Grand Massif Ski Lessons

ZigZag Ski School

ZigZag Ski School is highly reputed and offers a 5 to 10% discount from all full-priced products for Alps Accommodation guests.

Their team of 15 fully qualified instructors all speak good English and are excellent with children and adults alike.  ZigZag teaches from both Samoens and Morillon.

A trusted favourite, ZigZag offers reliably high quality service with a team of ski and snowboard instructors focused on enhancing every aspect of your ski experience.  They know your time on the snow is precious and aim to help you make the most of it.  Small groups, punctual lesson times and instructors who’re full of energy help you progress quickly and enjoy every minute you’ve got.

ZigZag is the only ski school to offer group lessons capped at 8 participants maximum, even during peak holiday periods.  For young beginners their groups are even smaller, with just 6 children maximum per class.

With a strong lineup of experienced instructors and High Mountain Guides, ZigZag has been the local go-to for quality off-piste tuition and guidance for many years.  Ski touring from introductory to expert level is also a ZigZag speciality, and avalanche safety equipment is always included for every participant.

ZigZag stays open to accept bookings all year around, and their office is located in the main pedestrian street at 126 Grande Rue, Samoens. Their friendly English speaking secretaries will guide you through the booking process and offer advice by email or telephone.  Visit their website for more information about the vast range of services they offer.
