New Generation Ski & Snowboard School, Courchevel

Top quality coaching with 20 years experience.

Courchevel was the first resort that this British-run ski school launched in 1998, so the resort holds a special place in their hearts! 

Their fully-qualified and experienced teams offer lessons in Courchevel 1650, Courchevel 1850 and La Tania, and have taught over 80,000 clients since the school started. They offer a wide range of lessons and experiences for all levels and abilities, from group lessons for beginners to off piste adventures. Resort Managers Dave Morris, Andrea Vitton & Sam Taylor lead a close knit team of 25 instructors with experts in slopestyle, off-piste, racing and knee-wobbling adventures. 

The school offer the following:

  • Group courses for adults and kids, for beginners to intermediates (2-¬8 per group)
  • Developer sessions for intermediates to advanced (1-6 people)
  • Private lessons for individuals or private groups of all levels
  • Guided adventures - try something new or explore the Three Valleys

One of the best ways to learn a snowsport is to take private lessons. One-to-one coaching gives you the attention you need to improve and achieve your goals quickly. You can also share a lesson with friends of a similar level for great value for money.

For 20 years, New Generation have been helping British skiers, of every ability, improve and get the best out of their holiday. To do this, they put great emphasis on employing only the top, fully-qualified instructors.

A private lesson can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Coaching or guiding, on- or off-piste, you decide. Private lessons are also great for developing particular skills such as bumps, off-piste, steeps, freestyle or carving. And if you want to go off-piste then New Generation can arrange your safety equipment and routes into the backcountry.

Lessons Available: 2hr; 2.5hr; 3hr; 4hr; All day (6hrs)

Examples of how you could spend your session:

  • Off-Piste - All instructors are qualified to teach & guide off-piste. The instructors can arrange safety equipment and routes into the backcountry. 
  • Guided Adventure - Experience the whole ski area with your instructor who is there to help you find the best snow, and restaurants!
  • Personal Coach - An intensive session of personal coaching. You decide what you want to work on and your coach will help you to reach your goals.
  • Skills-based - Learn something new or develop a specific skill. Choose from Bumps, freestyle, carving or off-piste among other things.

Where to meet

The ski school have three main meeting points in the Courchevel valley:

  • Courchevel 1650 - underneath the lift-line of the Ariondaz bubble. When you’re at the foot of the pistes looking at the large piste map you’ll see a small set of stairs to your right. Go up these stairs and up the small slope. They meet just above, between the two drag lifts.
  • Courchevel 1850 - next to the top of the Tovets chair lift. It is below the Croisette building on the opposite side of the road, just on the edge of the piste opposite the Kudeta bar. 
  • La Tania - next to the La Tania bubble. They meet by the bottom of the stairs next to the piste map.

  • "Always excellent, flexible and friendly English speaking tuition. Wish they had more morning slots available for private lessons though....." - Feefo
  • Excellent company. We had two sets of ski lessons in Morzine and Courchevel 1850, and both we excellent. Admin and booking team great, very friendly and professional throughout. Would definitely recommend New Generation.” - Feefo
  • “My son and partner had a fantastic week with Sam, a true professional who was at ease with both adults and children. Although both were beginners, he gave them a huge amount of confidence with his relaxed and fun-filled approach and incredibly, by the end of the week, they were both skiing amazingly well! I was really impressed with New Generation and wouldn't hesitate to use them again!” - Feefo
  • “Fantastic service from the moment I made the enquiry to the end of my private lesson. Rich not only gave me my confidence back but my skiing improved more in 2 hours than it had with 3 days practicing on the slopes. My only regret is not booking a private lesson sooner. Can't thank Rich enough. Worth every penny.”  - Feefo

They teach children from as young as 4 years in groups. For children in the Whippersnappers class (4-5 year olds) group sizes are limited to 6 and if there is more than 3 in a group they will try to provide an additional person to help the instructor.
