Children’s ski lessons – group
Share the fun of learning to ski or snowboard in group lessons for children at your level.
Led by excellent English speaking instructors, ZigZag’s children’s ski lessons run with just 4 to 8 students per class. Our small group sizes guarantee each child gets the individual attention they deserve, while enjoying the camaraderie of a group atmosphere.
Forget long snakes trailing behind the instructor – we don’t compromise on quality and insist on genuine technical correction and encouragement.
ZigZag children’s ski lessons are great value for money because:
- our small groups mean less time in lift queues and more actual skiing time
- a medal for every child is included in the lesson price
- just 4 to 8 children per group*
- more individual attention for each child
- rolling assessment throughout the week, so no time wasted doing level tests
- lift queue priority, so your children can jump the queue during their lesson time
*Please note that sometimes a group can have 9 participants and another one 7 participants, if the instructors think a participant should join another class they can decide to move a participant from one group to another (leaving one group with 7 participants and another with 9 participants).
ZigZag’s children’s ski lessons are ideal for children aged 6 to 12 years of age with any level of experience, from beginner to expert. We guarantee small groups of 4 to 8 children maximum in order to ensure every child gets the attention they deserve.
For beginners aged 4 and 5 years of age, we offer Mini Mouse group lessons with reduced group sizes ideal for younger novices.
Children from 3 years of age can take part in our exclusive Tiny Tots private lessons.
If your child has skied before, please select their current level of ability from our list. Then, either use our online booking system, or contact us by email with the child’s name and date of birth. Get in early for peak holiday weeks, as our small groups do fill up quickly!
We recommend that all parents read the advice for parents on our practical advice page.
Children’s ski lessons run for 2.5hrs each day, from Monday to Friday. A choice of two or three sessions is available, depending on the period :
- Morning (09h15-11h45) or (09h30-12h00) depending on your dates
- Midday (12h00-14h30)
- Afternoon (14h00-16h30) or (14h45-16h45) or (14h45-17h15) depending on your dates
Medals and certificates of achievement are included in the lesson price and are awarded at the final lesson (so parents needn’t spend Friday evening at the ski school office).

“Just back from our first family skiing holiday. My three daughters (9, 7 and 5) and husband all had lessons with ZigZag in Samoëns and thoroughly enjoyed them. Claude was totally amazing with our youngest daughter, he was always very patient and caring in his approach giving her the confidence she needed to make an excellent start to her skiing. Marc was brilliant with our older girls, always making the lessons fun and ensured they made fabulous progress during the week. My husband also really enjoyed his lessons with Guy and we will be returning next year for more of the same! Can’t recommend them highly enough!”

“Just to say how wonderful our week was for Poppy and Otto with the very excellent Mika! They loved their week and as such are now extremely keen to return next year! Please send our very best wishes to Mika and thanks to you all.”

“Yannis was quite frankly superb, genuinely one of the nicest people I have met, and so clearly loves being a ski instructor and loves working for ZigZag, he was very proud of working there and what you guys are doing. He was a perfect match for Jago, without his enthusiasm and charisma, Jago would not have achieved as much as he did, nor would he have come away with such a passion for skiing.”
– Pippa W (Jan 2018)
“Freya and Rosie totally loved their beginner classes with instructor Thomas. They both raved about him continuously after their lessons. Both girls were disappointed to only have five days of lessons and have been begging to come back next year for lessons specifically with Thomas. Thomas made them laugh and really inspired them to love skiing. A big “thank you” for helping them have such a great first skiing experience.”
– Emma K (Jan 2018)
” Just a thank you – Sergio taught my children at the end of last week and was so kind and patient, especially with my daughter whose confidence was very low despite quite a few weeks of skiing previously. He was calm and measured and now Lucy is loving every minute and skiing until the last run is open!”
