First Ski Experience

First skiing experience in the Alpes vaudoises

This unique package offers 4 hours of accompanied practice of alpine winter sports for beginners (ski and snowboard). It includes full equipment (from head to foot) and an instruction course (2 hours) for 1 to 9 people.

Discover the joys of alpine winter sports in five destinations of the Vaud Alps, in Villars, Les Diablerets, Leysin, Les Mosses and Château-d'Oex, at only 120 km from the airport of Geneva or 2 hours by train, and even less from Lausanne or Montreux. Upon arrival, head for the office of the Swiss Ski School, where the ski instructor you hired is waiting for you.

After receiving the ski equipment at the sports shop, the ski lesson takes place in the morning or afternoon in a nearby area for beginners, which offers great opportunities to take pictures. Complete your snow experience by reserving an optional tour, such as a ride in cable cars or on ski lifts up to Videmanette, a break in the revolving restaurant Kuklos or a getaway to Glacier3000.

Rates are per person and include the full equipment (from head to foot) and a 2-hour skiing lesson. Valid for one to nine people.
