Cham Van recommends Ongosa
Specialist ski and snowboard instructor & guide booking service
Ongosa do all the searching for you. It’s the easy way to find your perfect snowboard or ski instructor or off-piste guide! They do the leg-work, using a hand-picked network of the most experienced, highest-rated mountain guides and specialist ski or snowboard instructors - just let them know exactly what you'd like in Chamonix, Megeve, Les Contamines and St Gervais (they work further afield too).
Ongosa are able to work with any ski school, guiding agency or independent snowboard instructors and guides, who meet their exacting standards and demonstrate a genuine passion for teaching skiing and snowboarding, or guiding you off piste. This means that whatever you’re looking for, we know Ongosa can help you to book private, one-on-one sessions, confidence-boosting tuition, group lessons or a guide to explore the backcountry and tackle new challenges off piste.
Tell us where you're staying, dates and general requirements. We send your request onto local vetted ski & snowboard specialists and professionals.
You’ll receive well matched offers from up to five schools, agencies or individuals. Easier than searching the web or making calls.
Discuss your requirement directly or just book in your instructor or guide. Safe, secure, easy and at no additional cost.
We promote independent ski and snowboard instructors and guides, or boutique ski schools and guiding agencies over the larger organisations. This is because we think you’re more likely to get access to the most highly-qualified instructors and guides, with more experience and passion for their job, and therefore a better experience - simple!
We work with instructors who agree that the best approach is to tailor lessons to your skill level, experience and aims: whether you want to enjoy a week of family ski lessons, charge the steep stuff off piste, or just get down from a mountain lunch in one piece! All of the off-piste guides we work with come with glowing recommendations and have exceptional local knowledge that means that they’ll always hunt out the best conditions. We make it easy for you to hire a mountain guide and enjoy your first few turns off piste, or take on Europe’s world-famous descents. These snowboard instructors and guides combine years of experience, local knowledge and a commitment to passing on their passion for the mountains; your time with them will be the highlight of any ski holiday.
Let us know what you need, and one of our team will do all the work to find your ideal ski or snowboard instructor or mountain guide. We aim to offer you three suitable options and estimate that responses may take up to 48 hours, but that's easier than doing your own research, and holds the greatest chance of finding the best instructor or guide for you!
