“Brilliant Skiing Lessons in Val Thorens”

My wife and kids had a couple of 2 hour lessons with Filippo and they all found it more beneficial than any lessons they have had in the past. He was great with the kids and they really warmed to him. Brilliant and effective teaching methods - my wife improved considerably in just two days. Highly recommended.

Andy W

We had a lesson as a family of 5 together with an instructor on our first day. Then one of my children went into one of their groups every morning. The instructors and the reception team seemed very professional, friendly, skilled and we have used other ski companies in the past, which have been good but I would definitely recommend Supreme. They were fantastic!

Samantha J

I spent a week having lessons in an adult class taught by the brilliant Max Linney: he's a fantastic teacher, super relaxed and easy going but really good at making you feel comfortable and confident and tailoring his instructions to each person's ability and confidence level. I really enjoyed my classes with him and its great that Supreme ensure the class size is small.

Jennifer O

We had a set of private group lessons which suited our group of six beginners really well. Rachel was a brilliant instructor, teaching us better technique in ways which we could understand and continue to practice on our own. She was also great at getting our confidence back if either of us had a wobble. I would thoroughly recommend lessons with Supreme.

Hay C

We had such a wonderful week in Morzine! We initially booked a lesson every other day but ended up having a lesson everyday of the week we were there as we enjoyed them so much. Nate, our instructor was fantastic and we both really feel our skiing has vastly improved!

Sarah H

Supreme is most definitely to be highly recommended to everyone. The instructors are extremely professional, friendly and talented (with good communication at all times re lesson schedules/ weather changes etc) and are able to adapt to all abilities with ease.

John S

I cannot recommend Supreme Ski School enough! Fantastic service, very helpful, and the most brilliant ski instructor! Daniele introduced both my children to the world of skiing and in less than a week, both of them were nailing blue runs and loving every minute of their holiday. I will definitely be using Supreme Ski again.

Fern S

My instructor Daniele was fantastic. He was a very experience Italian skier who spoke excellent English. He asked me where I’d skied before and for how long, and made sure to find out exactly what I wanted to improve. He understood that I was a nervous skier and gave really good tips on how to improve my technique. By the end of my lesson I was parallel skiing down blue slopes with ease.

I grew up in Rome and I started skiing in an italian ski resort called Terminillo. I use to be a ski racer and have done competitions in the FISI and FIS circuits up to age 18. I became a ski instructor in 2020 and have been teaching in Italy and France since. My favourite piste is Lac Blanc in Val Thorens. Favourite tip: If you are about to fall, don't fight it. Accept your sad, grim, dark fate. I'ts gonna happen anyway, so you might aswell take it like a champ. Jokes aside, snow is soft; relax and you won't feel a thing! My favourite thing about skiing is the tranquillity and silence; but hey, who am I kidding, if you ask me to get to the Folie Douce I love it just the same!

I grew up in a little town on lake Garda, the largest in Italy, called Padenghe sul Garda, in the north of Italy. I started skiing in the Dolomites, my father taught to me how to ski and passed down to me the passion. I was a racer before becoming an instructor, now I spend a lot of my time doing freeskiing and freestyle. My favorite piste in Meribel is La Face. The best advice I can give is to always take care of yourself and the other people when you’re on slopes. I love skiing in the deep snow, it feels like skiing on the clouds.

I was born and raised in Turin, after adolescence dedicated to mtb xc and motorcycling and other sports, I became passionate about the mountains first for snowboarding and then for alpine skiing.I started skiing when I was 11, after two winter seasons, I started using the snowboard. At the age of 15 I ran two seasons in bordercross and giant slalom with the Piedmontese regional committee. After my competitive activity I moved on to teaching.My favourite piste in resort is Masse. If in doubt go for it anyway. The most beautiful part of skiing and snowboarding is sliding on the snow, moving on the mountains and seeing breathtaking views

A little bit about Courchevel

Today

Courchevel is made up of 3 villages, Courchevel 1850 is the larger village of the three, there are plenty of facilities and après ski entertainment on your doorstep, aside from great skiing that is! It is also the main lift hub. Moriond, also known as 1650 is known for its gentle blue runs and great bars. There is also a large water sports complex and a toboggan run. Courchevel Village, also known locally as 1550, is the smallest and quietest village of the three. It sits at the bottom of a blue run and is a short gondola ride from 1850.
