About our School
In 2001, our ski school in Verbier started with 12 instructors and a concept to deliver high quality, professional ski & snowboard instruction to clients of all ages & abilities. Since then, we’ve expanded into new resorts & become renowned for our impeccable service & our ability to match our instructors to each client’s needs. We now offer private and group lessons in over 10 different languages and our core goal of providing the best service and instruction remains at the heart of what we do.
Exceeding your expectations
Our goal will always be to ensure that you have an amazing time on the mountain. By employing highly qualified & experienced instructors we can match our instructor’s skill set to your needs.
Every instructor brings something unique; an expert in teaching kids, amazing patience, a racing background, great knowledge of off-piste skiing & more.
We are very proud that our core instructor team has been with us for a long time and this teaching and resort knowledge is invaluable. Of course, we welcome the odd newbie from time to time, often from our own in house training programs, but the family atmosphere between the team allows the instructors to settle in and become familiar with the workings of Altitude early on.
The teams knowledge of the resort, our knowledge of them and their experience in teaching is second to none, guaranteeing you a great day on the hill.
Full Time Office Team
Our sales team is managed by Laura & Mary who between them, have worked for Altitude for over 15 years. They know our products & team inside out & ensure that our unrivaled level of service continues and will advise you on what type of lesson is best for you, where is best to meet, and of course, select the best instructor suited to you.
