The concept of our Verbier five day course is to improve core skiing skills and build your confidence so you can ski faster, tackle steeper runs and moguls. You will acquire a clear understanding of good ski technique, learn how a ski works and how to adapt your technique to a variety of terrain. At least twice during the week we will film you skiing and give you positive and constructive feedback on how to make the next step in the development of your skiing.
Who is the course for?
Maximum Group Size: 6
Unlike other operators we have a maximum group size of 6. We believe this offers you the perfect balance for group safety whilst creating an enviroment for maximum enjoyment and learning.
Cost 750 CHF

Ski boots are the foundation to a perfect stance when skiing – Correctly fitted boots with a good orthotic foot bed can make a massive difference to how you ski. We can give advice on where to buy ski boots in the UK or in the Alps – Just send us a message and we will be happy to recommend a good boot-fitter.
Skis can be hired in resort, send us your requirements and we can advise and check availability for you or if you are looking to buy your own gear then we are happy to help you find the right equipment.
We recommend always skiing with a helmet whilst attending all Alpinemojo courses.
