This is the French ski school and they can cater for all abilities in both skiing and snowboarding.  Most instructors speak English and are a good standard however we find the lessons are predominately in French and they have large group sizes.

On the plus side they are the only ski school to offer group lessons from Super Chatel.

Prices start from €145 for 5 mornings.

Ecole de ski International

The International ski school is also based at Pre La Joux.  They have a maximum of 10 pupils per class and a good selection of English speaking instructors.

Prices start from €160

To get the most from your time on the slopes we highly recommend private ski lessons, as one to one tuition is the best way to perfect your turns and technique.  Lessons are usually two hours long and cost €65 an hour plus €5 per additional person.

Blue Chilli

Is a small independent ski school specialising in private lessons.  Their instructors are arguably the best in the area, and have the ability to transform your skiing in a two hour window.  So, whether you are looking to improve your powder turns or snowplough these are the guys to call.

Freelance Instructors

There are several freelance ski instructors who have been based in the area for many years and offer excellent private instruction.  Your chalet operator will probably have their contact details.

At Nine and Tenne we provide a concierge service to help organise all the key elements of your holiday.  If you are staying with us on a catered or self-catered ski holiday we will be able to book all your ski lesson requirements.  Please feel free to contact us if you need any advice on which ski schools to use in Chatel.

Big thank you to Paddy and our hosts Becks and Joe for a fantastic week. The service was outstanding and so lovely to have hosts who made you feel like the chalet was your home. We have stayed in many catered chalets and have always been very happy (we do our research!) but this was the best service to date. Joe and Becks went out of their way to ensure the menu met all our needs and were great fun to be around. Eli, our driver, was brilliant - always happy and made us laugh. He even helped put the kids boots on every morning! The location is really good - easy walk into town and several options for ski lifts in the morning. We would recommend skiing in Switzerland during peak times as you can still experience pretty empty slopes! Great value for money

Absolutely fantastic week. The chalet was gorgeous, spacious and lovely bedrooms. Paddy was a great host. The skis were delivered to the chalet which saved so much hassle as were the ski passes. Paddy booked our restaurants before we arrived. Cannot recommend more highly!! We will come back.

Les Clarines is a beautiful contemporary Chalet with amazing views of Châtel village and the surrounding mountains. Paddy gave us a wonderful welcome and we really enjoyed our stay. The hot tub was a bonus! We will definitely be back :)
