Group Ski Lessons

Group ski lessons are a fun way to learn with other skiers of a similar standard. Suitable from Novice to Expert, our professional instructors will help you develop your skills & enhance your enjoyment of the sport. Group ski lessons have a maximum class size of 8 participants.

All of our lessons are for 45 minutes, which includes a short safety briefing before heading out onto the slopes.

You can either book lessons 1 at a time, or take advantage of our special offer & book a block of 6 lessons at a reduced rate. 

The minimum age for our group ski lessons is 8 years old. We also run our very popular Alpine Stars Ski School for 3-16 year olds. Please see our section on Kids Lessons for details.
