The Altitude ski school journey started almost 20 years ago in 2001.  Our first school opened in Verbier closely followed by Grindelwald, Wengen, Gstaad, Zermatt, Andermatt, Megeve. From the beginning we believed in one simple philosophy that you deserve to have the best possible ski school experience, from reserving your ski lessons through to enjoying a wonderful day on the slopes.
