Ski or snowboard lessons are often a big part of our clients’ experience holidaying in the Alps, and advising people on ski school options in their chosen resort is a helpful step we often take.

With that in mind, we’d like to introduce you to Progression Ski & Snowboard School. Established in 2006, Progression has worked hard to establish itself among the top ski schools in the French Alps.


Diverse resort choices

Progression operates in the French ski resorts of Val d’Isère & Tignes, Les Gets and Morzine in the Portes du Soleil, plus the peaceful resort of Ste Foy — famous for its off-piste terrain. Each resort offers easy access to high-altitude slopes, with a diverse range of runs suited to skiers and snowboarders of all levels.

From the learner-friendly pistes on the new Solaise area in Val d’Isère to the steep and deep slopes of the Ste Foy backcountry, skiers and boarders choosing lessons with Progression can rest assured they’ll learn on terrain suited to their level.

The Progression service, on and off the mountain


With a maximum of four people in the adult groups, Progression is able to deliver close personal tuition to help ensure steady improvement. Youngsters on lessons ski with their instructor for a complete half-day — allowing parents plenty of time to explore the slopes at their own pace — and there are video analysis sessions to help learners see ways to better their technique on the snow.

Away from the pistes and parks, Progression Ski & Snowboard School provides a comprehensive sports massage and physiotherapy service. They offer tailor-made treatments to meet specific requirements, from relaxing in-chalet massage to complete biomechanical assessments.


A broad range of tuition


For skiers, the range of tuition includes private 3 hour to full-day one-on-one lessons for all levels, with one basic price per lesson / instructor and no added cost for extra students. Group lessons include a maximum of four people and run all week from 9am to midday, while technical clinics cover specialist skills including carving, racing, moguls and off-piste.

For snowboarders, options include private and group courses for boarders of all levels, plus freeride and ‘park+pipe’ sessions. Skiers looking to give boarding a try can book onto 3-day taster classes, and heli-trips can be arranged from Val d’Isère and surrounds.

In essence, as you’d expect of any ski school of this calibre, if you’re looking to make technical improvements to your skiing or riding style, Progression have the courses to suit.
