The cost of ski instructors and guides does vary considerably (+/- 30%) depending on which country and resort you are skiing. The snow-sports professionals in larger more popular resorts such as Val d'Isere, St Anton and Verbier do charge higher rates as a general rule, but you will have more choice. The services in each resort do also vary, especially at peak times when we strongly advise that you enquire early as resorts can get fully booked months in advance!
A private guide or instructor is a great option if you want one-on-one instruction to improve your technique and confidence. It also allows you to dictate the pace of day, where you ski, stop for lunch and occasionally pick up and drop off locations. Also, if you and your friends are of a similar level you can share the lesson.
Group lessons allow you to join a group (usually a maximum of 8 people) who are all of a similar level. They are great if you’re trying skiing for the first time, or you want to develop from a beginner into a confident intermediate. The instructor will help you develop your understanding of ski technique, building your confidence and helping you to achieve your goals. You'll also get to ski with other people of your level, which makes it fun. You are on holiday after all!
