THOUSANDS OF HAPPY CUSTOMERS
“We were looking for an instructor who could get me back on skis and teach our 6 year old daughter. Our daughter has some coordination difficulties so we were concerned that she would find skiing very difficult. Luckily for us we were assigned Karen who was just perfect in every way. Thanks to her skill, patience and friendly manner Florence loved every minute of her lessons. Karen also got me confidently back on my skis after a 12 year gap which was no mean feat! We will be back next spring!”
"Our first family ski holiday was very much enhanced by having Ken and Aaron as our ski instructors. They are professional but with a very human touch to the approach they use. This enables them to connect with kids, experienced skiers and petrified non-sporty mums. Just brilliant"
"It is great that over the years we have managed to ski with so many of your instructors and never been disappointed by any of them. Keep up the good work."
The Environmental Choice for Outdoor Clothing
Proud partners with Patagonia Outdoor Clothing and Gear
Our ski instructors and staff members are covered from head to toe in Patagonia. We strongly believe in Patagonia’s mission which is to:
” Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis”
The quality of Patagonia is highly dependent on the reduction of impact of the environment. Patagonia achieves this is by auditing the materials and methods they use to make their products, taking responsibility for the entire lifecycle of the products and furthermore examining how recourses are used for the buildings and facilities.
Patagonia’s goal is to reduce the adverse social and environmental impacts of the products and to make sure they are produced under safe, fair, legal and humane working conditions throughout the supply chain. Therefore, we couldn’t agree more with what Patagonia stands for and the ethics they practice promoting their brand.
Safety First, Second and Third
Know Before You Go- To Hell In a Heartbeat
Safety, could not be stressed enough. This time of the year the excitement of powder days builds up, but we can’t forget about the danger out there.
Please take every precaution when out on the mountains! Get to know your gear, take a course, practice with your friends so you can keep each other safe.
Having the proper gear is a step forward but knowing how to use it could save a life.
Our “Introduction to Off-Piste” clinics are a great way to learn the basics of off piste safety, etiquette and technique. With a maximum of six bookings per level we offer small groups thus guaranteeing great progress. All avalanche safety equipment is provided free of charge. This includes Ortovox transceivers, rucksack, shovel, and probe and once you are up and running, ABS Airbags.

Snowberry-Opens their second shop in Val d’Isere
Brand New Shop in the Main Street
Streetside or Slopeside, the best of both worlds
Snowberry opens their second shop in Val d’Isere. With the perfect location whether it’s streetside or slopeside, Snowberry has something for everyone.
Our partners at Snowberry are very passionate about what they do and here is why we choose to work with them.
“Our ski choice is just one area where we do it totally differently from everyone else.
Elsewhere you pay the same price whether you’re one of the lucky ones who gets one of the very few pairs of new skis or one of the unlucky ones who gets kit that’s a long way past its sell by date. We don’t think that’s fair!
We believe if you want new skis you should be able to book them and be guaranteed to get them, and if you are prepared to compromise on older skis you should get a cheaper price – so that’s the way we do it.
Likewise, with boots and bootfitting, we’re horrified how little importance (none!) other shops place on getting it right. It’s quite simple, if your boots are wrong you might as well forget it! With other shops, if you’re lucky they just might measure the length of your feet but many don’t even bother with that.
At Snowberry we carry out a full eight point, four dimensional foot analysis, and that’s before we use our expertise to select not just the right size but the right shape as well from our range of over 60 different boot models.
On top of that there’s our fantastic staff (almost 400 season’s of experience between us), our two huge and superbly-located shops and all of our unique, innovative and exclusive “Snowberry Extras” designed to make your ski hire experience – and your whole holiday – as perfect as possible.
Ski shops are NOT all the same.“
